“Israel will respond to any Iranian attack on its citizens in anywhere in the world. “With this sentence, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz put it in guard Iran from trying to target Israelis in Turkey.
He renewed the warning that Iranian cells are trying to carry out an imminent attack to kill or kidnap Israelis in visit to Istanbul for tourism.
He also called in a tweet on his Twitter account last night, Saturday, “all Israelis in Turkey to obey the instructions of the security forces “.
“Stay in hotel “
Gantz’s stance came after the Israeli National Security Council called on Israeli tourists to leave Turkey immediately, noting that those who are not in able to do so should refrain from moving as much as possible, stay in hotel and hide any Israeli or Hebrew symbols.
Meanwhile, a senior Israeli security official revealed the presence of Iranian cells wandering within Turkish territory, led by the head of the Revolutionary Guards intelligence services, trying to target Israelis.
About 2,000 Israelis are still there in Turkey today, in drop from 5,000 at the beginning of the week, before the discovery of those cells.
Interestingly, these developments came after Iran had repeatedly warned in recent days that it would inevitably respond to Israel’s “recent assassinations on Iranian soil, especially after the killing of Revolutionary Guards colonel, Hassan Sayyad Khudaei, in gunshots near his home, east of Tehran, on 22 May.
