Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately

Tyler Durden's picture

In a odd coincidence, just moments after we published an article laying out Hezbollah's military power at a time when both Saudi Arabia and Lebanon appear to be targeting Lebanon, and just two days after we discussed a leaked Israeli cable that confirmed Saudi Arabia and Israel are deliberately coordinating to destabilize the region and push Lebanon to a state of war, Saudi Arabia has ordered its citizens residing in Lebanon to leave immediately in a travel warning issued on Thursday, November 9. As Al Arabiya adds, the travel warning also called for Saudi nationals not to travel to Lebanon from any point of origin.

Full advisory below:

Official Source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.


Riyadh, Safar 20, 1439, November 09, 2017, SPA -- Due to the situations in the Republic of Lebanon, the official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.


The Kingdom advised all citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations.

This follows a similar warning issued by the Kingdom of Bahrain on November 5 urghing its nationals residing in Lebanon to leave immediately and to "exercise caution.” The Bahraini call came a day after Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation, while on location in Saudi Arabia, citing concerns he could be assassinated like his father, criticized the Lebanon-based Hezbollah paramilitary and political movement and accused Iran of alleged attempts to bring destruction to the region. The Bahraini foreign ministry said in a statement received by AFP that its call was "in the interest of its citizens’ safety and to avoid any risks they may be exposed due to the conditions and developments” that Lebanon is going through.

Earlier, Reuters reported that Lebanon believes former premier Saad al-Hariri, who as noted above resigned on Saturday while in Saudi Arabia, is being held by Riyadh, and Beirut plans to work with foreign states to secure his return, a top Lebanese government official said on Thursday. A second Reuters source, a senior politician close to Saudi-allied Hariri, said Saudi Arabia had ordered him to resign and put him under house arrest. A third source familiar with the situation said Saudi Arabia was controlling and limiting his movement.

Saudi Arabia and members of Hariri’s Future Movement have denied reports that he is under house arrest. But he has put out no statements himself denying his movements are being restricted. He made a one-day flying visit to the United Arab Emirates earlier this week before returning to Saudi Arabia.

Earlier on Thursday, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister also urged the international community to slap fresh sanctions against Iran, accusing its regional rival of supporting terrorism.

"We would like to see sanctions on Iran for its support of terrorism and sanctions on Iran for violating the ballistic missile resolutions of the United Nations," Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of foreign affairs, told CNBC Thursday.

Al-Jubeir also said that the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers was "weak," especially given Tehran would be capable of assembling a bomb "within weeks." He added he would like to see international agencies carry out a "much more robust" job when conducting inspections in Iran.

Al-Jubeir also described the situation in Lebanon as "unfortunate" and went on to accuse Hezbollah of "hijacking the system" and putting "roadblocks" in front of Hariri at every opportunity. When asked whether Saudi Arabia was headed for a direct conflict with Iran, Al-Jubeir replied, "We hope not", and yet just hours later Riyadh made it clear that any Saudi citizens in Lebanon are now in danger.

Needless to say, traditionally such accelerate evacuation orders have preceded military intervention. Should that be the case again, keep a close eye on oil.

Citizens of Saudi Arabia? Are these the ones who determine who runs that fiefdom?

Lebanon Population
7,750,000 ( January 2017 est.):
2 million Syrian and 450,000 Palestinian "refugees".
Christian "refugees" - about 3 million

Proportionally, Lebanon has the highest rate of Christians in the Middle East, where the percentage ranges between 39% and 40.5%, followed directly by Egypt and Syria where most likely Christians account for about 10 percent.

Jews are fucking nazis. Just ask the palestinians whose land you stole and population you slaughtered. You know, the palestinians you are holding in concentration camp Gaza.

It might seem like a glib remark from you but in fact Israelis are mirrir images of Nazis. Want their country populated on the basis of racial purity, heavy state involvement in social issues, aggressive foreign policy, glorification of the military. .....

1917   How many people did Russia's Bolshevik Communists kill?    Israel's YNET News admits: "at least 20 million." - or - Alexander SOLZHENITSYN states flatly: "66 million."


