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 9, 2017, 4:09 PM (IDT)
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Thursday afternoon. At the beginning of the meeting, Netanyahu said that even today Iran says clearly that it seeks to destroy the Jewish state, and writes it on their ballistic missiles. Extreme Shia Islamic terror led by Iran threatens not only Israel but also the region and the entire world, he said, adding that Russia and Israel are partners in the desire to prevent any kind of victory for radical Islam.
DEBKAfile sources: The prime minister focused on Iran in his opening remarks, but the main topic during the talks was Hizballah's deployment in Syria.
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.
