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, 7:17 PM (IDT)
A 16-year-old Palestinian was killed by gunfire from IDF troops on Thursday afternoon after he threw stones at soldiers at Beit Omar intersection on Route 60, near Hebron, and did not heed their orders to stop. One soldier sustained a very minor injury to his head from a stone and was treated on the scene.
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.
