Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held an emergency cabinet meeting and press conference on Saturday after a suicide bomber killed three Israelis and wounded another 11 in Istanbul.

The terrorist is believed to have been an ISIS operative.

Israel is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the attack, in coordination with Turkish authorities, but Netanyahu said that at present there is no evidence that Israelis were specifically targeted.

Israeli military and rescue teams were dispatched to Istanbul to bring home the deceased and some of the wounded Israelis, several of whom remain in serious condition.

Among the deceased were two Israeli-American citizens.
