The Israeli National Security Council's counterterrorism bureau has warned its citizens not to travel to Turkey in the coming days.
Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post reported the counterterrorism bureau as saying terrorists are planning to attack "Israelis/Jewish targets in Turkey in the coming days." Israeli citizens, the bureau continued, should refrain from traveling to Turkey.
Less than a week ago the Turkish daily Hurriyet reported that Israel's intelligence agency Mossad had issued a warning that Israel's diplomatic missions in Turkey could be in danger of an attack by Iran.
The Jerusalem Post also made reference to “alleged Iranian plots to attack Israeli targets thwarted in Georgia, Azerbaijan and Thailand” as well as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's recent accusation that Israel has committed genocide.
Yedioth Ahronoth of the Anti-Terrorism Bureau was reported as warning citizens that “Iran is behind the attacks against Israelis and Jews.”
