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, 7:01 PM (IDT)

One of Israel’s top generals said Thursday that a senior member of Hamas linked to the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula is alive and receiving medical treatment in Gaza, despite claims by Hamas that he was killed. Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, Israel’s coordinator of government activities in the territories, added that the attempts by Hamas to use lies to conceal its smuggling cooperation with ISIS in the Sinai does not go unnoticed by Israel.
Balal Brahama, a senior Hamas weapons smuggler, is actually receiving a salary from the military wing of the terrorist organization and is currently being taken care of by a member of the military wing who is the Hamas liaison with ISIS figures in the Sinai.   

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.
