Masked assailants targeted renowned establishments, including KFC, Pizza Hut, and MAWC, in the Maldives.
The perpetrators issued a stark warning, threatening to halt operations, citing alleged ties to funding Israel before damaging the establishments with diesel. The attack comes in the wake of global condemnation over Israel’s actions in Gaza, a sentiment echoed in the Maldives, which has joined the call for an immediate ceasefire.
As the situation unfolds, police are actively engaged at the scenes, launching investigations into the identities of the attackers. The incident raises concerns about the potential escalation of tensions and the security implications for businesses operating in the region.
