The U.S. State Department on Thursday said it is temporarily suspending its travel advisory for Oman because of the threat posed by ISIS.
The travel advisory, issued in April, is intended to warn citizens against travel to the country, which has been hit hard by a series of deadly attacks over the past year.
U.N. experts have warned that ISIS has claimed responsibility for several attacks in Oman.
Oman is a popular tourist destination and has been one of the most peaceful countries in the Middle East, despite its harsh reputation.
The country was also the birthplace of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was toppled by the Houthi rebels in 2014.
Saleh, whose name is synonymous with the country’s brutal and repressive policies, died in 2016.
His son, Abdelaziz Saleh Al-Salehi, was imprisoned in the UAE after being accused of involvement in the 2008 bombings of two U.K. landmarks.
The State Department has warned that the travel advisory “does not include travel to Oman by air, sea, land, and by land transportation.”
The travel advisory is not the first time the U.M. has been affected by ISIS threats.
In March, the State Department said it was halting travel to Somalia because of a wave of terror threats.
