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 8, 2017, 12:01 PM (IDT)

It revealed on Wednesday that the Israeli security forces have recently broken up a Palestinian weapons smuggling ring. Nine Palestinian arms dealers and manufacturers have been arrested so far. The weapon components were first ordered online from foreign companies and then sent by ship to the Israeli port of Ashdod. The parts were then transferred by regular mail or by private couriers to addresses in the Balata refugee camp or in Nablus, where the weapons were constructed. The IDF, the Shin Bet domestic security service and the Israel Police launched the operation against the smugglers last summer.

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.
