The ISA is a national agency which acts in accordance with the laws of the State.. The missions, powers and functions of the ISA were established by the ISA Statute of 5752 – 2002, which is a public law, accessible to all.
With this in mind and taking into consideration the public's right to know efforts have been made in the construction of this site to publicize information regarding the ISA's varied activities to the fullest extent possible without posing a danger to state security.
Nonetheless, the major part of ISA activity accords with its slogan, "the unseen shield" and thus, naturally, is confidential. For that reason, this site provides information regarding only a small portion of the ISA's activity, and does not provide classified information regarding numerous past ISA operations nor ISA methods of operation.