1920-1925 On the orders of Lenin, the Bolsheviks engineered genocide by mass starvation with the requisition of grain reserves from.


1930-1937, around 300,000 to 350,000 Russian Germans lost their lives from the deliberate starvation, deportation, or massacres of resisters to "collectivization."  Around 7 million Ukrainians died from the same policies.

1933 C.E.        Europe            Immigrant Jews banned from citizenship.

1935 C.E.        Germany         Loss of citizenship, imprisonment in slave labor camps.


1948 C.E.        Libya   Pogrom


1969 C.E.        Iraq      Executions


How to understand that so many cultures reacted the same?

ShakenNotStirred's picture

These the same years were they were killing each other as well in countless wars.

So, the Jews were one of the many victims of deportation and murder.

Regarding Jerusalem, it was founded by ancient Jews, so the fact of them being

expelled from their own city tell all what need to know about the "masters".

You would note that, won't be for your sheer ignorance.

You tried and you failed.



ptolemy_newit's picture

The land was Syria and Caanan

Some modern scholars regard the monotheistic religion of the Israelites as having evolved gradually out of the beliefs and practices of the earlier peoples of Canaan

In the eastern hill country, a group of other people closely related to the Canaanites had by now established themselves. These were (from north to south) the Ammonites, Moabites, and Edomites.

One striking aspect of the archaeological record is their lack of pork remains, in marked contrast with finds from other parts of Palestine; and there are also indications that circumcision was being practiced. Clearly, here was a population practicing at least some elements of the later Israelite religious culture.

Some, particularly certain Palestinians and Arabs, still refer to Jews whose ancestors had lived in Palestine before Zionism as "Palestinians". Jews who lived in Palestine during the Middle Ages are also referred to as "Palestinian Jews" in a scholarly sense, eg. the authors of the "Palestinian Talmud". The name refers to the "Jerusalem Talmud" - its Hebrew name.

Most early literature when referring to "Palestinians" meant to designate Jews, but after the modern State of Israel was born, Jews were identified as Israelis, their original self-definition. It was after the 1967 War that the word "Palestinian" began to be used to differentiate the Arab of the Palestinian region from the other Arabs of the region, eg the Egyptians, the Syrians, etc



November 2nd, 1917 - that’s the age of Israel (bribary)

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet:

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country".

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist 

Yours sincerely

Arthur James Balfour

No outrage anywhere? 

Suppose the Ukranian president resigned while he was in Russia. Suppose the Russians issued a statement to all citizens to leave Ukraine. The west would explode.

 Better yet,suppose Saudi's major export was carrots. They would still be a third world country.

Worth mentioning (, especially when it's this blatant... AGAIN!... But confirms what everyone including every member at the UN security council that the names keep changing and "consolidating" as they continue to get "liquidated"!...

I just hope Russia and Iran have something to say about it in light of "JIM" at the UN yesterday?!!!

And especially when Israel and it's partners make good on lighting the biggest "Roman Candle" in Lebanon that will somehow reverse all of the their defeat(s) in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Libya!

This is when you know for certain you're out of INFLUENCE, TIME and the biggest shoe to drop your MONEY$$$ no longer carries any clout!!!

Cliff notes;

1. Bibi selects Jewrod Kushner Nov 8, 2016. Jewrod Cerberus HQ 666 5th Ave.

2. GCC kicks out Qatar because ISIS project fails and south Pars gas field pivots to Iran.

3. Saudi-Yemeni war sideways, Israel offers solution but really only wants to advance Oded Yinon.

4. Jewrod goes to MBS with Bibi plan, starting with Saudi purge/counter coup, then attack on Lebanon before coup de gras, Iranian war, H/T Snipeir Ag Ober.

5. Israel gets the Litani water, H/T Winnie, loosens the Shia crescent wrench and corresponding oil/gas "considerations".

6. MBS keeps his head attached and gets Saudi all to himself as well as a successful Aramco IPO as Israel's lackey in their Oded Yinon plan.

7. Jewrod gets to buy oil calls all week before the Israeli's go fly many Kikes dropping bombs. Kushner then gets a synagogue named for him in Tehran.

Have I missed anything?
