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 13, 2017, 12:31 PM (IDT)

The Lebanese President, former army chief Michael Aoun, arrived in Egypt Monday for his first visit to Cairo in 55 years. He met with President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi. Aoun was elected to the top post in October. Sunday, he praised Iran’s Lebanese proxy, Hizballah:  ”As long as the Lebanese army is not strong enough to battle Israel … we feel the need for its existence,” Aoun told the Egyptian TV network CBC in reference to Hizballah, adding “It has a complementary role to the Lebanese army.”

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.
