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 9, 2017, 2:57 PM (IDT)

Turkey’s police announced Thursday at a briefing for journalists that it had arrested four ISIS terrorists in the city of Gaziantep who were planning a series of simultaneous terrorist attacks in the country. The police displayed equipment seized from the terrorists including 24 suicide belts weighing a total of 150 kilograms; 14 kilograms of TNT; two Kalashnikov rifles; 19 cellular telephones that had been converted into timers; 21 mechanical timers; handguns; and a large amount of ammunition.  

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.
