Following Saudi Arabia’s decision to order its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately, Kuwait’s Foreign Ministry made a similar announcement.
The Kuwait News Agency quoted the foreign ministry’s statement saying that the move “contributed the step to circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative imapct that might take place.”
The statement also urged citizens to avoid traveling to Lebanon.
A similar decision was made by Bahrain. The country’s foreign ministry added that its citizens were banned from traveling to Lebanon, as well.
This might be another sign of the upcoming conflict between Hezbollah and Israel, which would likely be backed up by the Saudi-led block.
