(Before It's News)

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. April 5, 2017, 12:15 PM (IDT)

It was revealed on Wednesday that a 23-year-old Palestinian was indicted March 30 on charges of planning to carry out terrorist attacks in Israel. According to the indictment, he was recruited by the Hamas command in Northern Cyprus where he lived for the past few years. He was said to have admitted under questioning that in January 2016 he was sent to a military camp in Syria where he underwent various types of training including how to build explosive devices. In January 2017, shortly before returning to the West Bank, he met in Istanbul with Hamas activists who instructed him to recruit new members in Israeli territory. Following his arrest, the terror suspect handed over encrypted memory cards that he received from his handlers in Turkey. The cards were later found to contain a large amount of instructions and data intended to help him carry out attacks. The Palestinian was arrested on February 26 after the IDF received precise intelligence from the Shin Bet domestic security service.   

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.
