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 6, 2017, 11:26 AM (IDT)

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman disclosed Monday a notice from the Trump administration that an Israeli declaration of sovereignty in parts of Judea and Samaria would prompt an immediate crisis with Washington. He reported this in a briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security committee, in response to demands from parts of the government coalition to take this step. Lieberman’s advice was for the government to stress clearly and unequivocally that it has no intention of taking this step. “I am telling you plainly that the Trump administration has told us in a direct message that annexation would provoke a crisis with the new US administration.” 

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.
