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 17, 2017, 3:01 PM (IDT)

 Pakistani forces killed and arrested dozens of suspects in sweeping raids overnight and into Friday as the death toll rose to 88 from a massive ISIS suicide bombing at a famed Sufi shrine in Sehwan in the southern Sindh province. This was the deadliest terror attack in Pakistan in years. Islamabad lashed out at Kabul. Charging that the Islamic State attack was masterminded from sanctuaries in Afghanistan, Pakistan opened cross-border artillery fire into its neighbor and closed the important Torkham border crossing. The raids by paramilitary Rangers across Pakistan left at least 38 terrorists dead.

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.
