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 9, 2017, 5:34 PM (IDT)
A shooting Thursday afternoon on Baron Hirsch St. in the Petach Tikva market in central Israel was followed by a stabbing attack at the nearby Hovevei Zion St. Five people were injured. A Palestinian resident of the West Bank was neutralized and detained for questioning. The local police confirmed that the motive for the combined attack was terrorism.
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.
