But did you know that even UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has an Israeli bodyguard?
Meet Medad Ashkenazi, who during his service in the Israeli army worked for the Coordination and Liaison Office where he handled contacts with the United Nations.
For the past eight years, Ashkenazi has been working as a security guard at the UN, and for two years now, he has been a personal guard of the secretary-general. Ashkenazi was offered his current position after another Israeli guard named Osnat was promoted to a more senior position within the UN’s security apparatus.
