KUWAIT CITY, July 4, (Agencies): Kuwaiti security personnel must be fully prepared to deal with any security-threatening situations, in the light of the current local and regional developments, said Undersecretary of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior Lt Gen Sulaiman Al-Fahad.

This came in a press release by the Department of Security Media and Public Relations during Al-Fahad’s chairmanship of a meeting of senior ministry officials on Monday. “We are heading towards a time of hardships that requires unity of all sectors”, said Al-Fahad, adding that “security personnel have a huge responsibility to safeguard the country’s security and stability.”

Meanwhile, he thanked security members for their efforts to control traffic movement and ensure the safety of mosques during the holy month of Ramadan. The meeting was called for by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, after Kuwait has announced on Sunday arresting terrorist groups belonging to the so-called Islamic State (IS), during military operations executed inside and outside of Kuwait.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior stressed that it will take legal measures against everybody trying to post tweets on social media networks aiming to underestimate the ministry’s achievements and offend the brotherly countries.

General Director of the ministry’s Public Relations and Security Media Department Brig. Adel Al-Hashash said in a press statement that the ministry and its bodies don’t accept absolutely what has been posted on social media that underestimated the ministry’s achievements on the ground and offended the brotherly states. Such tweets undermine the country’s security and citizens’ safety, he said, noting that the ministry will take measures against those who posted offensive tweets.
