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 2, 2016, 4:38 PM (IDT)

Six residents of the Jerusalem Palestinian district of Shuafat have been charged with forming an ISIS cell for terrorist attacks around the country, focusing on Jerusalem. They were arrested after six weeks of surveillance by the Shin Bet and Israeli police. The cell plotted attacks on the Israeli Government compound in Jerusalem, abducting an IDF soldier and attacking Jewish and Christian “infidels.” Its members divided their activities between plotting attacks and religious teaching according to Islamic State precepts. 

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.
