The French must "refrain" from traveling to Iran, Israel, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has just informed AFP. The decision comes as Iran threatens to strike Israel, accused of an attack on April 1 on the Iranian consulate in Damascus.

The minister also called for the return of the families of diplomatic agents from Tehran, as well as a ban on missions by French officials in these countries. The French are called upon to avoid any travel to this region of the world, as tension continues to rise in the Middle East, after months of conflict between the Jewish state and Hamas. More information to come. The French must “refrain”   and “reconsider” their travel to Iran and Israel, the Foreign Affairs Ministry has just told AFP. It has also called on French nationals this Friday not to travel to the region, which has been plagued by high tensions since Iran's announcement of its desire to strike Israeli.
