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 8, 2017, 8:29 PM (IDT)
Three of four victims of the Palestinian terrorist attack at Armon Hanatziv in Jerusalem Sunday were officers – two of them women: They have been identified as 2nd Lt. Yael Yekutiel, 20, from Givatayim (promoted posthumously to full lieutenant), officer cadet Shir Hajaja, 22, from Maaleh Adummim, and Shira Tzur, 20, from Haifa. The last two were promoted to 2nd Lt. after their death. The fourth fatality was Corp. Erez Auerback, 20, from Alon Shevut.
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.
