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, 2:11 PM (IDT)

The fire in Haifa continued to rage on Thursday afternoon. Houses were ablaze and thick smoke filled the air in many neighborhoods, mainly Romema, Ahuza and others nearby. There was utter chaos on highways and other main roads after the Israel Police ordered residents to evacuate. Damon Prison, located near Haifa University, and the nearby Carmel Prison were preparing for immediate evacuation. Firefighting aircraft were operating above four areas of the city. Also, the IDF’s Home Front Command called up 400 reserve firefighters. 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.
