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 21, 2017, 8:40 AM (IDT)
After Hizballah claimed that the Syrian army had shot down an Israeli drone over the Golan, the Israeli army spokesman Tuesday confirmed that a miniature Skyrider UAV, in the use mainly of the IDF artillery units for the purpose of surveillance, had crashed on the Golan due to a technical fault. It was emphasized that no security data had been exposed. The incident apparently coincided with the Israeli drone attack that killed a Syrian militiaman near Quneitra two days ago.
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.
