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 13, 2016, 8:07 PM (IDT)

The IDF chief of staff, Lieut. Gen. Gady Eisenkot, awarded a special citation to the elite “Duvdevan” unit at a ceremony on Thursday marking the 30th anniversary of its establishment. Duvdevan’s soldiers specialize in infiltrating hostile population centers in disguise, especially in Judea and Samaria, blending in with the locals and capturing wanted men. They use unique weapons and classified technologies available only to them, and mainly operate based on intelligence received from the Shin Bet domestic security service. The ceremony at the unit’s base was also attended by Maj. Gen. Roni Numa, head of the Central Command, Brig. Gen. Lior Carmeli, commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, and other senior officers.

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.
