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 11, 2016, 1:11 PM (IDT)

Gunmen Tuesday burst into the office of Deryan Aktert, head of the Turkish ruling party’s branch in the southeastern region of Diyarbakir and shot him dead. A day earlier, drive-by shooters killed Aydin Mustu, the ruling party’s deputy leader in the Ozalp district of Van, a city 350km to the east of Diyarbakir near the Iranian border..

The separatist Kurdish PKK Workers Party is suspected of both attacks. 

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.
