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 20, 2016, 1:15 PM (IDT)

It was revealed on Thursday that Israel’s security forces have arrested a terror cell that planned to bomb an event hall in the southern part of the country as well as carry out an attack for the purpose of kidnapping and murdering an IDF soldier. The cell of the Islamic Jihad organization was led by a resident of Khan Yunis who was arrested September 21 at the Erez Crossing on the Gaza border as he tried to enter Israel. Also arrested were three other Arabs, two who were residing illegally in Israel and one who had been granted residency under the country’s family unification law. The details on the arrests were released with the filing of an indictment against the four at a district court in Beersheba.

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.
