State Department warns US citizens not to travel to Lebanon amid fear of 2nd front opening in Israel-Hamas war

The State Department has raised the travel advisory for Lebanon, urging U.S. citizens not to travel to the country “due to the unpredictable security situation related to rocket, missile, and artillery exchanges between Israel and Hizballah or other armed militant factions.”

The advisory issued on Tuesday also urged people to reconsider travel to Lebanon “due to terrorism, civil unrest, armed conflict, crime, kidnapping” and the U.S. Embassy in Beirut’s “limited capacity to provide support to U.S. citizens.” The State Department authorized the voluntary, temporary departure of family members of U.S. government personnel and some non-emergency personnel from the U.S. Embassy
