Official spokesmen of Hajj-related government bodies brief reporters on preparations to help more than 2 million pilgrims settle in Mina valley tomorrow 7 Mina, suburb of Makkah

The Assistant Commander of the Hajj security forces for information and awareness Colonel Sami bin Mohammed Al-Shwerikh said that all government agencies, including the security forces of the Hajj have completed preparations, earlier, to receive guests of Allah and provide security and traffic service to pilgrims, adding that the security control centers deployed around the holy capital, are performing their tasks of ensuring that a pilgrim shall obtain the permission of Hajj, which allows him to enter the holy sites and perform Hajj.

Al- Shwerikh noted that the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has been able to harness potentials for the success of the pilgrimage season.

He pointed out that many hypotheses have been applied to the Hajj security forces, which show the readiness and the ability to execute on the plans, on the ground, stressing that the security forces and the employees of Hajj security forces are ready to implement the plans, that they have prepared to contribute to the service and safety of the pilgrims, until their departure.

Colonel Al-Shwerikh stressed that the security forces and the employees of the Hajj security forces are ready to implement the plans that they have prepared to contribute to the service and safety of the guests of Allah, from their arrival through departure.

Security authorities have taken the initiative to monitor any violation out of control or reach the level that could affect the safety of pilgrims, he said, reiterating that each participating security man carries security responsibilities, for all tasks performed to serve the pilgrims and the most important is the responsibility to take the initiative, in dealing with any violation that is monitored before it gets out of control.

Hajj security forces are working with all parties in different parts of the Kingdom to monitor, track and control the situation, at the holy sites, he stated, adding that it is worth noting that 126 falsely run Hajj offices have been monitored and their finances were seized and returned to their owners, calling for those intending to perform Hajj to pursue the set means set forth on the portals of the ministry of Hajj and other competent security departments, to avoid falling into misleading and baseless advertisements.
