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 23, 2016, 6:00 PM (IDT)

A fire broke out Wednesday afternoon in a forest next to the community of Gilon in the western Galilee and spread to Gilon itself, forcing the evacuation of all the residents. A large force of firefighters is now attempting to extinguish the blaze. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh received a briefing on the wildfires in central and northern Israel at an Israel Police command center. Netanyahu said that he had instructed the National Security Council to coordinate the offers of firefighting aid from nearby countries, including Cyprus and Greece.

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.
