DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. June 16, 2017, 1:57 PM (IDT)

DEBKAfile’s Middle East intelligence counterterrorism sources strongly doubt Moscow’s qualified claim that a Russian missile strike targeting a high-level ISIS conference in southern Raqqa on May 27 actually killed Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. Moscow does not have 100pc confirmation of his death, Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday.

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.
