Actor Abdullah suffers knee injury
KUWAIT CITY, June 18: Assistant Undersecretary for Television Sector in the Information Ministry Majeed Al-Jazzaf said Kuwait has achieved a big leap among local and Arabian channels in the first week of Ramadan; owing to the directives of Information Minister Mohammad Al-Jabri, follow up by Undersecretary Tareq Al-Marzam, and cooperation of other assistant undersecretaries, reports Al-Jarida daily.
He pointed out the rate of advertisements increased after the first days of the month — up to KD 600,000.
