SMARTRAVELLER has warned that the security situation in the Middle East remains volatile and could change at any time.
Australians who are travelling in the affected regions are advised to remain vigilant and monitor developments via the media and Smartraveller website.
The warning comes after a US airstrike near the Baghdad International Airport on 03 Jan, which killed an Iranian senior commander and Iraqi paramilitary leaders.
The level of advice for the following regions remains the same: Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen at “do not travel”; Bahrain, Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Kuwait at “exercise a high degree of caution”, and Saudi Arabia at “reconsider the need to travel”.
Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates remain at the normal safety precaution level.
