(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, 4:07 PM (IDT)

Responding to a question on whether Tuesday's deadly chemical attack will affect his country's policy in Syria, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that Moscow will continue to support the Syrian military's “anti-terrorism operation”. He repeated the claim by the Russian Defense Ministry earlier in the day that the incident was the result of the Syrian air force bombing a rebel facility where bombs including chemical weapons were being produced. About 150 people were killed and hundreds of others were wounded in the Syrian military's bombardment of the town of Khan Sheikun in northwestern Syria.  

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.
