INU - Ambassador Alireza Enayati, as well as three-quarters of Iran’s diplomatic staff, were ordered to be expelled from Kuwait City on July 20th, 2017. The Kuwaiti government ordered the closure of the Iranian regime’s cultural, trade, and military missions in Kuwait following last month’s Supreme Court ruling that found 21 Shiite nationals and one Iranian citizen guilty of plotting “hostile acts” against the state, smuggling explosives and weapons, and receiving training and support from Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Sixteen members of this “Abdali cell” (named after the border town where the cell members gathered) escaped from prison to Iran after their conviction.
