His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah condemned on Friday the blast that took place at the Imam Al-Sadiq Mosque in the Al-Sawaber area in downtown Kuwait City, killing and injuring scores of worshippers.
His Highness said that the perpetrators of this criminal act did not take into consideration that it was being committed in the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.
The blast was meant to tear asunder the fabric of the well-knitted Kuwaiti society by fomenting sectarian divisions and conflicts, His Highness said, but that would not happen as Kuwaitis value their unity and societal solidarity.
His Highness emphasized that security authorities were investigating the incident thoroughly and would eventually catch the criminals behind the blast and bring them to justice.
His Highness took this opportunity to extend his condolences to families of the dead and injured, wishing speedy recovery for the injured victims of this heinous act of terror. (end) bsh.ajs
