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 18, 2017, 9:59 AM (IDT)

Israeli Ambassador Cary Koren was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry Friday for clarifications on Israel’s air strikes over Syria that night. He had a conversation with Russian Dep. Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov on recent developments in Syria, a ministry statement said. DEBKAfile: Israeli diplomats are rarely called for clarifications by the foreign ministry in Moscow, since concluding an agreement to coordinate aerial activity over Syria. This time was different because the Israeli air strikes near Palmyra appear for the first time to have targeted the northern T-4 air base, which is used by the Russian military. It also serves Iranian military movements in Syria.
Ambassador Koren presented is credentials to President Vladimir Putin just one day earlier.

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.
