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, 5:56 PM (IDT)

The US has sent two guided missile destroyers and an afloat forward staging base to patrol the waters off the coast of Yemen after Houthi rebels attacked a vessel from the UAE’s fleet with an anti-ship missile. The Pentagon said Tuesday that the USS Mason, the USS Nitze and the USS Ponce are protecting the freedom of maritime traffic in the Bab el-Mandab Strait. 

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.
