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, 1:49 PM (IDT)
A burst of gunfire from Lebanese territory was directed at a group of IDF troops along with Israeli and foreign camera crews that had briefly stopped next to the border fence near the city of Metulla on Wednesday afternoon. The shooting did not result in any casualties or damage. The incident came less than an hour after an IDF soldier in the Ramim Ridge area on the northern border was hit by gunfire from the Lebanese side of the fence, sustaining a minor wound to his hand.
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.
