US urges citizens to avoid travel to Lebanon amid border tension with Israel

The United States, Russia and Ireland were the latest countries to recommend against travel to Lebanon on Thursday amid fears of a possible war between Israel and the Lebanese group Hezbollah.

In a statement, the US Embassy in Beirut asked its nationals to strongly reconsider travel to Lebanon, and for those in the country to take precautionary measures, including avoiding travel to southern Lebanon and the border areas with Syria.

The embassy said the Lebanese government can’t guarantee the protection of US citizens against sudden outbreaks of violence and armed conflict.

The Russian Embassy in Beirut also recommended its citizens in Lebanon to refrain from traveling to the Arab country.
