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 19, 2016, 7:11 PM (IDT)
A terrorist wearing an Afghan army uniform opened fire with an automatic weapon inside an Afghan army base near the capital Kabul on Wednesday, killing two Americans, one soldier and one civillian. Three others were wounded and the terrorist was killed in the exchange of fire that followed. The US military as well as American security and intelligence services provide counterterror instruction and training to Afghan special forces at the base.
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.
