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 8, 2017, 9:36 AM (IDT)

US State Department Spokesman Mark Toner reiterated Tuesday that Washington “would like to see Israel hold back on settlement activity”, as President Donald Trump said during his press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu last month. He added that the US is “in discussions with Israel as to what that would look like” but is “still at a stage where we are looking at the situation and formulating next steps”. Toner made the comments at the first State Department press briefing since the Trump administration took office.

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.
