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, 4:29 PM (IDT)
Five days after the Istanbul terror attack, a car bomb exploded at a courthouse in the western Turkish city of Izmir Thursday followed by a gun battle between two terrorists and police. Reports said the two attackers were killed. A third is on the run. A large number of judges and lawyers stood at the entrance to the courthouse at the time.
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.
