Americans told to leave Lebanon over border skirmish with Israel

The State Department issued a travel advisory Saturday warning Americans to leave Lebanon over concerns along the nation's border with Israel.

The warning came just one day after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah expressed his support of the Hamas terror attacks on Israel.

The warning

“The [State Department] recommends that U.S. citizens in Lebanon leave now while commercial flights remain available due to the unpredictable security situation,” the State Department posted to X.

Americans were also told to have “a plan of action for crisis situations that does not rely on U.S. government assistance. The best time to leave a country is before a crisis, if at all possible. U.S. military-assisted evacuations of civilians from a foreign country are rare. There is no guarantee the U.S. government will evacuate private U.S. citizens and their family members in a crisis situation.”

Time to leave

"U.S. citizens in Lebanon who need emergency assistance should contact the Department of State using this crisis intake form. Family members can also submit a crisis intake form on behalf of a U.S. citizen family member. Please only fill out one form per person, as multiple requests will delay processing," the warning stated, Townhall reported.

"The Department of State reminds citizens to avoid demonstrations and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings or protests as some of these have turned violent," the notice continues.

The UK too

"The UK swiftly followed suit, with the FCDO starkly warning: 'Do not rely on the FCDO being able to evacuate you in an emergency,'" the Daily Mail reported.

"Events in Lebanon are fast moving. The situation has potential to deteriorate quickly and with no warning," it stated.

Hezbollah, a large terrorist group operating in southern Lebanon on Israel's northern border, is supported by Iran and has already fired numerous rockets and conducted drone attacks along the Israeli border.

Israel's military has struck back in destroying drones and rocket launching sites, so far avoiding large-scale ware on a second front.

The complicated northern tensions continue as Israel also continues its attacks against Hamas in Gaza following a war the group launched on Oct. 7, killing over 1,400 Israelis in the process.
