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 22, 2016, 3:51 PM (IDT)

Brig-Gen. Adel Ragai, commander of the army’s 9th armored division based in the military base of Dahshour west of Cairo, was gunned down Saturday near his home in an eastern Cairo suburb, by an Islamist group tied to ISIS in Sinai. This suburb is near the highway to the Suez Canal city of Ismailia and would have given the killers a good chance of getting away. Terrorist attacks in Cairo have multiplied in recent weeks, targeting such top officials as the senior state prosecutor, who survived a bomb car attack, and the former Mufti of Egypt who escaped a shooting unharmed.

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.
