Ahead of the Jewish holidays in September, Intelligence agencies have issued a country-wide terror alert. The alert has been conveyed to all police heads in the country for the safety and security of Jewish citizens. It clearly mentioned that Israeli citizens are on the hit list of a terror organisation, reported news agency ANI.

“Jewish holiday to start on September 6 onwards as per intel input terror groups can again target Israeli citizens or Jewish sites which holds religious value,” read the alert. According to an official, they have ordered Delhi Police to be on alert. Security personnel deployed at Israeli sites like the Israeli embassy, consulate staff and residences, Kosher Restaurant, Synagogues Chabad house and Jewish community centre, have been asked to be vigilant.

“We have shared the alert with various police forces across the country. And if required then the security of such establishments will be increased,” added the official. On January 29, a ‘low-intensity bomb’ blast took place near the Israel Embassy in New Delhi.

Last month, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has re-registered the case into the matter.
