Saudi King hosts 1000 Palestinians for Hajj whose families were martyred


Riyadh — Saudi King Salman has issued orders to host 1,000 Palestinians for Hajj, whose family members were martyred by the Israeli aggression.

According to Saudi Press Agency, the Palestinians will perform the pilgrimage under the Guests’ Program of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for Hajj and Umrah.

Minister of Islamic Affairs Abdullatif Al-Asheikh thanked the King for his generous gesture toward Palestine and Palestinians.

“The ministry, in cooperation with its various agencies, will work swiftly to implement the order by completing the procedures through the Kingdom’s embassies in Egypt and Jordan for their arrival on board special aircraft,” he said.

In February this year, the Saudi Fund for Development deposited $60 million into the account of the Palestinian Finance Ministry.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has always stood for the Palestinian cause financially and legally.
