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 28, 2016, 9:08 AM (IDT)

The security cabinet Sunday approved the purchase of another 25 F-35i Lighting II stealth fighters from the US, in addition to the 33 already on contract.  The first F-35i (Israel-named Adir”) is due to be delivered in two weeks. The Lockheed Martin Fort Worth plant has adapted this fifth-generation fighter to IAF specifications by incorporating an Israeli electronic warfare system and making it compatible with Israeli munitions requirements. The price of $100 million per unit comes under the US military aid program.

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.
