Hizbullah is "perpetrating to attack Israeli and U.S. targets in Turkey" according to a report in the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot. The newspaper mentioned that the Turkish secret service agency warned that Hizbullah plans to attack Israeli tourists, ships, and planes in addition to Jewish synagogues in Turkey.

Turkish police warned all of its units in Istanbul, Anqara and Izmir, hinting that Hizbullah collected investigatory information in preparation for the attack on Israeli and U.S. institutions and corporations in the three main Turkish cities.

The newspaper noted that the possible aim of the attacks allegedly led by Abbas Hussein Sakr is to avenge for the assassination of Imad Mughnieh who was killed in February 2008.
