Hariri Says Gulf States May Lift Lebanon Travel Ban

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Gulf states may soon lift the travel bans they had imposed on Lebanon in recent years, Prime Minister Saad Hariri has announced.

“Gulf states are mulling re-allowing their citizens to visit Lebanon,” Hariri revealed.

“This would reflect positively on the tourism sector and on the economy in general,” the prime minister added.

Hariri was in Saudi Arabia last week.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait had in November warned their citizens against travel to Lebanon, amid a Lebanese-Saudi crisis sparked by Hariri's controversial resignation from Riyadh which he has since rescinded.

Saudi Arabia said at the time that it considers Hizbullah's participation in the Lebanese government an "act of war" against the kingdom.

Several Lebanon travel warnings have been issued by the Gulf states in recent years amid political tensions and security fears.

The only people he can deceive are the newcomers. We know he's also known as tric or blablabla. cookies don't lie.

The Shia in Lebanon come from the Arabian peninsula, more precisely Arabs. The Hariris come from Deraa in Syria. Jumblatt is a Kurd. What's your name? You're probably a pure Arabian product.

yes really, the Jabal Amil people came shortly before the first crusaders. They belong to the Banu Amila tribe from Yemen.... yes, Shias in Lebanon are Yemenites.... pure Arabs. And frankly, knowing this I thank God everyday I wasn't born mitwelian. You people must have done some really evil and unforgivable things for God to punish you this way :)
Oh wait, the very same Banu Amila primitive tribesmen are still murdering innocent women and children in Syria today, comparing it to a hollywood production... I guess you'll keep reincarnating as mites until you stop doing Satan's deed.

he is an old account. Naharnet is not allowing registration of new accounts anymore. I read it on twitter.

Thumb s.o.s 08 March 2018, 20:45

Naharnet should design a new interactive interface where each account is linked to a cell phone number. So when mowaten gets banned, he’s done for good. This loser registered nearly 1000 accounts!

If Gulf tourists return to Lebanon that is good on the short term for tourism, however Kizballah will simply follow its Iranian leadership norms and cause havoc or kidnap a few tourists as they have done in the past for money. This would return the situation and the tourists will disperse back to their countries again.
