On Feb 2nd, Google expanded city-level location targeting to 17 additional countries. AdWord API blog announced that "Starting today and over the coming weeks, we'll be introducing new cities and regions in the following countries for targeting via the AdWords API:"

In order to target these locations, be sure to update your app so the new locations are available in your user interface.

Please note: "clients that use CampaignTargetService in AdWords API (including AdWords Editor) mayn't be updated to support the new locations. If you set up your campaign to target the new locations using AdWords interface and then edit that campaign's location targets via another client using CampaignTargetService, the campaign's new location targets not recognized by the client may get dropped without warning. To prevent this from happening, use AdWords interface exclusively for editing campaigns that use the new location targets," explains Google.
