Segundo o Haaretz, os iranianos estariam patrocinando células terroristas para promover ataques a alvos estadunidenses na Turquia, teria informado a inteligencia turca. Difícil é dizer o grau de confiabilidade dessa informação. Seria uma resposta de Teerã ao assassinato do cientista na semana passada?
Sei não, mas se a coisa continuar desse jeito (lembremos que ainda estamos em janeiro), pode ser que 2012 não acabe sem uma guerra no Oriente Médio. Isso não será bom nem para os EUA, nem para Israel e tampouco para o Irã… Não será bom para ninguém…By Avi Issacharoff
Report: Iran planning attacks on U.S. targets in Turkey
According to Turkish Zaman daily, a cell of the Quds Unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is planning to attack U.S. embassy in Ankara.
The Turkish newspaper Zaman reported Tuesday that Turkish intelligence has warned that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is planning attacks on the American embassy and American consulates throughout the country.
According to the report, Turkey’s security forces have warned police in all 81 districts throughout the country, telling them to remain alert and vigilant.
The report states that according to Turkish intelligence, it is likely that a cell of the Quds Unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is planning to break into the U.S. Embassy or one of its consulates. The intelligence further stated that the cell is planning on staying at a five-star hotel in the city in which the attack is being planned, cautioning forces to focus on foreigners residing in those hotels.
Moreover, the report states that Hezbollah may take part in such attacks against Americans.
According to Turkish intelligence, Iran is attempting to support the operations of small, illegal Turkish organizations in the wake of Turkey’s decision to establish a NATO radar within its territory, and due to Ankara’s condemnation of the Assad regime in Syria.
