The National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau (NSCCTB) issued a severe travel warning to Israelis in Turkey, and urged Israelis to keep from travellin there..

"In response to the events surrounding the protest flotilla, there are growing protests by the government and public in Turkey.  This delicate state of affairs is liable to deteriorate into violent outbreaks against Israelis in Turkey," the warning said.

"Israelis due to leave for Turkey should – at this stage – refrain from travelling until the situation becomes clear.

"Israelis currently in Turkey should remain in their places of residence, avoid city centers and sites in which demonstrations are being held, and monitor developments out of concern that the situation could worsen."
