KUWAIT: The Kuwaiti government has announced 10 years imprisoned and a fine of 5000 Dirham for those who support Israel in real life or on social media.
Internationally renowned Investment Banker, Entrepreneur and Capital Markets Advisor, Mir Mohammad Alikhan shared the news on social media on Wednesday.
He said, “My Salute to Kuwaiti Government: Kuwait announces a law where anyone supporting Israel in real life or the social media from within Kuwait will be imprisoned for 10 years and a fine of KD 5000.” “As harsh it may sound PM @ImranKhanPTI you need to do this as well,” he suggested.
Earlier, the Kuwaiti prime minister had reaffirmed his country’s principled and firm position in supporting the choices of the Palestinian people to obtain their legitimate rights.
“The Palestinian cause still occupies a central historical and pivotal position in Arab and Islamic worlds,” Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah told the 75th session of the UN General Assembly via video link.
Al-Sabah stressed the importance of continuing efforts to relaunch negotiations to reach a just and comprehensive peace in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative.
He called for an end to the Israeli occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s longest-running and most controversial conflicts as a result clashes between the two counties once again escalated in Jerusalem. More than 49 Palestinians and several others were injured as Israeli forces targeted innocent people outside the Old City of Jerusalem.
Israel carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Gaza on Wednesday and Palestinian fighters fired multiple rocket barrages at Tel Aviv and the southern city of Beersheba in the region’s most intense hostilities in years.
At least 49 people have been killed in Gaza since violence escalated on Monday, according to the enclave’s health ministry. Six people have been killed in Israel, medical officials said.
One multi-story residential building in Gaza collapsed and another was heavily damaged after they were repeatedly hit by Israeli airstrikes. MMN
