KUWAIT: Kuwait will buy 28 Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornets to replace a fleet of earlier versions of the US fighter jets, a top official said yesterday. The value of the deal is not expected to exceed $5 billion, the KUNA state news agency reported the head of armament and procurement at Kuwait’s defense ministry as saying. Maj Gen Lafi Al-Azmi said the deal stipulates the supplier will repurchase the old Hornet fighter jets from Kuwait. He added that details of the sale would only be disclosed after it is officially signed. “Given Kuwait’s proximity to turbulent locations, we certainly need effective military equipment,” he was quoted as saying.
The US State Department this month said it has authorized the deal, as well as the sale of 72 F-15 Strike Eagle jets to Kuwait’s Gulf neighbor Qatar at an estimated value of $21 billion. In April, Kuwait signed a contract with Italy’s Finmeccanica for the purchase of 28 Eurofighter Typhoon warplanes for under €8 billion ($8.5 billion). The National Assembly in March approved spending an additional $500 million as an advance payment for the jets.
That funding came on top of $10 billion additional defense spending already approved by parliament in January to upgrade the country’s military. Kuwait is a member of the US-led coalition bombing Islamic State group targets in Syria and Iraq, and is also taking part in a Saudi-led coalition pounding Iran-backed rebels in Yemen. Last year, it bought 24 Caracal military tactical transport helicopters and French light armored vehicles. – Agencies
KUWAIT: Remote controlled drones with built-in cameras will no longer be allowed to fly over personal properties, Interior Ministry Undersecretary Sulaiman Al-Fahd said yesterday. He said drones with cameras attached to them have hovered over houses, military compounds and other sensitive locations, which is strictly prohibited.
Those found complicit in such unlawful activities could face either three years in jail or a maximum fine of KD 3,000. Fahd also stressed the need to get the ministry’s consent before operating these drones, which are typically seen at weddings and other joyous occasions, highlighting the fact that these drones have recently been used for illicit activities.
Fahd noted the drones represent an encroachment of personal privacy and a flagrant violation of state laws, warning that security forces reserve the right to down all drones spotted without proper permits by any means possible.

KUWAIT: As the polling day for the upcoming parliamentary elections 2016 on November 26th approached, signs of traffic jams across the five constituencies start to emerge. The candidates are now entering the heated phase to lure a big number of voters, thus, causing unwanted traffic jams in areas where candidates’ headquarters are situated.
Though many candidates use valet parking services, large gatherings of crowds are still causing traffic congestion and overparking in some areas.
And with the transformation of the country into an electoral carnival, the Interior Ministry has set up a plan ahead of the elections aimed at increasing awareness on safety measures, as well as the necessity to ease traffic jams, whereas Kuwait Municipality has urged all candidates to ensure adequate parking space at their electoral headquarters. – Kuna
