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 5, 2016, 9:45 AM (IDT)

A spokesman for Turkey’s military said Wednesday morning that one soldier was killed and three were wounded in a battle with Islamic State fighters in Ziyara, east of al-Rai in northern Syria as Ankara’s operation “Euphrates Shield” continues. The announcement also said 18 fighters from the terrorist organization were killed. The previous day, two Turkish soldiers were killed in an attack by the PKK Kurdish underground on a military base in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir. 

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.
