Kuwait will continue to ratchet up aid for the Palestinians, which includes an annual sum worth USD 500,000 it provides the International Labor Organization, its permanent representative to the UN Nasser Al-Heyn said on Monday.

As per the “instructions” of His Highness Kuwait’s Amir Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait-based charitieswere quick to shore up urgent aid for the Palestinians, the diplomat said amid a gathering of international donors for the Palestinians, co-organized by Kuwait and Belgium.

Kuwait has already churned out some USD 112 million worth of urgent aid for the Palestinians since the Israeli war against the Gaza Strip began, he said, underlining that such assistance will continue unimpeded given the scope of their misery.
