hezbollahKuwait on Sunday urged its citizens to avoid Lebanon and those already there to leave “as soon as possible” after two rockets hit a stronghold of Hizbullah in Beirut.

“Due to the unstable situation in Lebanon and the expected consequences… a foreign ministry official urged citizens to exercise caution and to abandon travel to Lebanon at present,” the KUNA news agency cited an official statement as saying.

The Foreign Ministry also urged Kuwaitis already in Lebanon to leave “as soon as possible,” the statement said.

The travel advisory came after two rockets hit Beirut’s Shiite southern suburb wounding four people a day after Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed to achieve victory in neighboring Syria.

Hizbullah forces are battling alongside troops loyal to President Bashar Assad as the regime confronts a more than two-year conflict seeking to topple it.
