Martyr’s Office wing reopens at Bait Al-Othman Museum

Salah Al-Oufan, the Director General of the Martyr’s Office, and Hussein Al-Qattan, the Deputy Director of the Bait Al-Othman Museum, jointly inaugurated the renovated wing of the Martyr’s Office at the museum, coinciding with national holidays.

The updated wing showcases images of martyrs dating back to 1961, including those who lost their lives during the Iraqi invasion and in the line of duty, reports Al-Jarida daily.

Al-Oufan revealed that Kuwait had lost 153 martyrs since gaining independence in 1961 until just before the invasion.

These martyrs perished in various circumstances, including Arab wars, attacks on popular cafes, bombings of the Amir’s convoy, and the hijacking of the Jabriya plane. Additionally, soldiers who died on duty or in other terrorist incidents are honored as well.

The number of martyrs from the aggression and captivity stands at 968, while post-invasion martyrs total 208.

Al-Oufan emphasized the Martyr’s Office’s commitment to supporting military martyrs on duty, as well as those who perished in natural disasters or other extraordinary events approved by the Council of Ministers. The office extends care to the parents, spouses, and children of martyrs, with a total of 1,329 martyrs being honored to date.
