It's actually a voiceless pharyngeal fricative :))) .

Well, just looking at the shape of the word, and remembering that [e] and [i]
are allophones, with [e] under stress and in the first post-stress syllable and
[i] otherwise, |desebi| *ought* to be stressed on the first syllable. Now I may
be wrong, I'm doing that from memory...
