The security of the Israeli embassy in Delhi was not increased amid a high threat alert, a diplomatic source in Jerusalem said on Saturday, following a report stating the opposite.
Iran International, an anti-regime news site, reported that following a serious threat of an Iranian attack on the Israeli embassy in Delhi, Indian police together with Israeli forces increased security around the embassy.
Roads in the Israeli mission area - which is one of Israel's largest and most important in the world - were closed, and the security detail now includes round-the-clock security and CCTV surveillance in all surrounding streets, according to the news report.
However, an Israel diplomatic source says there is no increased alert in Delhi and that the report sounds like a description of a security drill that took place earlier this year.
The Foreign Ministry said it does not comment on the security of embassies.
The report came over a year after the last attempted attack on the Israeli embassy in India.
Indian police arrested four men last June suspected of being involved in an attempt to bomb the Israeli embassy in India in January 2021.
