DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. January 5, 2017, 11:38 AM (IDT)
In an incident in the Israeli city of Beersheba on Thursday morning, a 20-year-old Bedouin attacked and wounded a security guard and then stole his handgun and fled. Detectives from the city's police arrested the Bedouin after a foot chase and found the gun in his pants. He was taken in for questioning by the security forces.
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.
