JEDDAH: Egypt’s top religious institution praised King Salman’s efforts for the Palestinian cause, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday.

Al-Azhar praised King Salman’s decision to name the latest Arab League Summit the “Jerusalem Summit” in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The institution also welcomed the king’s decision to dedicate $50 million to UNRWA and $150 million to the Islamic Endowment Support Program in Jerusalem.

In his opening remarks at the summit held in the eastern Saudi city of Dammam, the king said: “The Palestinian issue will remain our top issue until all Palestinians get their legal right to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

“As we reiterate our condemnation and rejection of the American administration’s decision concerning Jerusalem, we commend the international consensus that rejects it, and we affirm that East Jerusalem is an inalienable part of the Palestinian territory.Al-Azhar backs King Salman’s initiatives on Palestine

Riyadh plane-spotters treated to National Day fly-past by Saudi Royal Air Force

RIYADH: Keen plane-spotters were treated to a display from the Saudi Royal Air Force on Monday in the skies over Riyadh, to mark Saudi National Day.
A group of fighter jets — Typhoons, Torinos, F15s, F15Cs and MRTTs — were painted in green and adorned with Saudi Arabian livery and performed a fly-past.
Those who could not get to Riyadh will have another chance to see the procession as it will be flying over parts of the eastern region on Tuesday, including the King Fahd Causeway, Al-Khobar Corniche and Al-Aqeer.
