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 2, 2017, 7:30 PM (IDT)

The US military carried out a series of attacks against the Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQIP) organization on Thursday. US spokesmen said the 20 strikes in the areas of Abyan, Al Bayda and Shabwah targeted weapons depots, command centers and heavy weapons such as missiles. They did not specify which US forces were involved but said the assault dealt a major blow to AQIP’s ability to carry out terrorist attacks outside of Yemen.
Earlier, US sources said four Al Qaeda terrorists were killed in airstrikes by two American drones in the southern part of the country.  

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.
