BEIRUT: The United Arab Emirates has renewed its travel warning to Lebanon after a deadly car blast targeted the Beirut southern suburbs, the UAE news agency WAM reported.
The Emirate's Foreign Affairs Ministry urged its citizens Thursday to avoid travel to Lebanon because of “the dangers of the regional situation, particularly the situation in Lebanon except in extreme cases.”
The warning included citizens holding diplomatic and regular passports.
The UAE’s travel warning to Lebanon dates back to last year and the country had been renewing its warning given the tense security situation in Lebanon.
The Thursday blast in southern suburb of Beirut was the second of its kind in less than two months and led to the killing of over a dozen people and the wounding of hundreds.
