Kuwait issued a directive to deport an Indian nurse because of her support for the Israeli occupation in its war on Gaza.
According to Kuwait’s Al-Rai newspaper yesterday: “The Ministry of Interior deported an Indian nurse from Kuwait who was working in Al-Sabah Hospital [in the capital], after she supported the occupation in its war against Palestine.”
The newspaper noted this is the second case involving “an expatriate holding Indian citizenship and working in the Ministry of Health as she spread her solidarity and support via her WhatsApp status, described the Palestinians as terrorists, and displayed an Israeli flag.”
The Kuwaiti newspaper quoted informed sources as saying that the nurse “admitted during questioning that she supports the occupation following a complaint submitted by lawyer Bandar Al-Mutairi.”
On 22 October, a complaint, the first of its kind, was filed before the Kuwaiti Public Prosecution against an Indian nurse working at Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital who “supported the actions of the Israeli occupation forces of killing Palestinian children and bombing the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital and displayed the Israeli flag on her social media accounts.”
The former Emir of Kuwait, Sabah Al-Salem, issued a decree on 5 June 1967, declaring a defensive war between the Gulf kingdom and the Zionist gangs in occupied Palestine.
More than 8,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air strikes on Gaza, half of them children, with over 20,000 wounded since 7 October.
