Kuwait, Qatar urge citizens to avoid Lebanon

Kuwait and Qatar on Wednesday became the latest Arab countries to follow in Saudi Arabia’s footsteps by urging their citizens already in Lebanon to leave and issuing a travel warning for nationals planning to visit there.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain – all member-states of the tight-knit Gulf Cooperation Council – have called for their citizens to avoid travel to Lebanon. The Kuwait News Agency, which carried the travel advisory by Kuwait’s Embassy in Lebanon, gave no details on the nature of the security threat. Qatar’s Foreign Ministry issued a similar advisory later Wednesday, published on state-run news agency.
