On Friday, the Kuwaiti parliament agreed to pass a bill that charges any individual with a hefty fine or even jail time if they choose to continue dealing with Isreal.
This bill was submitted last week by five Kuwaiti MPs, reports Gulf Today.
The bill, submitted by MPs Adnan Abdulsamad, Hisham Al Saleh, Ali Al Qattan, Ahmad Al Hamad, and Khalil Al Saleh, sought a ban on any dealings or normalisation with Israel.
The draft bill also sought a ban on any direct or indirect contact with Israel and also a ban on any Kuwaiti or ex-pat residing in the country from visiting Israel.
The bill also sought to ban any expression of sympathy with Israel.
Last week, hundreds of Kuwaitis demonstrated in support of Palestinians and burned an Israeli flag to protest the bombardment of Gaza after authorities allowed the rally to proceed despite coronavirus restrictions.
Gulf states have condemned what they called flagrant Israeli violations of Palestinian rights and called for a halt to hostilities.
