DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. November 24, 2016, 12:29 PM (IDT)

The fire in Haifa spread to more areas of the city on Thursday. Thick smoke hung over the neighborhoods of Ramot Sapir, Romema, Ahuza and Golda, which are being evacuated. Evacuations have already been carried out at kindergartens and schools. Haifa City Hall has set up two evacuation centers, including one at the old municipal stadium. Meanwhile, Turkey, Russia and Croatia announced that they were sending planes to provide assistance. For more details on the arson that is only targeting Israel’s Jewish cities and towns, see DEBKAfile’s special report.     

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.
