Saudi Arabia has stationed women police officers on duty for the first time in history at Makkah’s Grand mosque.

The Saudi Ministry of Interior shared the photos of female security officers patrolling the compound of the mosque.

The moves come as part of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Al Saud’s Vision 2030 reform.

The images were widely shared on social media and several news sites, including CNN.

The presence of female officers for Grand Mosque's security impressed the social media users. The photos were retweeted and commented on by activists and analysts.

Turki Al Sheikh, head of the Saudi Entertainment Authority, commented on the photos with a tweet in which he said: "The homeland is in the field," while Prince Sattam Bin Khalid Bin Nasser Al Saud commented by posting the image of the Saudi flag and green hearts.

The Saudi academic, Turki Al-Hamad, commented on the photo, "A picture worth thousand words… an image is closer to a symbol that means a lot... It is the new Saudi Arabia that is coming strongly into the modern era."

They need to pack in serious firepower...as even the most average of men can easily overpower the strongest of women...These women need to be on regular steroid and powerlifting cycle to intimidate the men

I don't think they are expected to fight off a bunch of men there. Their job is like traffic police, guiding and directing people instead of security per say.

They are in haram shareef. Which sane man/person will ever want to show his strength to police officer in haram ? Or want to stage a sit-in or conduct a strike ? They need firepower in haram ? Mashallah
