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, 2:42 PM (IDT)
It was revealed on Wednesday that Israeli security forces captured two Palestinian terror cells from the military wing of Fatah, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, in January. One of the cells was in A-Ram, north of Jerusalem, while the other was in the Al-Aroub refugee camp in the Hebron area. They are suspected of throwing explosive devices at IDF troops and of planning gun attacks against Israelis traveling on Route 60. The Shin Bet domestic security service said that an indictment of the main suspects, including some who were previously jailed in Israel for security-related crimes, is to be filed in the coming days.
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.
