US State Department warns employees against travel near Lebanon border

The State Department has urged all of its employees to avoid travel to areas adjacent to Israel’s border with Lebanon due to the possibility of Hezbollah reprisals.

An official US government communique instructs its personnel to “obtain advance approval if they wish to travel within 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) of the Lebanon border, or travel on or east of Route 98 in the Golan Heights.”

The American government has also barred its employees from riding the bus in light of Wednesday’s stabbing attack in Tel Aviv.
