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 5, 2016, 6:43 PM (IDT)
A Palestinian who was detained by Israeli police after raising their suspicion near a light rail station in Jerusalem on Wednesday afternoon was found to have a gas gun and handcuffs in his possession.

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.
