700 volunteers working at Prophet’s Mosque as pilgrims throng Madinah ahead of Hajj





Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah is witnessing continuous arrivals of flights carrying pilgrims from all over the world.

Many of the pilgrims are keen to visit Madinah before performing the Hajj rituals to pay respect to the Prophet (pbuh) and pray in his mosque, and to visit other mosques and historical sites in the Prophet’s City.

Authorities receive pilgrims at the airport with roses and dates, and their entry procedures proceed smoothly and efficiently. As a result of the influx, no less than 700 volunteers are already working at the Prophet’s Mosque.

Al-Zahrani said the operational capacity of the Prophet’s Mosque and the surrounding squares will be increased to keep pace with the rise in the number of worshippers. Some 700 volunteers are also working at the Prophet’s Mosque.

He noted that the SRCA plan makes use of the region’s Command and Control Room and that medical services start from the moment they are required by people calling 997 or using the Asafny app.

The requests for medical help are then forwarded to the nearest ambulance team through the Emergency Medical Services Program for assessment and, if needed, transfer to the nearest hospital. — SPA
