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 29, 2016, 9:20 AM (IDT)
A Palestinian tried to run down IDF soldiers guarding the Ofra checkpost outside Ramallah Friday night. He then jumped out of the vehicle and came at them with a knife. The soldiers, escaping injury, opened fire to stop the assailant. He later died of his wounds. Later, there were gunshots at the gates of Ofra. No one was hurt.
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.
