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 19, 2017, 7:15 PM (IDT)

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is due to meeting President Tan Keng Yam after he lands in Singapore Monday morning, followed by talks with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, a visit to Singapore’s Magen Avot Synagogue, which dates back to 1878, and a meeting with representatives of the state’s 2,500- strong Jewish community. This is the first visit to the island-state by an Israeli prime minister, who is accompanied by his wife Sara..

Tuesday afternoon, he flies to Sydney, landing the next morning for a day of meetings with the Governor-General Peter Cosgrove and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, followed by a joint press conference.

The two prime ministers will attend an event at Sydney’s Great Synagogue and on Thursday, they will visit the Moriah College Jewish day school. On Friday, Netanyahu is scheduled to meet opposition leader Bill Shorten.

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.
