Kuwaiti National Assembly Approves tougher Penalties For Normalization with Israel

Thursday, May 27, 2021, the Kuwaiti National Assembly (Parliament) unanimously approved a bill prohibiting normalization with the Israeli occupation.

The Parliament said, in a statement read by its president, H.E. Mr. Marzouq Al-Ghanim, that "this step is a new message for the stability of the Kuwaiti position and the meeting between the government and the National Assembly, on the strong condemnation and total rejection of the recent Zionist aggression and all the occupation crimes in Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the Palestinian interior."

The Kuwaiti Parliament also expressed permanent solidarity with the Palestinian people's struggle to obtain their natural right to establish their independent state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

According to Kuwaiti law, Israel is an enemy state, and natural and legal persons are prohibited from concluding agreements or deals with bodies or persons residing in Israel or belonging to it by their nationality or working for it or in its interest.

The deal or the conclusion of agreements or deals shall result in a life imprisonment or temporary imprisonment of 5 to 10 years, and a fine.

Since April 13, the situation in the Palestinian territories has exploded, as a result of brutal attacks perpetrated by the Israeli police and settlers in Jerusalem, especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood (center), in an attempt to evacuate 12 Palestinian homes and hand them over to settlers.

At dawn on May 21, a ceasefire began between Israel and the Palestinian factions in Gaza, mediated by Egypt, after an 11-day Israeli military aggression on the Strip, in which more than two million Palestinians live, and has been besieged by Israel since the summer of 2006.

The Israeli aggression on the Palestinian territories resulted in a total of 288 martyrs, including 69 children, 40 women and 17 elderly, in addition to more than 8,900 wounded, including 90 "very serious" injuries.
