Israel said due to ‘sharpen’ travel warnings over fears of Iranian revenge attack

Israel is set to “sharpen” its travel warnings for several countries close to Iran over fears the Islamic Republic could seek revenge for the assassination of a senior IRGC officer in Tehran, Channel 12 news reports.

According to the unsourced report, the heightened travel warnings will apply to Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The network says Israel fears that a New York Times report on Israel’s ostensible acknowledgment of responsibility for killing Col. Sayyad Khodaei could “raise Iran’s motivation” to target Israelis.

It also reports there were “lots of phone calls” today between Israel and the US over the leak, and the two sides have now “put the incident behind them.”
