The murder weapon, Alberto Nisman's borrowed Bersa .22
A fake Iranian “defector” assassinated Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report February 19, 2015

A special debkafile investigation has discovered that the Argentine-Jewish prosecutor Natalio Alberto Nisman, 51, was murdered on Jan. 18 by an Iranian agent posing as a defector calling himself “Abbas Haqiqat-Ju.” The killer struck hours before Nisman showed the Argentine parliament evidence of a cover-up by President Cristina Kirchner of Iran’s complicity in the country’s worst terrorist attack, the 1994 bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish community center, in which 85 people died, two years after 29 people were killed by a blast at the Israeli embassy. Nisman’s evidence ultimately proved Iran's culpability in the two terrorist attacks.

Obama and Khamenei still at odds
Information about the US-Iranian nuclear dialogue is no longer “sensitive.” For Obama it’s a done deal
DEBKAfile Special Report February 17, 2015

Accusing Binyamin Netanyahu of leaking “sensitive” information on US nuclear negotiations with Iran skews the fact of an almost done deal between US President Barack Obama and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. It wants only Iran’s paramount leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei endorsement. In attempting to bring him round, Washington is using media spin tactics which Netanyahu’s opponents have seized on to accuse him of sabotaging relations with Washington. Netanyahu is not alone in objecting to Obama’s Iran policy. So too do the Saudis, some Gulf emirates and Egypt.

French police house-to-house search
Kouachi brothers die in suicidal attack on French siege force. Four hostages killed in Jewish Paris mini-market
DEBKAfile Special Report January 9, 2015

Four hostages held by Islamist gunmen at a Jewish grocery store in Paris were reported dead Friday, Jan. 9 by French police, shortly after a rescue operation that killed the gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, who earlier shot dead a policewoman. Other captives were set free. Minutes before, Said and Cherif Kouachi died in a shooting attack on the police siege force at a factory near Dammartin-en-Goelle, 40 km northeast of Paris. The two Charlie Hebdo killers were holed up there threatening to “die as martyrs” with their hostage before going on the offensive.

Components of a listening device found in Lebanon
Iranian specialists failed to capture a sophisticated anti-Hizballah spying device which self-destructed
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report September 7, 2014

Hizballah's sophisticated hi-tech optical fiber communications network links its command centers, units, rocket launchers, senior officials’ homes and intelligence branches. Those communications are also ciphered and hard to intercept and decode. Planting an eavesdropping device sophisticated enough to interface with this network is risky and calls for high technological resources and expertise. Iranian experts, determined to hunt down and dissect one such spying device were thwarted Friday, Sept. 5, when their prize self-destructed and killed a Hizballah operative.

US-Iranian military, intelligence cooperation in war on ISIS reaps first successes in Syria and Iraq
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report September 5, 2014

At least 18 foreign ISIS fighters, including Americans and Europeans, were killed in a Syrian air raid Thursday, Sept. 4, over their Raqqa HQ. A second Syrian air raid killed or injured another group of high ISIS officers at Abu Kamal near the Iraqi border. A day earlier, US jets struck an IS base in the northern Iraqi town of Tal Afar, killing its commander, Abu Hajar Al-Sufi,  and two top lieutenants of ISIS chief Abu Baker Al-Baghdadi. All these actions owed their success to deepening US-Iranian military and intelligence cooperation. Is this Obama's unadmitted strategy?

The ruins of Rafah commercial center in Gaza
Though militarily inferior, Hamas has hit Israel strategically with attrition and population flight
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis August 24, 2014

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Sunday, Aug. 24 that Operation Defensive Edge would end “only when quiet returns to southern Israel. Till then, we shall continue to hammer Hamas - for now by air.” debkafile:
This approach leaves Hamas with the initiative and advantage of surprise against the IDF. And so, despite its inferiority in numbers and weapon, the Palestinian Islamists have scored two strategic goals: Israel is dragged willy-nilly into a war of attrition, and its southern communities have emptied out of 70 percent of their dwellers.

Israel’s Focus on Tactical Intel Leaves Hamas with the Strategic Intel Edge in Gaza Conflict
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report August 14, 2014

A Mossad overhaul has left Israel’s intelligence focused on tactical intelligence, leaving current leaders without the strategic point of view they need to conquer Hamas in Gaza.

IDF set for electronic and signals control of Hamas, Islamic Jihad command centers, after rocket fire
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 26, 2014

Before it ended with Hamas rocket fire Saturday night, July 26, the 12-hour Israel-Hamas ceasefire offered Israeli intelligence a rare opportunity for collecting enemy data.  In the heat of battle, the IDF and its clandestine arms were unable to gain electronic and SIGINT access to the underground Hamas and Islamic Jihad command and control centers, which appear to be well equipped with complex tactical and encrypted communications systems. Now they must go for Hamas’ sophisticated intelligence production processing system, elements of which may have broken surface during the ceasefire.

A Hamas terror tunnel unearthed in Gaza
How Human Intelligence (HUMINT) works for Israel’s Gaza operation – its crucial eyes on the ground
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 19, 2014

The outcome of Israel’s Gaza operation may be determined just as much by its unseen battle as by hammering Hamas infrastructure and destroying more than a dozen Hamas terrorist tunnels and infrastructure by Saturday morning, July 19, the 12th day of its fight against Hamas. This battle can’t be fought just with sophisticated high-tech gadgetry. Only “boots on the ground” can provide eyes and ears among the local populace, and the cover for agents trained to operate in an Arab environment to gather the information needed for charting the IDF's moves.

Reliance on Air Power and Hasty Ceasefire Fails to Shorten Gaza Conflict
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 17, 2014

Netanyahu is relying on only two advisors to wage the war on Hamas in Gaza, and his over-reliance on air strikes and hopes for a quick ceasefire have proved this to be unwise.

Hamas launches M-75 missiles
The hidden intelligence agendas behind Hamas’ 1,000-rocket barrage and Israel’s 1,500 air strikes
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 14, 2014

As Israel’s Operation Defensive Edge ended its first week on July 14, military and intelligence experts were finding it hard to believe that Hamas had fired 1,000 rockets against Israel at random. They now conclude that Hamas was collecting operational data for itself, Iran and Hizballah to use in future conflicts – both about the weak points of Iron Dome and for guidance systems to lend their future rockets and mortars greater accuracy. Those experts advise Israel to send a small undercover special force into Gaza for intelligence missions to tip the scales in its favor.

New Stuxnet revelations rattle the intelligence community
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly June 12, 2014

Maj. Gen. (res.) Professor Yitzhak Ben-Yisrael, a retired senior developer of combat measures for the Israeli defense establishment, was the first military official to name the exact targets chosen for the Stuxnet attack, which ravaged Iran’s nuclear program in the years 2009-2010.

Brussels Jewish Museum attack
Thousands of al Qaeda terrorists are on the loose in US and Europe – under the radar of Western intelligence
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly June 3, 2014

When French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said, ”We’ve never faced a challenge on this scale,” he was referring to around 11,000 Islamist terrorists on a constant commute between the Middle East, North America and Europe primed for lethal action. Never has the West seen the likes of a terrorist army on this scale – even when Osama bin Laden was recruiting - as the latest DEBKA Weekly out Friday showed with facts and figures. And never has Western intelligence had less control of a peripatetic mass of homegrown malefactors.
