Israeli Gov Warns Citizens Not To Visit Turkey

By 06/13/2022 3:00 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

On Sunday, Israeli news reports stated that the Israeli government is warning its citizens to avoid Turkey, where an Iranian plot targeting Israelis was foiled last month.

As it stands, the recent plot involved kidnapping Israeli nationals and was reportedly foiled with the cooperation of Israel and Turkish authorities, according to Hebrew-language reports, which cited unnamed security officials. The Iranian cell behind the attempt was part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, and was caught after contacting Israeli tourists.

After this, Israeli officials believe that the threat of another attack remains elevated. Also according to reports, tourist destinations like Istanbul and Antalya have a host of Iranian cells looking to kidnap and kill Israelis.

Israeli media reports suggest that Iran is looking to target Israeli tourists as they remain unable to reach senior Israeli officials. The plots are seen as an attempt to retaliate against assassinations in Iran that have been attributed to Israel, including the killing of a senior IRGC officer Hassan Sayad Khodayari in Tehran last month. After his death, Israel’s National Security Council (NSC) warned nationals against traveling to Turkey due to the threat of Iranian attacks, saying it was “high-risk country.”
