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 31, 2016, 1:48 PM (IDT)
According to unnamed British intelligence sources, Vladimir Putin plans to use the election turmoil in Washington as a distraction to this week launch a full-scale assault on the rebels holding eastern Aleppo and secure a victory by mid-January. The same sources point to the Russian aircraft carrier on its way to the Mediterranean and the sighting of three Russian submarines passing through the Irish Sea. This report is unconfirmed from any other source and is awarded low credibility by DEBKAfile’s military sources.
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.
