Kuwait Mark History

Daesh claims attack

A Daesh terror group branch that refers to itself as the “Islamic State in the Province of Najd” (central Saudi Arabia) claimed responsibility for the attack on the mosque. Najd Province claimed similar bombings at Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia in recent weeks.

Attack condemned

The UAE has strongly condemned the mosque attack in Kuwait. Bahraini foreign minister Shaikh Khaled Bin Ahmad also condemned the attack, saying on Twitter that it “is not sectarianism, but a war on Islam and a calculated [attempt at sowing] discord [among Muslims]”.

“The presence of [separate] mosques for Shiites and Sunnis is the bigger innovation. This is sectarianism par excellence,” he tweeted.

Prominent Salafist figure and former member of parliament Walid Tabtabai offered his condolences on Twitter but said that he suspected that Iran was behind the attack. “The attack was the work of the people behind the Al Anood and Al Qadeeh (Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia), and this party has been infiltrated by Iranian intelligence to create sectarian discord.”

Investigation

Kuwaiti Shiites make up around one-third of the country’s native population of 1.3 million people. The interior ministry said it launched a full investigation into the incident. Three weeks ago, the ministry said it has raised the level of security around mosques following the bombings in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. The bombing was strongly condemned by political groups, organisations and lawmakers. The mainstream Sunni group, the Islamic Constitutional Movement condemned what it called “the low criminal attack targeting the (Shiite) mosque.”

Kuwait’s leading Sunni cleric, Sheikh Ajeel al-Nashmi, said on Twitter that the bombing is a “criminal act aimed at sowing seeds of discord, and undoubtedly Shiites and Sunnis will foil the terrorists’ plot.” Independent MP Sultan Al-Shemmari called on the government to “hit with an iron fist” against the “terrorists.” In the past few weeks, Kuwaiti courts have tried a number of people on charges of being Daesh members and sentenced at least one of them to several years in jail.

Emir visits mosque

Kuwait’s emir, Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, immediately visited the site, and footage on state-run Kuwait Television showed him visibly moved by the scenes of carnage. The television showed footage of massive destruction caused by the blast, and people posted online horrific pictures of the dead and wounded. The Kuwaiti cabinet went into an emergency meeting to discuss the incident, as the interior ministry raised the level of alert and mobilised all security forces.
