Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On Thursday, Russia issued an advisory against travel to the Middle East, including Israel, Lebanon, and the Palestinian territories. The travel recommendation follows an April 1st airstrike on the Iranian embassy compound in Damascus, which resulted in the death of a top Iranian general and six other military officers. As tensions continue to escalate in the region, Iran has vowed to take revenge for the attack, which Israel has not taken responsibility for.

The advisory from Russia’s foreign ministry urges Russian citizens to avoid travel to the Middle East unless absolutely necessary. The ministry cited the ongoing instability in the region and the high risk of terrorist attacks as reasons for the travel warning. The advisory comes as German airline Lufthansa also announced an extension of its suspension of flights to Tehran.

As tensions between Iran and Israel continue to rise, countries around the world are taking precautions to ensure the safety of their citizens. The advisory from Russia is just one example of the measures being taken to mitigate the risk of violence in the region.
