The Governor of Najran region Prince Jalawi bin Abdulaziz bin Musaed conveyed the greetings of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, the Crown Prince and the Deputy Crown Prince to Yemeni pilgrims arriving in the kingdom to perform the Hajj via the Al Wadiah border crossing.

During his inspection of the border crossing in the town of Sharurah, Prince Jalawi bin Abdulaziz greeted Yemeni pilgrims yesterday and confirmed that Saudi leadership directives aim to take care of Yemeni pilgrims, facilitate entry procedures for them, provide them with services and provide them with everything that they need from the moment that they arrive on Saudi territory until they leave the country after having performed the Hajj.

He said that “God has honoured Saudi Arabia with the duty of serving Islam and Muslims and has blessed the country with a wise leadership and noble people. Saudi Arabia opens its doors to receive the guests of God, the Merciful, from every corner of the globe that arrive via land, sea and air”.

Prince Jalawi reviewed the efforts of the security and service agencies, and visited the centre for Da’wah and Guidance which is part of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Da’wah and Guidance. He also visited a Civil Defence Unit, the headquarters of the Saudi Red Crescent, customs, the passports department and the headquarters of the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

The Yemeni pilgrims thanked the Saudi government led by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for providing them with an excellent service that aims to enhance their comfort and which will enable them to perform the pilgrimage. They also said that this level of care is not surprising from a country that seeks to establish peace and security in Yemen and throughout the region.
