NEW DELHI: Intelligence sources have issued an alert warning that terrorists could target Israeli citizens and their establishments in Delhi and other places in India.

The alert says a group of JeM and unidentified terrorists affiliated with the IS is planning to carry out an attack on Israeli targets in New Delhi and other places in June. The possible target may include the cultural centre of the Israel embassy, synagogues, Jewish School and hotels frequented by Israel nationals in Delhi and other cities, the inputs warn. 

The important Jewish harvest festival of Shavuot is celebrated in June during which Jews frequently visit synagogues and Chabad House. Alleging that it could be a ploy f the Pakistani ‘deep state’, security analyst J K Verma said, “The whole plan could help Pakistan’s ISI in two ways.

Not only will they be able to malign India by carrying out such nefarious activity, but they will be able to hit Israel also which remains on the target of terrorist groups.” In 2012, a biker had attached a sticky bomb to the car of the Israeli defence attache’s wife in New Delhi. During the 26/11 attack also, Israeli establishments were targeted.
