Apr 15, 2024

Iran informed Turkey in advance of its planned operation against Israel, which eventually took place on the night of Sunday, 14 April.

Reuters reports this with reference to sources among Turkish officials.

The agency's sources said that the United States, in turn, told Iran through Turkey that any of its actions should be "within certain limits".

"In response, Iran said that the reaction would be in response to Israel's attack on its diplomatic facility in Damascus and that it would not go beyond that," the source said.

A Turkish source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan spoke with his American and Iranian counterparts last week to discuss the planned Iranian operation.


The source added that Ankara had been informed of the possible development.

In addition, according to a Turkish security source, CIA Director William Burns spoke with Turkish Intelligence Chief Ibrahim Kalin and asked him to act as a "mediator" in resolving Israeli-Iranian tensions.

According to the source, they also discussed ceasefire efforts in Gaza.
