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 6, 2017, 7:40 PM (IDT)

In a statement issued Friday, after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was questioned by police for the second time, his lawyer Yaacov Weinrot stressed that, although he can’t discuss the actual interrogation, he finds it necessary to shoot down some of the false media reports regarding two allegations. In first case, the gift of cigars by a close friend does not carry the slightest suggestion of illegality, and can certainly not be deemed a criminal offense.” Referring to the second case, Weinrot said: “I was left completely unworried after hearing the prime minister’s account. No money was involved – not even a loan – and I am convinced that once his answers reach the relevant quarters, not even the slightest grain of suspicion will be attached to him. 

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.
