The embassy made the recommendations today in a security message to Americans in Lebanon. The statement follows a recent spate of bombings and shootings in the capital, Beirut, and other parts of Lebanon.

As expected the two deadly bombings in Beirut in past two weeks that killed a dozen of people is related to the violence of the civil war in Syria.
