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 28, 2017, 12:00 PM (IDT)

Hundreds of police, Border Police and IDF soldiers Tuesday begin to evict the householders from nine homes in the center of Ofra, a Jewish community situated on the highway between Nablus and Jerusalem. The evictions ahead of demolitions face resistance from protesters from inside Ofra and sympathizers from outside. It followed a Supreme Court ruling Monday by Chief Justice Miriam Naor rejecting the residents’ request to seal their homes instead of demolishing them. The land on which the buildings stood has not been claimed by any Arab owner.

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.
