DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 25, 2017, 9:22 AM (IDT)

 “Daesh launched an attack Friday with a suicide car bomb and gunmen on the 2nd border guard regiment near Trebil,” on the Iraqi border with Jordan, said an officer in the border guard. Among the dead Iraqi guards were two officers, he said. .The border with Jordan lies in Anbar, a vast western province where Daesh fighters have lost most of their urban strongholds but continue to harass government forces.

Iraqi forces claim that as ISIS defenses give way in western Mosul against advancing Iraqi government and US forces, they are staging diversionary terrorist attacks in other parts of the country.

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.
