Israelis are being warned to leave Turkey “immediately”, according to a new warning issued Friday evening by the Counter-Terrorism Bureau. The warning calls on Israelis staying in Turkey to leave the country immediately, due to concrete information about the intention by terrorists to carry out an attack against Israelis. This is the third travel warning to Turkey issued by the Counter-Terrorism Bureau within that last two weeks, the last one being issued on March 28.

Friday’s advisory warns of “immediate risks” for attacks in Turkey and stresses that the threat “is applicable to all tourist attractions in the country.” “The Bureau requests that Israeli citizens adhere to the warning and avoid going to Turkey,” it said. “At the same time Israeli tourists currently staying in Turkey are requested to refrain from arriving at crowded tourist sites, follow the instructions of local security officials and the media and get out of there as soon as possible.” READ MORE
