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 15, 2017, 10:16 AM (IDT)
DEBKAfile's intelligence sources report explusively on Wednesday that Iran and the Palestinian Authority held secret talks in the Belgian capital. The Iranian delegation was made up entirely of officials representing Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the sources said.
On Monday, DEBKAfile reported exclusively on the establishment of a direct diplomatic channel between the Iranian leadership in Tehran and the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah, with Jibril Rajoub, a member of the Fatah central committee, in charge of the Palestinian side. It was reported on Wednesday that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is considering appointing Rajoub as his deputy.
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.
