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, 9:23 AM (IDT)

An American soldier was killed on Tuesday during a joint operation by US and Afghan special forces against Islamic State’s Khorasan Province affiliate. The soldier died after being seriously wounded by a roadside bomb as he traveled in a vehicle in the area of Achin, not far from the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. He was the third US soldier killed this year in Afghanistan, where the US has about 10,000 troops.    

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.
