In an updated Foreign Ministry advisory, Cypriot nationals are warned to avoid all travel to Lebanon.

In a Travel Advice issued on Sunday, the Ministry said it is closely monitoring the situation in Israel & the occupied Palestinian territories and security incidents taking place in south Lebanon, which could deteriorate throughout the country without prior warning.

Cypriot citizens in Lebanon “are advised to avoid all gatherings and demonstrations, remain vigilant and follow the instructions of local authorities.

“They are also advised to follow closely the developments and information from the international and local media, avoid unnecessary movements and apply maximum security measures”.

Cypriot citizens are also advised to register on the online registration platform for Cypriots abroad Connect2CY.
