Lebanon getting more isolated

The recent wave of violence in Lebanon has not gone unnoticed abroad. First, the French shut down their cultural centers in the south of Lebanon. This was followed by a negative travel advice for Saudi citizens. The latest is the Kuwaiti government also recommending its citizens to avoid Lebanon.

This was in a response to a bomb threat against the Kuwaiti embassy in Beirut earlier this morning. Luckily, the treat was empty and no bombs/rockets were found. The threat was made anonymously so it's anyone's guess who is behind it.

There might be a link with the death of Imad Mughniyeh, which has caused upheaval after some Kuwaiti MPs openly mourned his death. Given that he was supposedly responsible for hijacking a Kuwaiti plane, this support for Mughniyeh didn't go down too well.
