Jerusalem, Oct. 16 (ANI): Israel has issued a new travel advisory asking its citizens to be wary about travelling to India.

The warning issued by the country's Counter-Terrorism Bureau states that there is a concrete terror threat at places frequented by Israelis, specifically the Chabad houses and synagogues across the country.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the warning comes in the wake of new intelligence received by Israeli officials indicating that a Global Jihad group had teamed up with the Pakistani terror cell responsible for the 2008 Mumbai massacre for a fresh attack.

The Chabad House or Nariman House was one of the targets of the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed.

Israel strongly advised its citizen in India to avoid those places if they aren't secured with armed guards.

The bureau also issued a separate advisory against visiting the Kashmir region in the north of the country.

In September, a similar warning had said that a Pakistani terror organization affiliated with al-Qaida was planning to carry out a string of attacks throughout the Indian subcontinent. (ANI)
