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 6, 2016, 3:02 PM (IDT)

The Israel Police and the Shin Bet domestic security agency announced Thursday that six Israeli Arabs have been arrested on suspicion of helping plan a bombing attack. The plot was uncovered when an Israeli farmer discovered a bag containing explosive devices that had been thrown by the Hizballah organization over the northern border fence into an area near the city of Metulla. The suspects now face charges including providing information to the enemy for espionage, aiding the enemy in time of war, illegal import of weapons and contact with a foreign agent. All six are from the village of Ajar, located in the triangle where the borders of Israel, Syria and Lebanon meet.

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.
