Fear of Iranian ‘attacks’; Israel directs its citizens to leave Turkey
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel has ordered its citizens to leave Turkey immediately, fearing a large-scale Israeli targeting of Israeli citizens.
Foreign Minister Yair Lipid has said that according to intelligence reports, a large number of Iranians in Istanbul could target Israeli citizens on holidays.
The Israeli Foreign Minister has said that if a citizen is in Turkey, he should return immediately, no matter how important it is in the current situation, no citizen should travel to Turkey, if a citizen intends to go to Turkey, he should return immediately. But you should cancel your trip.
On the other hand, Iran alleges that there is evidence of Israeli involvement in the assassination of Revolutionary Guards Colonel Syed Khudai, who was killed outside his home in Tehran in recent days.
Israeli Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutolu has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Iran’s intelligence have been made more than once.
It is clear that relations between Iran and Israel have been strained for a long time, with Iran accusing the Zionist state of being constantly involved in the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists and soldiers.
