KUWAIT CITY – A suspected member of the Islamic State group has confessed to plotting attacks on targets in Kuwait including the US military and a Shiite religious hall, local media reported yesterday.


Judicial sources said Hussein al-Dhafiri, arrested with his wife in the Philippines last month, confessed to planning suicide attacks on a US military convoy and a Shiite prayer hall, the Al-Rai daily reported.


Kuwait’s Arifjan Base houses several thousand US troops and serves as a military transit point to Iraq and Afghanistan.


Home to a small Shiite minority, Kuwait was the site of a suicide attack linked to the IS back in June 2015.


A Saudi suicide bomber killed 26 worshippers in a Shiite mosque, the worst such attack in the Gulf state’s history.


Dhafiri was deported earlier in April to Kuwait where he is now set to stand trial on charges of belonging to a banned organization and plotting attacks, Al-Rai said.

He had been arrested in Manila along with his wife, whom he married after her high-ranking IS commander husband was killed in Syria.


Authorities in Kuwait have also arrested four of Dhafiri’s relatives, including his brother and nephew, in connection with the planned attacks, Al-Rai said. – AFP
