In light of terrorist threats by Al-Qaida in India, a concrete threat now exists specifically for the Indian State of Goa, which hosts many tourists, among them Israelis, during late December and over the civil New Year.  Those traveling to Goa in the next few weeks will be under serious threat of Al-Qaida terrorist attacks.

The National Security Council Counter Terrorism HQ recommends that Israeli citizens avoid – as much as possible – staying at sites in Goa State during the upcoming weeks.
