Lazar Berman is The Times of Israel's diplomatic reporter

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says that Israel is “working closely with Turkish officials to thwart the attempts to strike Israelis and Jews.”

Senior Israeli leaders have sounded a series of warnings since last week that Iran is trying to carry out terror attacks against Israelis in Turkey.

“The operational efforts alongside Turkish security forces have borne fruit,” Bennett says, speaking in his office to Israeli reporters. “Cooperation between Turkey and Israel is tight and is being carried out on all levels.”

Bennett says that Turkish security forces have foiled a number of terror attempts and arrested a number of terrorists in Turkey. He does not include details on the number of attacks or the nationality of the terrorists.

“The goal is to return the situation to normal as quickly as possible,” Bennett says.
