King Salman, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, has been assured that preparations were in place to best serve pilgrims during Ramadan.
The Council of Ministers, chaired by King Salman at Al Salam Palace on Monday, said the kingdom would provide the best services to visitors to the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah during the holy month.
The Cabinet directed all authorities to create a serene atmosphere for visitors to the Two Holy Mosques, reported the Saudi Gazette.
Security aircraft will hover over Makkah and Madinah during Ramadan to monitor traffic and supervise the safety and security of pilgrims and worshippers, according to Maj. Gen. Muhammad Bin Eid Al Harbe, Commander of Security Aviation.
He told the Saudi Gazette that the airbase of security aircraft in Makkah would be reinforced with additional aircraft, manpower and technical support.
“We will do this by most modern aircraft which are supplied with the state-of-the-art technology for surveillance, monitoring and analysis of all security matters on the ground including traffic movement,” said Al Harbe.
Aircraft will carry out security and humanitarian missions and will also provide logistical support to all ministries and government departments, said Al Harbe.
