Israel Issues Warning against Travelling India Citing Concrete Terror Threats

Citing “significantly more severe” terror threat since a stark travel advisory issued last month, Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau (CTB) has warned its citizens against travelling to India.

According to information, the bureau said that there was a “concrete” threat of attacks on Chabad centres and synagogues throughout India, including Goa, as well as on sites frequented by Israelis and Westerners.

Israel’s Channel 10 reported that the fresh warning is grounded on latest intelligence inputs by Israeli officials manifesting that a Global Jihad group had joined hands with with the Pakistani terror cell which carried out the 2008 Mumbai massacre and was planning an attack.

It may be mentioned that a Chabad house was one of the targets of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The CTB strongly urged Israelis in India to keep away from places that are not visibly secured with armed guards.

The bureau also issued a separate advisory against visiting the Kashmir region.

A similar warning issued in September said that a Pakistani terror organisation affiliated with al-Qaida, and responsible for the attacks in Mumbai last November, was planning to carry out a string of attacks throughout the Indian subcontinent.

That warning said while all Westerners in India were in peril of being targeted, Israelis and places where they usually congregate in large numbers were in more serious danger.
