Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau (CTB) on Thursday said the threat of possible attacks against Israelis traveling in India has become “significantly more severe” since a stark travel advisory was issued last month.
The bureau said there was a “concrete threat” of attacks on Chabad centers and synagogues throughout India, including Goa, as well as on sites frequented by Israelis and westerners.
On the eve Rosh Hashanah the CTB warned Israelis to refrain from visiting crowded tourist hubs that are not secured by armed guards. Israelis were also advised not to travel to Jammu and Kashmir, India’s northernmost state.
Six Israelis were killed in Mumbai last November when terrorists stormed the Chabad House in the city.
