Security operatives have been embarking on a thorough security checking of worshippers before they enter the mosques in Jahra governorate to make sure the lives of other worshippers are not in danger of possible terrorist attacks, reports Al-Rai daily.
A source said uniform and plain-clothed security operatives positioned themselves at the premises of mosques and ensured that worshippers did not park their cars close to the fences of mosques to monitor suspicious movements, citing one of the largest mosques in the governorate—Aqla Al- Thufairi Mosque.

He pointed out that strict security measures at the premises was a source of relief and security for the worshippers, as they exchanged pleasantries with officers after the prayer session.
