Kuwait has also raised the security alert level at all of its commercial ports, including the oil terminals.

Kuwait has strategic foodstuff reserves to cover four to eight months of consumption, the state news agency Kuna reported, as regional tension rises following attacks on oil facilities in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.

"Kuwait Flour Mills and Bakeries Co. is ready to face any circumstance caused by the situation in the region by tapping its strategic foodstuff reserve, which covers four to eight months," said the state-owned company's chief executive, Mutlaq Al Zayed, cited by Kuna.

On Friday, Kuwait has raised the security alert level at all of its commercial ports, including the oil terminals.
