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, 12:16 PM (IDT)

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that in the last two days, Tehran has dispatched large-scale Revolutionary Guards forces from central Iran to Falahiyeh, a town in the southern Ahwaz oil region which is dominated by a restive population of Arab descent.. Violent riots erupted there after security forces killed a young man with shots to the head and opened fire on two motorcyclists, who apparently tried to ram a Guards checkpoint. The rioters set fire to police stations and the vehicles of local officials. 

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.
