Saudi Arabia was the first to issue a travel warning to Lebanon following the ongoing clashes at Ain el Helwe camp, followed by Kuwait, Bahrain & Qatar. While Saudi Arabia & Bahrain urged their citizens to leave Lebanon quickly, Kuwait & Qatar advised their citizens to avoid places that are witnessing conflict but stopped short of urging their citizens to leave.

Armed clashes between Palestinian factions at Ain el Helwe camp have been ongoing for over a week now despite calls for a ceasefire.
