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 13, 2017, 12:40 PM (IDT)

Brett McGurk, the senior US official in the counter-ISIS coalition, warned Sunday that any jihadists fighters left in Mosul would die their since the ninth Iraqi army division had cut off the last road out of the city and trapped them there. No more than 2,500 jihadists are believed remaining in Mosul and Tal Afar, according to a US defense official. It is thought there may be as many as 600,000 civilians still trapped in ISIS-controlled areas of Mosul. A mass grave was discovered over the weekend containing the remains of hundreds of “civilian prisoners” who were executed by ISIS gangs.

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.
