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, 8:23 AM (IDT)
The IAF attacked two Hamas targets in Gaza early Thursday morning in retaliation for the firing of a rocket at Israeli territory on Wednesday night. The rocket hit an unpopulated area of the community of Sderot HaNegev near the Gaza border. DEBKAfile: The attack was different from Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman's policy of responding strongly against Hamas for any fire from Gaza. Hamas had threatened recently that it would respond strongly to any bombing or fire by Israel if the policy continues.
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.
