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 4, 2017, 9:02 AM (IDT)
Seven months ago, Sgt. Elior Azaria was put on trial before the Jaffa Military Court. He was charged with manslaughter for shooting dead in March last year a Palestinian terrorist, who had attacked soldiers with a knife and was already shot and injured. Release of the videotape which showed the terrorist lying prone on the ground but still alive when Azaria came on the scene made the case a cause célèbre.
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.
