Germany has urged its citizens to leave Iran due to the potential escalation of tensions between Iran and Israel. 

"In the current tensions, especially between Israel and Iran, there is a risk of sudden escalation," the German Foreign Office said. "It cannot be excluded that air, land, and sea transport routes could be affected."

"German citizens are at a concrete risk of being arbitrarily arrested and interrogated and being given long prison sentences. Dual citizens with Iranian and German nationality are especially at risk," it added.

Following the April 1 Damascus attack, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, pledged retaliation.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed a forceful response to any Iranian aggression.

Fears of a wider conflict have led several airlines to suspend flights to Iran. 

Additionally, the Dutch embassy in Tehran has been temporarily closed, and the French embassy has evacuated the families of its employees.
