Israel cancels travel advisory for India

Dec 22, 2009

Israel - The Prime Minister's Office Counter Terrorism Bureau on Tuesday canceled the travel advisory for India under which Israelis were recommended to avoid popular tourist spots and not to congregate at Chabad houses.

On Friday, Indian Home Minister Rabvi Navik said that terrorist groups were planning "spectacular violence" in Goa, which was a prime target due to the large presence of tourists from Israel and the United States.

In October, Israel's Counterterrorism Bureau issued a travel advisory regarding India, claiming that the threat against Israelis was "concrete" and recommended that Israelis refrain from congregating in synagogues, Chabad centers and other popular tourist spots.
