Kuwait decided to ban 158 websites

August 9, 20160

The Electronic Crimes Unit in the Criminal Investigations Department has established a database for banned websites

which are being used to encourage the young people to engage in terrorist activities under the cover of religion and Islamic Jihad, reports Al-Shahed daily.

The department made classifications of suspicious websites which are now on the black list and are being monitored to identify all the people behind them.

Security sources revealed there are approximately 158 websites and blogs being utilized to entice young people to be involved in the activities of terrorist organizations. Sources said most of these websites are being administered outside Kuwait and they are trying hard to attract GCC youths, especially on Twitter and Instagram.

So far, the detectives have arrested a Jordanian residing in the country while communicating through one of these websites where he received certain instructions and information. Meanwhile, the State Security Department has started an extensive investigation on the transfer of KD 51,954 to the account of DAESH.

In a press statement, the Interior Ministry revealed that its Operations Unit received a call from a citizen saying he found an envelope in front of a money exchange office in Da’iya. The citizen revealed the envelope contained a receipt for the transfer of KD 51,954 to the account of the terrorist organization. The citizen handed over the envelope to the State Security officers.
