    Saudi Arabia has deployed 95,000 security forces to maintain order during this year’s Muslim hajj pilgrimage, Interior Minister Prince Mohammad bin Nayef said on Wednesday.

    The minister called on pilgrims, who come from all over the world, to leave their political and sectarian differences aside during the annual religious and spiritual journey.
    “Hajj is not an area of political conflicts and sectarian differences,” Prince bin Nayef said.


    “Saudi Arabia has witnessed in the past a fierce terrorist campaign which did not exclude the holy land but we were able to confront it and reduce the risks to spare the country and the people any harm,” he said

    He said the hajj security measures will make use of modern technologies and equipment supplied by the Ministry of Defense, the National Guard, and the General Intelligence.
    Electronic gates at the entrance of Makkah have been installed to control the flow of pilgrims and make sure that only those with hajj permits are allowed access, the minister said.
    He noted that the number of pilgrims this year has been reduced due to development plans intended to expand the holy mosque.

    “We are confident that both residents and citizens are aware of the exceptional circumstances in this year’s pilgrimage and will abide by the regulations to obtain permits for anyone who wants to perform hajj,” Prince bin Abdulaziz said.

    Saudi Arabia vows zero tolerance for any attempt to exploit this Hajj season for aims that are not related to the rituals and will deal with it with an iron fist.

    Its not a hajj drill dude. These pictures are from military display in Riyadh i guess. Haj security is largely about border control, crowd control and some intelligence craft to prevent idiots from exploiting the event.

    Badass as always. Thanks for all the pictures bro. Let us hope that no pilgrims from a certain country will make a mockery out of the blessed Hajj again or others. I like the no-tolerance stance in regard to that. Saudi Arabian or non-Saudi Arabian. The hajj is by no means the forum for that. It is to serve all Muslims and to concentrate on the Islamic rituals. Not political manifestations, demonstrations, unrest etc.

    :coffee:

    this news should be fixed this way:
    Saudi Arabia Hires Israeli-Friendly Company "GS4" for Hajj Security
    nothing more expected from a British company, and nothing more expected from British poppets in Hijaz.

    Nobody asked you majoos. This does not concern you. Your kind have your temples in Qom and Mashhad.

    We will deal with your kind again if you cause any problems like back in 1987 when 300 of your terrorists were eliminated.
