(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 12, 2017, 11:05 AM (IDT)

Turkey's Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu announced Wednesday that the explosion that killed three people and destroyed the northern part of the police compound in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir the previous day was a terrorist attack. Soylu said the terrorists had dug a tunnel below the compound's parking lot, filled it with explosives and then detonated them. The compound includes a police academy and the headquarters of a unit for dispersing demonstrations. 

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.
