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 6, 2016, 2:08 PM (IDT)
Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service announced Thursday that a number of Islamic institutions in Nazareth and Umm el-Fahem linked to incitement and rioting in Jerusalem, including on the Temple Mount, have been closed and their bank accounts containing hundreds of thousands of shekels have been frozen in a joint operation with the Israel Police. The institutions including the Qpress agency were designated as illegal organizations and their leaders were warned not to continue operations.
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.
