France warns against travel to Iran, Lebanon, Israel, Palestinian territories in coming days

France has warned its citizens to “imperatively refrain from travel in the coming days to Iran, Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories,” French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne’s entourage tells AFP.

The recommendation comes amid fears that Iran will launch a strike on Israeli targets in a bid to avenge the April 1 airstrike on an Iranian consulate building in the Syrian capital of Damascus.

In a statement on X, the French foreign ministry adds that relatives of Iran-based diplomats will return to France and that French civil servants are now banned from conducting any missions in Iran, Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories.

India has advised its citizens against traveling to Iran and Israel until further notice.
