KUWAIT CITY, Oct 19: The Kuwaiti Embassy in Lebanon called on citizens who are determined to go to Lebanon, to wait because of the demonstrations and unrest in Lebanon.

Citizens in Lebanon must take utmost care and stay away from demonstration areas, the embassy said in a press statement on Friday, urging them to follow security guidelines and contact the embassy on the number 00961071171441, in case of emergency assistance.

Most of Lebanon’s cities and regions are witnessing protests, particularly in Aakkar and Tripoli.

Lebanon’s National News Agency and television footage confirmed that the protesters barricaded major roads with burning tires.

Roads were blocked at the south and in the cities of Sidon, Tyre, Nabatieh, Bint Jbeil, Marjayoun and Hasbaya.

Protests have halted most public and private institutions, warning schools and universities to close and banks to shut down.

Demonstrators condemned the government measures, especially with regard to new taxes and fees. (KUNA)
