DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 13, 2017, 12:31 PM (IDT)

Egyptian naval, air, special options and infantry units were flown to the Gulf Saturday to take part in two military exercises – one by the Bahrain armed forces, dubbed king Hamed 2, and the other in the United Arab Republic, named Zayed 2 after the Crown Prince. They are practicing counter-terror operations and the handling of roadside bombs. There is no word on the length of those exercises,or how long Egyptian forces will remain away from home.

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.
