The Israel Internet News Agency (INA) was created by Joel Leyden in 1995 to provide accurate and timely on-line news from Israel in times of crisis. The Israel News Agency disseminates direct news feeds from the Israel Government Press Office, Prime Minister’s Office, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israel Ministry of Defense, the Israel Defense Forces, the Israel Ministry of Trade and the Israel Ministry of Tourism to a global audience. The Israel News Agency (INA) in addition to reporting general news, features and editorials from Israel was responsible for reporting and creating Web sites from the assassination of Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the IDF Shear Yishuv disaster to almost every terrorist attack against Israel’s civilian population since 1995. In doing so, the Israel News Agency was able to provide information to the global public that was only available in Israel. Our links have been used by the Israel Ministry for Foreign Affairs, CNN, Associated Press, USA Today, Reuters, Washington Post, Jerusalem Post, Yediot, Maariv and thousands of other on-line, broadcast and print news media outlets.
