BEIRUT: Kuwait asked its citizens Saturday to leave Lebanon for their own safety following two car bombs that targeted mosques in the northern city of Tripoli.
“Due to the state of security and instability which killed and injured many people, the Embassy of the State of Kuwait in Lebanon urges Kuwaiti citizens in Lebanon to leave the country for their own safety,” the embassy said in a statement, according to the state-run Kuna news agency.
It also urged citizens to contact the embassy if they need assistance.
The embassy hoped security and stability would soon improve in Lebanon.
Twin car bombs ripped through two mosques in Tripoli Friday, killing at least 45 people and wounding over 500.
The deadly attack came days after a car bomb exploded in Beirut’s southern suburbs, leaving 30 people dead.
