State Department urges ‘worldwide caution’ for Americans overseas as Israel-Hamas war rages

The U.S. State Department has issued a new “worldwide caution” to Americans traveling around the globe as the war rages on Thursday between Israel and Hamas. 

“Due to increased tensions in various locations around the world, the potential for terrorist attacks, demonstrations or violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests, the Department of State advises U.S. citizens overseas to exercise increased caution,” the advisory read. 

The warning came two days after the State Department issued an advisory for Americans to not travel to Lebanon “due to the unpredictable security situation related to rocket, missile, and artillery exchanges between Israel and Hezbollah or other armed militant factions.” 

“On, October 17, 2023, the Department authorized the voluntary, temporary departure of family members of U.S. government personnel and some non-emergency personnel from U.S. Embassy Beirut due to the unpredictable security situation in Lebanon,” that message read. 

 

It said it responded by “returning fire to the origin of the strikes” and “striking Hezbollah terrorist infrastructure using tank fire,” according to a post on X, formerly Twitter.
