OTTAWA — The Foreign Affairs Department issued a travel warning Monday, July 23, advising Canadians in Lebanon to avoid areas within five kilometres of the Syrian border.

“There have been incursions by Syrian troops and shelling across the border, which have led to casualties,” the department says, adding that the Lebanon-Syria border is “not clearly delineated” in all areas.

Canadians who are leaving Syria by land via this border “should keep this information in mind and transit through this area as quickly as possible.”

Shells fired from inside Syria killed two Lebanese civilians on July 7 and injured 10 others, security officials said.

      Wilma, apparently you or your parents were not born there, but a good many islanders were, and would love to be free to come and go at will.
