‘Iranian Terror Cell Planning Attacks on Jewish, Israeli Targets in Turkey’
Intelligence agencies are searching for members of Unit 400, a secret Iranian special-ops division of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, which has been ordered to attack Jewish, Israeli and Western targets in Turkey, Sky News reported on Sunday.
Intelligence sources told Sky News that in recent months Unit 400 has been developing “a standing operating procedure for carrying out an attack in Turkey against Western targets as well as Israeli and Jewish [ones].” The source added that intelligence assessments have shown “these procedures are in a very advanced stage, and that the intention is to act on the plans very soon.”
The sources also told Sky News that in the wake of growing threats of possible military action against Iran’s nuclear program, Unit 400 has been instructed to carry out “more frequent and more daring terror attacks around the world as a demonstration of ‘Iran’s asymmetric power.'”
