Housing project at Abu Halifa park
KUWAIT CITY, Aug 28: The recent missile attack occurred outside Kuwaiti territories and the Kuwaiti borders are safe and well protected, says MP Hamad Al-Matar quoting Minister of Defense Sheikh Hamad Jaber Al-Ali. Al-Matar made the statement following the spread of rumors about the missile attack near the northern borders of Kuwait. He said Sheikh Hamad Jaber has coordinated with neighboring countries, while emphasizing that there is nothing to worry about as Kuwait is completely secured. Commenting on the same issue, MP Abdulkareem Al-Kandari criticized the silence of the government over such a serious rumor; leaving the citizens as victims of the rumor. He pointed out the government has a powerful media and spokesperson, yet the citizens lack information about serious issues
Also, Kuwait Army released an official statement that there has been no missile attack on the northern borders of the country; clarifying a Katyusha missile landed on the joint international territory separating Kuwait and Iraq without causing damage. Meanwhile, MP Khalid Al-Otaibi urged the Council of Ministers to visit Abu Halifa Park to address obstacles to handing over the site to the Public Authority of Housing Welfare (PAHW) for the implementation of a housing project. He praised the Council for its decision regarding Jaber Causeway as it guarantees a bright future for the citizens; but it is equally important to address current issues to improve the present situation.
He asserted the State Ministry for Housing Affairs has no justification for the further delay in the implementation of the housing project; considering the Municipal Council already approved the allocation of the park which measures 65,000 square meters for the project. He added the project was supposed to be launched during the term of the previous Parliament, but some unknown figures have been trying to delay its implementation to serve personal interests.
