Saudi Arabia Calls On Its Citizens To Quickly Leave Lebanon




Saudi Arabia called on its citizens to quickly leave Lebanese territory and to avoid approaching areas seeing armed conflicts, the Saudi embassy in Lebanon said in a statement posted late on Friday on X, formerly known as Twitter.


The kingdom did not specify which areas in Lebanon it was advising its citizens to avoid.


The Embassy stressed "the importance to the Saudi travel ban to Lebanon", the statement added.



Om Aug.1, the United Kingdom also updated its travel advice for Lebanon, advising against "all but essential travel" to parts of Lebanon's south near the Palestinian camp of Ain el-Hilweh.


At least 13 people, most of them militants, were killed in fighting that broke out in the camp on July 29 between mainstream faction Fath and hardline Islamists, security sources in the camp told Reuters.


Ain el-Hilweh is the largest of 12 Palestinian camps in Lebanon, hosting around 80,000 of up to 250,000 Palestinian refugees countrywide, according to the United Nations' agency for refugees from Palestine.
