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, 5:24 PM (IDT)
Israeli air strikes Monday afternoon targeted Hamas in the Gaza Strip hours after a rocket exploded on open ground in the Shear Hanegev region. Hamas positions outside the Nuseirat refugee camp and southern Gaza were hit, reportedly injuring four activists. The Palestinian group issued a statement threatening to retaliate for the IDF operations “blowing up the situation” – whatever the cost.
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.
