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 8, 2017, 11:16 PM (IDT)

A few minutes before 11 pm local time, two red rocket alerts were sounded in Eilat, followed by four explosions. At least three were caused by Iron Dome batteries which intercepted all the estimated three or four incoming rockets fired from Sinai. It would not be the first time that Islamist terrorists have launched rockets against Israel’s southernmost town. The town’s center was not struck, nor were there casualties. People vanished from the streets and the beaches, in a trice, as security forces combed through the town’s its environs to locate the rocket landings.

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.
