Israelis warned against travel to India


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau warned its citizens against traveling to India due to a concrete threat of a terror attack.

The alert warns that the terror group identified as carrying out the terror attack in Mumbai last November is planning new attacks in India that will target tourists and Chabad houses and synagogues. Six Jews, including Chabad emissaries Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg,  were killed in the attack on the Chabad house there.

The warning follows a similar alert issued before Rosh Hashanah saying that Jews and Israelis could be targeted at Chabad houses and synagogues throughout the country.
