Israeli diplomats across the world used taxis or public transport after twin attacks in India and Georgia, a media report said in Tel Aviv.
Israeli institutions have been placed on high alert following the attacks on Israeli personnel in India and Georgia Monday, reported israelnationalnews.com.
Citing a report on Channel 10, it said that Israel's security agencies, including Mossad, have directed all Israeli diplomats not to use their vehicles until these can be inspected.
Officials were being sent home by taxi out of fear that their vehicles may be booby-trapped, the report said.
An Israeli embassy car carrying the wife of a defence attache was targeted in a terror attack in New Delhi while in Georgian capital Tbilisi, police defused a car bombing device attached to a vehicle belonging to a Georgian national working for the Israeli embassy.
