Indian intelligence officials have learned that Al-Qaida elements and other fanatic groups may be planning to commit terrorist attacks against Israeli and Jewish targets in advance of the anticipated influx of tourists during the upcoming holiday season, according to news reports.

India has traditionally been a popular destination for Israeli hikers and backpackers, particularly during the Jewish holiday season. Israelis are known to congregate in the dozens of Chabad-operated community centers in the country, where they celebrate the holidays and observe religious customs.

Last week, Indian authorities learned that Al-Qaida operatives have established sleeper cells throughout the country. According to reports, intelligence services believe that the organization is planning attacks, with Israeli and Jewish institutions high on the list of at-risk targets.
