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 11, 2017, 11:47 AM (IDT)

Revolutionary Guars Air Force Commander Brig. Gen. Ali Hajizadeh complained Thursday that Iran backed down from launching a civilian satellite under threat from US President Donald Trump. “It is suspicious to us that a satellite-carrying a rocket that has civilian purposes goes back to the warehouse after an American threat. Until when shall we pay ransom and demonstrate weakness?” He asked in an unusual tone of protest against the Islamic Republican government in Tehran. Hajizadeh urged President Hassan Rouhani to adopt an “offensive” approach toward the United States and prove that “we’re not people of retreat.”

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.
