Kuwait - 1,100 Lebanese and Syrians can’t renew visas due to ties with Hezbollah
KUWAIT: Kuwaiti authorities banned around 1,100 Lebanese and Syrian nationals from renewing their residency visas in the country due to their affiliations with Hezbollah, Al-Qabas reported yesterday quoting security sources. These people have either direct ties or simply sympathize with the group that the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has recently branded as a terrorist organization, said the sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Some of them were given a one month notice to leave Kuwait, while others described as ‘dangerous’ will be deported immediately, the sources said. They added that Kuwaiti authorities had recently received a list of Lebanese and Syrian nationals who were deported from other GCC states.
