DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. September 13, 2017, 9:44 AM (IDT)

Israel’s ultra-orthodox parties announced Wednesday morning they will hold an emergency meeting at 2pm to discuss their response to the Supreme Court’s rulng the previous day regarding the mass exemption of yeshiva youths from compulsory service in the IDF. The court said the exemption is discriminatory and unconstitutional, sparking outrage in the Haredi (ultra-religious) community. Interior Minister Arye Deri, head of the Shas party, claimed the ruling shows a major disconnect between the court and the Jewish people.  

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.
