The Islamic State terror group is reportedly in the advanced stage of plans to murder Jewish children in Turkey.

According to a report by the United Kingdom’s Sky News, citing intelligence sources, the plot includes attacking Jewish kindergartens, schools and youth centers, with most likely target being Istanbul’s synagogue in Beyoglu. Information on the attack was obtained from six Islamic State operatives who were arrested in the southern city of Gaziantep last week, the report said.

“In light of these circumstances, extraordinary security measures are being taken above and beyond the high alert level already in place by the Turkish police, as well as vigilance within the Jewish community,” an intelligence source told Sky News.

“Undercover and other covert counter-terror measures are being implemented around the clock. This is a more than credible threat. This is an active plot,” the source added.

The latest plot by the Islamic State comes following the terror attack in Istanbul on March 19 that left four people dead, including three Israeli tourists. The Israelis were allegedly followed from their hotel to a restaurant where the Islamic State suicide bomber blew himself up on a street popular with tourists.
