DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 30, 2016, 12:06 PM (IDT)

A Saudi security officer was killed and a second was wounded in a drive-by shooting Sunday while on patrol in the Eastern Province city of Qatif. Last week, gunmen shot dead two security officers in nearby Dammam and  two were gunned down there in September. Much of Saudi oil production is centered in the Eastern Province, which is home to a large Shiite Muslims community, among which Tehran actively supports a subversive underground.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
