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, 2:07 PM (IDT)
According to initial reports, a truck driven by a Palestinian terrorist plowed into a group of IDF soldiers at the promenade of Jerusalem's Armon HaNatziv neighborhood early Sunday afternoon, killing four of the soldiers and injuring about 15 others. At least five of the injured are in very serious to critical condition. Some of the soldiers were trapped under the truck. The terrorist was shot and killed by an armed civillian and soldiers from the group. The casualties are being rushed to nearby hospitals.
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.
