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 13, 2016, 5:19 PM (IDT)
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) passed a resolution on Thursday that redefines the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem as Muslim holy sites. It also identifies them using Arabic names. The vote was passed with 24 in favor, including Russia and China, six opposed and 26 abstaining. The representatives of two countries were absent.
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.
