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, 12:18 PM (IDT)

Up to 2,000 members of Palestinian Authority security forces stormed the Balata refugee camp of Nablus, Friday, reporting they had come to make arrests. They were greeted with massive gunfire and withdrew after four hours without detaining anyone. There are unofficial reports of casualties in this Palestinian versus Palestinian confrontation.  Nablus has become a hub of Palestinian West Bank defiance against the PA authorities headed by Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah. Local disturbances have been staged recently in demand for the released of jailed men. The PA has reacted with a crackdown and arrests.

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.
