KUWAIT CITY, Nov 1: The Electronic Monitoring Department of the State Security Apparatus has spotted many fictitious sites and names which have been recently promoting false news and rumors with the aim of damaging the stability of the country and instill fear in the hearts of Kuwaitis, reports Al-Shahed daily.
