Kuwaiti Govt. Deports 14 People Suspected for Links with Hezbollah: Report
Mon Mar 21, 2016 16:41:47

The Kuwaiti government has deported 11 Lebanese and three Iraqis on charges of having links to Lebanon's resistance movement, Hezbollah, a report says.

The Kuwaiti Arabic daily al-Qabas quoted a security source as saying on Monday that the 14 people had been expelled on the order of the state security service.

The move came nearly three weeks after the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC), under the influence of the Saudi regime, declared Hezbollah a “terrorist” organization. Arab League foreign ministers, except those of Iraq and Lebanon, later followed suit.

The [P]GCC - comprising Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait - however, did not provide any evidence for its allegation. This comes as the first three monarchies themselves stand accused of supporting extremists and terrorists in the region.

Describing the [P]GCC decision as "reckless and hostile,” Hezbollah blamed it on Saudi Arabia.

Elsewhere in its report, Qabas said that Kuwaiti security officials have prepared a list of "unwanted" Lebanese and Iraqi people, including advisers to big companies, to be expelled for “the public interest."

The people will not be allowed to enter the [P]GCC member states after their deportation, the daily said; Press TV reported.
