The Ministry of Foreign Affairs tightens travel advice for Norwegian citizens to Iran.

Due to the unpredictable security situation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is tightening travel advice for Iran, and encouraging Norwegian citizens to leave the country.

The updated travel advice comes three days later Iran's attack on Israel.

Israel said it would respond to the attack, which several countries, including Norway, warned against.

– Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide said on Monday of this week that it would not be wise for Israel to attack targets in Iran now, and it would not be possible to defend them by referring to international law.

Postponing the war meeting

The Israeli War Council was supposed to meet on Tuesday evening to discuss how to respond to the Iranian attack. This would have been the third meeting of the War Cabinet after the missile attack by Iran. Now, however, the meeting has been postponed to tomorrow, writes NTB.

The leadership in Tehran said Saturday's attack was in response to the Israeli airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, on April 1. Seven Iranian officers were killed.
