Iranian attempts to attack Israeli targets in Turkey were foiled by Israeli security forces, KAN News reported on Sunday afternoon.
As per the report, security officials from Israel updated their Turkish counterparts on the intent to carry out an attack against Israelis on Turkish lands and asked for their assistance to foil the attacks.
The attacks were reportedly planned by an Iranian network operating in Turkey.
The Islamic Republic has vowed to exact revenge on Israel, which is reportedly responsible for the assassination of Quds Force militant Col. Hassan Sayad Khodayari in Tehran last month. Khodayari was deputy commander of Quds Force’s Unit 840, the unit responsible for terrorist operations against Israeli and Western targets outside of Iran.
Tehran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) suffered another loss a week later due to the mysterious death of Ali Esmailzadeh, another Quds Force general who reportedly fell from the roof of his house to his death later in May.
