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, 8:38 AM (IDT)

IDF Sgt. Ido Ben-Ari, a 21-year-old tank commander, was killed when his tank overturned during training on the Golan Heights, the IDF Spokesman’s Office said. Three other soldiers sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital for treatment. The head of the Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir, appointed an investigation team to look into the incident, while the commander of IDF ground forces, Maj. Gen. Kobi Barak, ordered the halting of tank training until the investigation is completed.

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.
