DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. December 1, 2016, 4:01 PM (IDT)

The chief of staff of Iran’s military, Gen. Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, said Wednesday that his country needs distant military bases so it is planning to establish ones on the coasts of Yemen and Syria. He claimed such an Iranian military presence on Middle Eastern shores ”is worth dozens of times more” than nuclear technology. Tehran is adopting a strategy similar to that of Moscow, which is preparing to intervene in Libya in exchange for use of an airbase, as DEBKAfile reported exclusively on Monday.   

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.
