DEBKAfile Exclusive Report November 26, 2015

IDF has a plan to stem Palestinian terror. Netanyahu & Ya’alon: It will die down
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report November 23, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon have been at loggerheads with Israel’s military and Shin Bet chiefs on how to grapple with the wave of Palestinian terror sweeping the country for more than two months, with knife, firebomb and vehicular attacks. The two ministers are convinced that the Palestinian terrorists will eventually succumb to attrition and throw in the sponge. Disputing this premise, Israel’s military and intelligence chiefs have put forward a 7-point plan of action for a crackdown hinging on a total lockdown of Palestinian areas:

Shortly before the Obama-Netanyahu summit, ISIS hit Americans in Jordan
DEBKAfile Special Report November 9, 2015

ISIS carried out a terrorist attack in Jordan on Monday, Nov. 9, just hours before Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama met for talks at the White House in Washington. Since the two leaders concur on the rising threat posed by ISIS, it can be assumed that a significant portion of their meeting centered on the news of the attack in Jordan, in which two American trainers, a South African and two Jordanians were killed - and its implications.

No good news in the Mid East for Obama or Netanyahu when they meet Monday
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis November 8, 2015

Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu meets President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday, Nov. 9, after four grave setbacks: Deepenng Russian and Iranian military intervention in Syria inching up to Israel’s borders; Bashar Assad’s survival against all predictions; the strengthening of the Islamic State; and a deadly Palestinian terror campaign pervading the country. Even if they agree on Israel’s security needs in the coming years and the scale of US military aid, Middle East volatility may quickly obviate all forecasts.

Israel Is on Its Own against Palestinian Terror

Netanyahu’s Temple Mount boomerang: The Palestinian knife strikes in Tel Aviv too
DEBKAfile Special Report October 8, 2015

Binyamin Netanyahu and Moshe Ya’alon seemed to believe that an order to Jewish cabinet ministers and Knesset members Thursday, Oct. 8, to stop visiting Temple Mount would be the winning step for de-escalating the current Palestinian rock-throwing, firebomb and stabbing rampage. They were wrong. No sooner was the order released than it became a boomerang. Israeli Arab lawmakers announced that they would visit Temple Mount and Al Aqsa regardless. And two stabbing attacks followed in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu curtails German trip to deal with worsening Palestinian terror crisis
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis October 7, 2015

After the Israeli cabinet launched measures Tuesday, Oct. 6, for “strengthening anti-terror defense” – such as cameras in the sky - and officials labored to spread word that the surge of Palestinian violence of the past week was beginning to ebb, Israel was hit that night from the offside by a vicious pro-Palestinian upheaval in the Tel Aviv suburb of Jaffa. This was part of the backlash for Netanyahu’s “calm and responsible” approach to Palestinian terror, which mutinous ministers are calling “soft” and which Palestinians regard as Israeli weakness.

The launching Thursday, Sept. 24, of joint offensive operations by Russian marines and Hizballah special forces on the ISIS-held Kweiris air base – revealed here by debkafile - runs counter to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assurances to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu just three days earlier that Russian marines in Syria would not fight with Hizballah.

Why Israel prefers a hot line to a military coordination center with Russia
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 22, 2015

The headlines claiming that the Russian and Israeli armies have agreed to establish a coordination center for their operations in Syria, run way past Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s disclosure, after his talks with President Vladimir Putin Monday, Sept. 21: He spoke of agreement on “a mechanism to prevent misunderstandings and clashes.” The gap reflects the absence of tangible plans for real coordination between the continuously-ramped up Russian forces in Syria and the IDF, because neither army means to level with the other in advance of its operations.

Vladimir Putin deepens Russian stake in Syria
Netanyahu, Putin to discuss continued Israeli air force freedom of action over Syria
DEBKAfile Special Report September 16, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will discuss with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Sept. 21 the continued Israeli Air Force freedom of action against threats coming from Syria. This would necessitate coordination between the Russian and Israeli air commands to avoid accidental collisions between their warplanes. A deal on these lines, tacitly agreed between Washington and Moscow, enables US air strikes against ISIS. But Israel faces more complex threats derving from the Iranian and Hizballah presence in Syria, on which Putin may dig in his heels.

Palestinians launch new confrontation tactic of “localized” terror against Israel
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 15, 2015

Three dates are landmarks of a new outbreak of armed Palestinian terror against Israel: On Aug. 30, an army-police squad rounding up terrorist suspects was waylaid in the Jenin refugee camp by fierce gangs armed with rocks, iron bars and firebombs. On Sept. 13, an Israeli car was stoned in Jerusalem, killing the driver Alexander Levlovitch, 64. The next day, Palestinian gangs fought Israeli police guards on Temple Mount with rocks, blocks of concrete and iron bars. Since Israeli troops were told to fire in the air opposite Palestinian violence, terror has escalated sharply, undeterred by legal measures.
