An Israeli woman died Tuesday morning in India, apparently from a serious allergic reaction to milk, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The woman, a resident of northern Israel, was visiting the Dharamshala region of India near Nepal.
Israel’s consul in Dehli, Eli Sneh, and the Foreign Ministry’s department for Israelis abroad are assisting efforts to bring the deceased back to Israel for burial, the ministry said, without identifying the woman.
India and neighboring Nepal are popular destinations for Israelis, particularly those who have just completed their compulsory military service.
In June, an Israeli woman was killed and four other Israelis injured in a road accident on a remote mountainside in India.
Last week a 25-year-old Israeli man was killed and his wife lightly injured after being hit by a car while honeymooning in Thailand.
