A police security campaign led by Interior Ministry Undersecretary Suleiman Al-Fahadad and other top officials resulted in the arrest of 1023 violators in Mahboula area.
Relations and Security Information Department said the arrested persons were sent to concerned authorities, as their violations varied between entering the country illegally, absconding, residency law violation, loose labor, drugs and other civil cases.
The authorities closed the area from 5 pm to prevent the wanted person from escaping. Some places were raided after obtaining warrants. Lt General Al-Fahad was accompanied by Assistant Undersecretary for Operations Affairs Maj Gen Jamal Al-Sayegh, Acting Assistant Undersecretary for General Security Maj Gen Ibrahim Al-Tarrah and other field officers.
