JEDDAH: The King Salman Program for Hajj, Umrah and Visit allocated private flights for Palestinian families who had members killed by Israeli occupation forces.
These flights will carry them from Jordan and Egypt to the Kingdom to perform Hajj, by Saudi jets affiliated with Saudi Arabian Airlines.
This directive was issued after a meeting in Cairo between Dr. Zaid bin Ali Al-Dakkan, deputy chairman of King Salman Program for Hajj, Umrah and Visit, and Palestinian Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs Sheikh Yousef Adeis.
Adeis said this demonstrates the concern the Kingdom has toward the Palestinian people. He praised the continuous support of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the efforts by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance to assist Palestinian families.
