Report: Mossad warned Turkey against Iranian plan to attack Israeli diplomats
The Turkish Hurriyet quotes a report on NTV news that Israel had sent a letter to Ankara warning against Iranian individuals planning attacks on Israelis on Turkish soil.
The Mossad had warned Turkey that Israeli diplomatic missions in the country could be the target of attacks, the Turkish daily Hurriyet reported on Wednesday.
The Turkish paper quotes a story aired on NTV news, in which it was reported that Israel's main intelligence agency sent a letter to the National Intelligence Agency saying that the "Iranian Revolutionary Guards-Quds Force" is preparing to attack Israelis in Turkey.
According to the report, four individuals have already "entered Turkey from Iran" with weapons and the materials to carry out the alleged attacks on Israeli diplomats.
Israeli diplomats have recently been targeted abroad. The wife of an Israeli diplomat was moderately wounded when a car bomb exploded outside of Israel's embassy in the Indian capital of New Delhi last month. That same day there was also an attempted attack on Israel's embassy in Georgia, but the car bomb was identified in time.
Shortly afterward, in an usual move, the United Nations Security Council unanimously condemned the recent attacks on Israeli representatives and diplomats in India and Georgia.
