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 8, 2016, 5:55 PM (IDT)

Hundreds of police including specialist commandos combed a residential area of the eastern German city of Chemnitz on Saturday for Syrian-born Jaber Albakr, 22, suspected of planning a bomb attack. They failed to find him in a raid on an apartment, after an intelligence tip-off, but did find traces of explosives. Although the “where, when, how and why” of the attack was unclear, local residents were advised to stay indoors.

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.
