(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 10, 2017, 11:28 PM (IDT)

US Defense Secretary James Mattis said Monday that the missile strike in response to the Syrian chemical attack on civilians “resulted in the damage or destruction of fuel and ammunition sites, air defense capabilities and 20% of Syria's operational aircraft”. Syria would be “ill-advised ever again to use chemical weapons,” he said. “At this point the use of the Shayrat runway is of idle military interest.”


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.
