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 15, 2017, 9:52 AM (IDT)

Thirteen top officials of Israel Aircraft Industries, including senior officers in the IDF reserves, were arrested on Wednesday morning on suspicion of corruption. The Israel Police said in a statement that members of the board of directors, managers and low-level staff were also among those believed to be involved. IAI, one of the main suppliers of weapons to the IDF, employs about 20,000 people and has sales of nearly $5 billion a year. It provides the IDF with satellites, drones, missile batteries, radar systems, missile boats, and protection systems for tanks and ships as well as helicopters and other aircraft. 

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.
