Israel Warns Citizens Against Travel to Turkey Over Iranian Retaliation Threat

Israel on Monday warned its citizens against travel to Turkey and other neighboring countries of Iran over to fears of retaliation against Israeli targets for the alleged killing a senior Revolution Guard Corps member.

Iran vowed revenge over the killing of Colonel Hassan Sayad Khoadi, who was gunned down last week in Tehran after two gunmen on motorbike opened fire at his car outside his home.  The government of Iran accused the US and its alliance, including Israel, for Khodadi’s killing.

“For several weeks now, there is increasing concern in the security establishment regarding Iranian efforts to attack Israeli targets around the world,” Israel National Security Council said in a statement.

Israel also warned its citizens against traveling to the neighboring countries of Iran, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan due to heightened security threat.

Turkey is a popular tourist destination for Iranian and Israelis alike, and Turkey has been making efforts to mend ties with Israel after over decade of stranded in relations.
