KUWAIT CITY, June 26: The Ministry of Interior is continuing its preparations for the Eid Al-Adha holidays including the preparation of a comprehensive security plan that includes the deployment of about 4,000 officers from the public security, traffic, rescue, criminal investigation, women’s police, public morals, and residence affairs departments. Officers, personnel, and patrol officers will also be distributed to Eid slaughterhouses, complexes, beaches, chalets, and farms in order to deter any violations that would disturb the public order or violate public morals, reports Al-Rai daily. According to informed sources, instructions were issued by the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled, and the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior Lieutenant General Anwar Al-Barjas to prepare a comprehensive security plan for the Eid holidays, monitor any negative phenomena that violate the public morals of Kuwaiti society, and arrest anyone who does not abide by the law. They highlighted the strict instructions to deal with law violators.

The sources explained that a security checkpoint has been set up on Kubbar Island by the Coast Guard Department to secure the island visitors and maintain public order. If any Kuwaiti violator is caught, he will be referred to the concerned authority, while expatriate violators will be deported from the country. They identified the most prominent sites that will be under the watch of the security officers, and will be subject to intensified patrols. They include chalet areas, farms, stables, and the Jaber Bridge. This is aimed to deter any behavior outside the law. They will also increase security presence in some vital sites, such as commercial malls, and conduct field tours for sector leaders.

The sources affirmed the readiness of the Ministry of Interior to deal with all security reports through fixed checkpoints and by foot patrol officers in all governorates of the country in order to protect citizens and residents, allow them to enjoy the holidays in full safety and security, and arrest all outlaws. They highlighted the coordination between security officers and the Kuwait Municipality to work on controlling mobile butchers who slaughter sacrificial animals either in front of homes or in other places, adding that any expatriate butcher who is caught is expelled from the country immediately.

On a related note, the Kuwait Municipality also finished its preparations by securing 1,020 cleaners who will be distributed at dawn on the first day of Eid Al-Adha to all mosques where Eid prayers will be held. It has also ensured the provision of 641 containers and more than 23 water tanks and presses to serve the worshippers in all governorates of the country. It stressed the prohibition of the establishment of fences for sacrifices, and urged people not to deal with mobile butchers in private and model housing areas.
