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 10, 2016, 5:05 PM (IDT)
Israeli police and militlary have arrested nine Palestinians in Samaria and East Jerusalem on suspicion of forming a terrorist cell, carrying out bombing attacks on IDF forces and other forms of terror. Interrogation of the suspects led to the discovery this week of a laboratory for making explosive devices, a supply ready for use and 120 kg of raw materials for their manufacture. The cell was discovered in a joint operation of the Shin Beit, the IDF and police. The suspects are being held in remand pending trial.
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.
