JNS.org – Israeli President Reuven Rivlin expressed deep concern over a recent report that the Islamic State terror group is planning an attack on Jewish children in Turkey.

“We are very worried about the information we are receiving, and following the situation closely with the relevant authorities in Israel and Turkey,” Rivlin said in a phone interview with the president of Turkey’s Jewish community, Ishak Ibrahimzadeh.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkey’s government have yet to comment on the report.
