Countries are warning their citizens to avoid traveling to Iran, Lebanon, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, amid potential threats of escalating regional tensions fueled by Israel’s war in Gaza.

France on Friday urged its citizens to “absolutely abstain” from parts of the region. India, Germany, Canada and the United States have issued or reiterated similar travel advisories for their citizens.

Airlines are suspending their flights: Dutch airline KLM announced on Saturday that it would stop flying over Iran and Israel “as a precautionary measure.”

The carrier will continue to operate flights to and from Tel Aviv.

“KLM uses a safety management system to determine whether a flight to a specific destination can be operated safely. We are also in direct contact with the Dutch government and other governments. This analysis shows that we can still fly safely to and from Tel Aviv,” KLM said in a statement.

Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa announced the suspension of their flights to and from the Iranian capital, Tehran, until April 18.
