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 30, 2016, 3:48 PM (IDT)
It was revealed on Wednesday that the Israel Police and the Shin Bet domestic security service recently arrested an Israeli Arab who is suspected of trying to join the Islamic State organization in Syria. The young man, a resident of the town of Jaljulia in central Israel who was a minor when he was taken into custody, was found to have a Glock pistol and an Uzi submachine gun in his possession. The announcement by the Shin Bet also said the investigation has found a great deal of evidence that the suspect maintained close ties with ISIS in Syria, and that he possessed and used weapons.
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.
