UAE issues advisory for citizens in Lebanon


The UAE Embassy in Beirut has urged Emiratis to stay clear of locations hit by the wildfires in Lebanon.

They have also been asked to act with caution while visiting mountainous areas, and to contact the embassy in case of emergency.

The advice comes as authorities struggle to control the fires that have been spreading quickly due to strong winds and high temperatures.
