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 27, 2017, 9:25 AM (IDT)
A mutual fault-finding furor over Israel’s 2014 anti-terror war in the Gaza Strip greeted Binyamin Netanyahu on his return from a “wonderful” trip to Australia early Monday, the first by a serving |sraeli prime minister. The State Comptroller’s report on Operation Protective Edge is due for publication Tuesday afternoon. The operation put an end to nearly a decade of Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israel from Gaza, but was unable to put to rest the threat of the undiscovered terror tunnels snaking under the border. Leaks from the report have sparked a storm of controversy over who was responsible for what.
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.
