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 11, 2017, 9:40 AM (IDT)

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the Syrian army’s 5th Corps units and Hizballah elite brigades Sunday began taking over the Jordanian frontier, including sections close to the Syrian border with Israel. Neither the Jordanian army nor the IDF intervened. Seeing the rebel groups of southeastern and western Syria crumbling, Assad’s army and Hizballah marched in. Our sources say the Syrian Free Army (FSA), backed by the US, Israel and Jordan, is disbanding, some of its members crossing the lines to join up with the Syrian army in the Syrian-Jordanian-Iraqi border triangle. The rebel forces which held the line near the Israeli border, in such places as Quneitra, are now cut off and expected to disperse before long.

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.
