Israeli security officials foiled an Iranian attempt to attack Israeli targets in Turkey last month, reports the Kan public broadcaster.

According to the report, Israeli officials appealed to their Turkish counterparts for help in thwarting the attack at some point last month.

Late last month, Israel issued a warning against travel to Turkey amid fears that its citizens would be targeted in a revenge attack for the assassination of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps senior official Hassan Sayyad Khodaei, which has been widely attributed to Israel.
