After revealing “a series of Iranian terrorist attacks against Israelis on vacation in Istanbul”, the Foreign Minister of IsraelYair Lapid has made a dramatic and unusual public appeal to its citizens: “Do not travel to Istanbul and do not travel to Turkey at all unless you have an urgent need. If you are already in Istanbul, return to Israel as soon as possible,
“Terrorist attacks have targeted Israelis who went on vacation. They have deliberately chosen to kidnap or kill Israeli civilians. It can happen to anyone. This is a real and immediate threat,” Lapid said on Monday. The Anti-Terrorist Fighting Commission had warned some time ago. Israel’s National Security Council will raise the travel warning for Istanbul to the highest risk level of 4.
As such, Israel’s fear of imminent attacks by the Revolutionary Guard in response to the death of several high-ranking officials in Iran last month in actions attributed to the Mossad has been made official and public. A few hours before Lapid’s intervention, Israeli media reported Several Iranians arrested on suspicion of trying to kidnap Israeli tourists Turkey last month.
“Turkey and Israel cooperate to prevent Iranian terrorists from attacking Israel. The threat is immediate, so we ask them to leave Istanbul,” security sources told EL Mundo after last year.

Despite the economic implications, Turkish officials understood Lapid’s appeal, which they were informed of in advance according to Israeli sources. Bilateral diplomatic relations have improved significantly after a decade of great tensions and bilateral confrontations between the Israeli leadership and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, especially around the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Something that contributes, although it is not the main reason, to Istanbul being the fifth most popular destination among Israeli tourists today.
Lapid’s request comes as demand to travel abroad after two years under the coronavirus has skyrocketed. “We hope and believe that this warning will not be long-term. This is the tourist season, and in the short term everything will be done to provide security that will allow the Israelis to return to Turkey and enjoy all that it has.” are. offer.” offer”, Lapid told the Knesset before concluding: “I also want to send a message to the Iranians: Whoever hurts the Israelites will pay, We will find them, wherever they are.”

Two motorists leaving Coronal Hasan Sayed Jodai In Tehran on 23 May. According to Israel, Jodai was number two in 840, a secret unit of the Revolutionary Guard dedicated to carrying out attacks specifically against Israel. His assassination would be a warning message from Mossad to Iran to end its plan to attack Israel.
The second exception is to deny any connection between Israel and the mysterious death of Colonel Ali Ismailzadeh, who fell – or was thrown – from the balcony of his home in Iran on May 30. According to the media in opposition to the Iranian regime, he was assassinated by the Revolutionary Guard, the ‘Iran International’, on the suspicion that he had cooperated with a plan to end Jodai’s life.
In mid-February, Iran sent two explosives-carrying drones against targets in Israel, but they were intercepted by US fighters in Iraq. It was another reaction by Iran to various acts of sabotage by Mossad against its nuclear plan and several Israeli airstrikes against its militias in Syria that were less and less covert.
