Turkish intelligence issued a warning to state institutions about a potential attack by Daesh on the Istanbul Ataturk airport and other targets in the city 20 days ago, Hurriyet Daily News reported.
Istanbul's main international airport was hit by deadly suicide bombings on June 28, killing 42 people and injuring 250 others.
Dogan TV's Ankara representative Hande Firat said in a broadcast Wednesday that “Intelligence units sent a warning letter to the top of the state and all its institutions in early June, around 20 days ago, about Istanbul."
Firat added that the names of targeted places was included on the list, and that Istanbul Ataturk Airport was mentioned.
