A message posted on a number of militant Islamist Internet forums Tuesday included information on what the author claimed were the locations of a number of nuclear sites in several countries and urged militants to try and target such sites in any way they can.

The author also provided maps showing the location of nuclear targets such as nuclear power plants, strategic weapons storage facilities and nuclear reactors. He included maps of the U.S., the U.K., Pakistan, Israel, Belarus, France, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Turkey and Ukraine. The author also mentioned a shipbuilding company based in Haifa called Israel Shipyard Ltd. , which he said exports vessels to India, as a possible target.
