NEW DELHI: The Indian government has told its citizens not to travel to Israel and Iran amid heightened fears of a potential Iranian retaliation against Israeli targets.

“In view of the prevailing situation in the region, all Indians are advised not to travel to Iran or Israel until further notice. All those who are currently residing in Iran or Israel are requested to get in touch with Indian embassies there and register themselves,“ India’s Ministry of External Affairs said on Friday.
