Airlines operating at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport have begun implementing a travel ban to the United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries.
The International Air Travel Agency order comes hours after a three Syrian nationals traveling to the US were forced to return from Paris to Beirut, an airport source told The Daily Star.
President Donald Trump recently ordered a four-month freeze on refugee travel into the United States. He also temporarily barred travelers from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the US.
The airliners have started to implement this ban on passengers wishing to travel to the US via other international airports in other countries.
