Iran has already informed Turkey in advance about its planned operation against Israel, as per Reuters citing a Turkish diplomatic source.
The source added that Washington, via Ankara, conveyed to Tehran that any action must stay “within certain limits.” Turkey, while condemning Israel’s campaign in Gaza, expressed its desire to prevent further escalation in the region.
The Turkish source, requesting anonymity, disclosed that Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan had discussions with both US and Iranian counterparts in the past week regarding the planned Iranian operation. Ankara was informed of potential developments, Reuters reported on Sunday.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken emphasized to Fidan earlier this week that escalation in the Middle East was not beneficial for any party.
Iran informed us in advance of what would happen. Possible developments also came up during the meeting with Blinken, and they (the US) conveyed to Iran through us that this reaction must be within certain limits,” the source said.
“In response, Iran said the reaction would be a response to Israel’s attack on its embassy in Damascus and that it would not go beyond this.”
On Saturday night, Iran launched explosive drones and fired missiles, marking its first direct assault on Israeli soil. After the attack, an Israeli military spokesperson said Iran launched more than 300 but 99% of them were intercepted. This attack came in a response to a suspected Israeli strike on its Damascus consulate on April 1, resulting in the death of seven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officers.
Turkey’s foreign ministry later confirmed these communications, urging restraint and warning against regional conflict escalation.
A Turkish security source reported that CIA chief William Burns contacted Ibrahim Kalin, head of Turkey’s MIT intelligence agency, over the Eid al-Fitr holidays, seeking mediation in Israel-Iran tensions. They also discussed ceasefire efforts in Gaza, according to the source, though specifics were not provided, reported Reuters.
