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 21, 2016, 6:01 PM (IDT)

On Oct. 21, five days into the Mosul operation, ISIS fighters and suicide bombers suddenly hurled themselves on the Iraqi oil city of Kirkuk in a coordinated attack.  debkafile: They caught US, Iraqi and Kurdish generals leading the attack on Mosul unawares and opened a second front to their rear.

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.
