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, 10:28 AM (IDT)
In a raid Tuesday of a Palestinian village, Taysar in Samaria, west of Jenin, the Shin Bet and the IDF Bik’ah Brigade discovered a large cache of war materiel, including an RPG, a Negev submachine gun, a large quantity of ammunition and crates of IDF issue smoke grenades. They were led to the cache by three locals known to the authorities as gunrunners.
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.
