"Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East given the nuclear arms it possesses," ElBaradei was quoted as saying.
ElBaradei welcomed Amano's appointment: "I trust that he will lead the agency with vision, impartiality and courage," he told the General Conference.
Israel privately heaved a sigh of relief Thursday at the election of Japan's Yukiya Amano to replace Mohamed ElBaradei as head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Analysts say he is regarded as a reserved technocrat who will seek to de-politicise the top IAEA post in contrast to his sometimes outspoken predecessor.
Mr Amano has said he will stick to the IAEA's technical mandate of inspections to prevent proliferation of nuclear weapons, while fostering the use of nuclear energy for economic development and medicine.
