Kuwait lists 4 groups, 10 individuals as terrorist entities

KUWAIT CITY, May 17 (Xinhua) — Kuwait has listed four groups, including Hezbollah’s military wing in Lebanon, and 10 individuals as terrorist entities, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported Thursday.

The decision was made by the committee in charge of implementing the UN Security Council’s resolutions as part of Kuwait’s efforts to combat terrorism, KUNA quoted a source from the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry as saying.

As a member state of Terrorist Financing Targeting Centre (TFTC), Kuwait made the decision along with the United States, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman, the source added.

The military wing of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Naim Qassem are among the designated terrorist entities.

The TFTC was formed in May 2017 and inaugurated by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and U.S. President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the Arab-Islamic-American Summit held in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia.
