As others have mentioned you should be going to Europe we have a POP in
Rosh Hayain, IL and in Nicosia, CY. Both POP's backup to AWS Ireland.
Almost all of your traffic in IL is going to go through Western Europe so
it makes no sense to send it to India. Israel does not have any peering
with its neighbors.
I just did some tests from Bezeq in Petah Tiqwa

It seems like you're better off going to the US over going to Mumbai!
