DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. May 17, 2017, 8:49 AM (IDT)

Nine people were injured on Tuesday in a clash between supporters and opponents of Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan outside the Turkish embassy in the US capital. Reports said members of the president’s security detail attacked anti-Erdogan demonstrators. Two people were arrested. The local police did not specify which groups were involved, and the State Department declined to comment. The incident occurred on the same day that the Turkish leader met US President Donald Trump in the Oval 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.
