It is believed to be one of the oldest Shiite mosques in Kuwait, which is a Predominantly Sunni Arab nation where at least at third of the population is said to be Shiite Muslim.

According to one of the witnesses present at the mosque, Hassan al Haddad, the attack came in to action when the worshippers were standing shoulder to shoulder doing their group prayer.

The blast was so terrific that the walls and ceilings of the mosque also got destructed.
