(https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/world/israel-embassy-in-delhi-on-high-alert-amid-serious-fear-of-iran-attack/ar-AAX1vAT)This comes more than a year after a low-intensity IED blast outside the Israeli Embassy in Lutyens’ Delhi in January 2021. Soon after the blast, the entire area around the Israeli embassy was cordoned-off with heavy deployment of police and central paramilitary forces. The date of the blast (January 29, 2021) coincided with the completion of 29 years of diplomatic ties between India and Israel.

The intel had warned that terror groups can carry out attacks like the Israel embassy blast in Delhi in January 2021.
