Israel urges its citizens to leave Turkey

Israel called on its citizens to leave Turkey, the Haberturk newspaper reported March 28.

The call came after it became known that the "Islamic State" (IS aka ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh) terrorist group plans terrorist attacks on Israeli and Russian citizens in Turkey, the newspaper reported citing diplomatic sources.

The said plans were revealed following the arrest of 10 IS members in Turkey's Gaziantep province.

Turkey has been facing deadly terrorist attacks in recent weeks.

On March 13, a car bomb attack in Ankara killed 36. Istanbul was also targeted by a suicide attack on March 19 leaving four people dead.

Turkish authorities have accused the IS, PKK and PYD terrorist groups of committing the attacks.
