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 16, 2017, 1:54 PM (IDT)

Jason Greenblatt, special envoy of US President Donald Trump, met Thursday with the heads of two Israeli settlements at a hotel in Jerusalem. The talks with Oded Ravivi, head of the Efrat Regional Council, and Yossi Dagan, head of the Shomron Regional Council, were the first of their kind between a senior US official and representatives of Israeli settlements. They discussed recent diplomatic initiatives and the continued building of settlements. Greenblatt was to meet later in the day with Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and the country’s chief rabbis.  

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.
