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 20, 2017, 4:32 PM (IDT)
Anis Hajj Yahya, 35, from Taibeh, was charged in court Monday with swearing allegiance to the Islamic State for the purpose of carrying out terror attacks against Israelis and of contacting a foreign agent. The accused plotted an attack on a Tel Aviv bus and murders of Israeli soldiers. The Shin Bet investigation found him in possession of manuals for mixing deadly poisons including sarin in explosive devices.
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.
