Speaking in a telephone conversation with the head of the political bureau of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement, Ismail Haniyeh, Sheikh Nawaf stressed that he “will continue the legacy of late Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al Sabah and follow in his footsteps to support the Palestinian cause.”
Haniyeh, for his part, extended his condolences over Sheikh Sabah’s death, praising the unwavering positions of Kuwait and its late monarch in supporting the Palestinian cause and nation.
