The two officers urged the people to stay away from the border strip, natural reserves, and oil installations, as the license will be canceled in the event of a modification to the site chosen for camping through the Municipality’s website. They also stressed the need to adhere to the prevention and safety regulations of the Kuwait Firefighting Force and the Ministry of Interior.
