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 25, 2016, 10:07 AM (IDT)
As firefighters battled unrelenting wildfires for the fourth day – from the Galilee, through Haifa and up to the Jerusalem Hills, the first flames leapt up early Friday, Nov. 25, outside Kiryat Gath in the southern Lachish district. The firefighting planes taking off at first light to extinguish the flames threatening Beit Meir in the Jerusalem hills, spotted dark figures constantly rekindling fires when they were dampened. Police gave chase and captured two of the arsonists.
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.
