Jerusalem, 14 November, 2022 (TPS) — Israel’s National Security Council warned citizens against non-essential travel to Turkey after a blast in Istanbul killed six people and injured another 81.

The warning also advised Israelis currently in Istanbul to stay in their hotels and to follow the instructions of Turkish security officials.

Turkish security forces have arrested one suspect for the bombing on Istanbul’s ?stiklal Avenue, a popular pedestrian shopping mall known for its restaurants, art galleries, and shops. Officials suspect the bombing was carried out by Kurdish separatists.

An image from surveillance cameras showed a woman suspected of planting the bomb walking near two Israeli tourists, Natalie Suissa and Or Atdegi, both from Ashdod.

The travel advisory calls on Israelis in Turkey to notify relatives of their whereabouts, avoid demonstrations and other areas of unrest, not to enter unidentified vehicles, and to conceal their Israeli identity.
