According to the UAE official agency WAM, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a written statement regarding the aforementioned warning.
In the statement, it was stated that it is important to comply with the previously decided travel ban to Lebanon in terms of ensuring the safety of UAE citizens.
It was not disclosed when the travel ban was issued, and the reason for such a decision was not shared.
On 4 August, Saudi Arabia called on its citizens to “leave Lebanese territory as soon as possible” and warned them to stay away from areas of armed conflict.
Kuwait and Germany also called on their citizens in Lebanon to “be careful, stay away from places of security problems and conflict zones” on 5 August.
Following the countries in question, Bahrain asked its citizens not to travel to Lebanon for their own safety, and for those in that country to return.
Clashes in Ayn al-Halva
In the clashes between Palestinian groups, including the Fatah Movement, since July 29, in the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, Ayn al-Halva, 12 people were killed and more than 60 injured.
With the mediation of the Lebanese parties, it was announced on 31 July that a ceasefire was reached between the Palestinian groups in the camp. However, due to occasional conflicts between the parties, a full stability environment has not been achieved yet.
After some countries warned for security reasons, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced yesterday that the general security situation of the country was not in a state of concern.
