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 2, 2017, 2:59 PM (IDT)
IDF vehicles were hit by gunfire from northern Gaza on Thursday afternoon as they were traveling near the Israeli community of Karmia near the Gaza border. The vehicles were damaged but none of the troops were wounded. The IDF started returning fire shortly afterwards. Loud explosions can be heard in the area.
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.
