Israelis warned of imminent attack in Turkey


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israelis have been warned against traveling to Turkey in light of intelligence that terrorists are planning an attack against Israelis or Jewish targets in the coming days.

Israel’s Counter Terrorism Bureau issued the warning Tuesday. According to reports, Iran has sent terrorists into Turkey to carry out the planned attack.

The warning also came after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of committing a "massacre" and "genocide attempt" in Gaza, referring to the recent violence.

Last month, the wife of an Israeli diplomat in India was injured when a car bomb blew up the embassy car in which she was riding. Another bomb attached to a car in Tbilisi, Georgia, was discovered before it went off.
