Turkish media reported earlier that three Israelis and one Iranian were killed in today morning's blast. "We don't have any confirmation that the attack targeted Israelis," Netanyahu told reporters at the Foreign Ministry. He added that tomorrow Israel would update its travel advice for Turkey, which hundreds of thousands of Israelis visit each year.

He had not been in touch with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, he said, but Israel was "in touch with Turkish authorities".

Israeli foreign ministry director general Dore Gold cancelled a trip to the United States to travel to Istanbul tomorrow, the ministry said.

Today, Israel sent two planes to Turkey to bring home citizens wounded in the bombing, the emergency medical service said. "The aim of the operation is to repatriate wounded Israelis as fast as possible," a Magen David Adom spokesperson said.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said at least 11 Israelis were wounded in the attack, including two who were in a grave condition.
