Add comment on:Gulf tourists flee in face of air strikes
Daily Star (reposted)
Thousands of tourists evacuated Lebanon through the Syrian border on Thursday after Israel blockaded the country's ports and launched a debilitating air strike that left Beirut International Airport inoperable for at least 48 hours. Gulf nationals - the engines of Lebanon's recently revitalized tourism sector - lead the exodus, loading into private cars and buses provided by various embassies of Gulf Cooperation Council countries to make their way to Masnaa, the last remaining exit out of the country.
