Terror alert for Israelis in Goa, India

Israelis have been warned not to travel to Goa, India due to specific information about an impending terror attack by al-Qaeda. Goa is a very popular destination with the post-army backpacking set.
Foreign Ministry officials said that the warning applied until the end of December.

Goa, a popular tourist spot in India, is currently home to a significant number of Israeli tourists.

Counter terrorism officials highly recommended that Israeli citizens avoid sites in the Goa region for the "next few weeks." They also said that crowds or attractions popular to Israelis and Westerners should also be avoided.

The Foreign Ministry added that from the legal point of view, Israelis were not forbidden from going to the region, and that they could choose to ignore the warning.

The ministry stressed, however, that such a choice would be highly ill advised.
I wonder how often this type of warning scares off a terror attack.
