During the observations performed during INTEGRAL monitoring of the Galactic Bulge region (see ATel #438) on 2013 March 11, we detected enhanced emission from the direction of the globular cluster Terzan 6 using the INTEGRAL/JEM-X instrument. This likely indicates that the bursting low-mass X-ray binary GRS 1747-312 is active again (as also reported by the MAXI transient alert on 2013-03-11 12:45:25 UT), although it cannot be fully excluded that another X-ray binary has become active in this cluster.
