Lebanon is closed

Israel has sealed Lebanon's borders.

All of the land border crossings points into Syria have been bombed - in the north, and in the east.

The ports have been blockaded in the west.

And the airport has been destroyed in Beirut.

There's no way out and no way in.

Many countries are sending warships to Lebanon to get their citizens out.

Movement INSIDE Lebanon has been heavily restricted too...roads, bridges and petrol stations have all been attacked, meaning civilians are being held hostage to Israel's almost continuous air raids.
