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 1, 2017, 2:44 PM (IDT)

A Syrian military spokesman said Wednesday that government forces with Russian air support are about to enter Palmyra in the coming hours and drive ISIS out of the heritage city. He said that the Palmyra Triangle to the west of the city has already been captured.  DEBKAfile: The fall of Palmyra would open the way for Russian and Syrian forces to attack the thousands of ISIS fighters concentrated in the eastern Deir ez-Zour town snf trhion. In Dec. 2016, ISIS forced Syrian and Russian forces who had captured the town to retreat 

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.
