DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. July 24, 2017, 9:43 PM (IDT)

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu talked on the phone Monday evening to Jordan’s King Abdullah who is visiting the United States, after a high-ranking Israeli emissary, since revealed as Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman, returned from a mission in Amman. There, he sat down with a senior Jordanian security official to iron out an agreed formula for solving the crisis that erupted Sunday after an Israeli embassy guard shot dead two Jordanians while fighting off a stabbing attack. Argaman also sought permission to release the embassy staff for its return home. During the day, Jordanian forces held the embassy in lockdown as Amman demanded the guard’s handover, which Israel rejected.

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.
