    Israel Fast-rising property prices are the main source of risk in the short to medium term.
    Jordan D&B downgrades Jordan's country risk rating due to on-going political tensions and economic concerns.
    Kuwait Political risk remains high as tensions between the prime minister, parliament and royal family threaten stability.
    Lebanon The issuance of indictments against four Hezbollah members undermines the risk outlook.
    Oman D&B downgrades Oman's country risk rating amid persistent economic and political tensions.
    Qatar Gas exports ensure strong potential in the short term but inflationary pressures are growing.
