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 26, 2016, 10:24 AM (IDT)
The last day of defense testimony at the trial of IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, who is charged with manslaughter over the killing of a subdued terrorist in Hebron, began on Thursday at a military court in Jaffa. An IDF officer who serves as head of security for the Jewish community in Hebron testified that during the incident in March he saw that the terrorist was alive and moving before being shot by Azaria, and that there was definite concern on the scene that the terrorist was carrying a bomb.
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.
