Israel has warned its nationals against travelling to India, saying there was a “concrete” threat of terror attacks on Chabad centres and synagogues in the country.

Its Counter-Terrorism Bureau said the threat of attacks has become “significantly more severe” since a stark travel advisory was issued last month.

The CTB said there was a “concrete” threat of attacks on Chabad centres and synagogues throughout India and sites frequented by Israelis and westerners.

Israel’s Channel 10 said the new warning was based on fresh 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 and was planning an attack.
