Fatah lauds Kuwait’s historic support of Palestinian cause
KUWAIT/RAMALLAH: The Kuwaiti Ministry of Education has worked out contracts with 342 male and female teachers from Palestine to secure a sufficient number of teachers for upcoming academic year. Usama Al-Sultan, the assistant undersecretary at the ministry, said in a press release on Tuesday that the batch of the employed teachers would arrive in the country in the middle of August to begin work with onset of the next scholastic year. He indicated that the Kuwaiti mission for the task had selected the most competent teachers, in line with the approach to enhance education at the national level.
In other news, the Palestinian Fatah movement, which is chaired by President Mahmoud Abbas, lauded on Tuesday Kuwait’s historic stands in favor of the Palestinian cause. Kuwait has significant and key role in the Palestinian cause’s history, particularly in hosting the Palestinian people, Fatah’s Deputy-Chairman Mahmoud Al-Aloul stated. Aloul made his remarks while meeting with a visiting delegation from the Kuwaiti education ministry at Fatah’s Mobilization and Organization Commission headquarters, noting the Kuwaiti-Palestinian relationship is beyond diplomacy.
Dalal Salama, member of Farah’s Central Committee, said Kuwait played an important role in hosting the Palestinian revolution and Fatah movement. “Fatah movement wanted to host you at its own headquarters to tell you that you supported the movement since its establishment,” said Salama. “We believe you would leave a notable mark within the next days,” she said, affirming Kuwait’s continued support of the Palestinian cause as a top priority on all levels. Meanwhile, Fahad Al-Ghais, Assistant Undersecretary for Financial Affairs at the Kuwaiti education ministry, indicated that the number of Palestinian teachers in Kuwait has reached 190 over the past two years. Ghais, also head of the Kuwaiti visiting delegation, added teachers from the Gaza Strip had the lion share of contracts this year, noting the harsh living conditions endured by Gaza’s residents in light of the ongoing Israeli blockage and high unemployment rate.
In the meantime, Basem Al-Tamimi, head of the Palestinian-Kuwaiti friendship and cooperation society, said that the society is honoring the Kuwaiti education ministry’s delegation in an appreciation of Kuwait and its people for their firm stand in favor of the Palestinian cause. The society was established in 2014 after the national union of Palestinian public institutions in the city of Tulkarm celebrated Kuwait’s national day under the auspices of President Abbas, Tamimi said. He also noted the Palestinian-Kuwaiti friendship and cooperation society aims at deepening fraternal ties between people of the two countries. – KUNA
