ISTANBUL: Turkey has detained eight people allegedly working for an Iranian intelligence cell planning the killing of Israeli tourists in Istanbul.
The private IHA news agency reported that eight, not all Iranian citizens, were detained last week in raids at three homes in Istanbul’s popular Beyoglu district.
Israel last week urged its citizens to leave Turkey immediately because of “potential” threats from Iranian operatives.
