MADINAH: Under the supervision of Madinah Gov. Prince Abdul Aziz bin Majed, chairman of the Haj Committee in the holy city, all bodies involved in Haj services work day and night to provide the visiting pilgrims with all facilities to enable them to pay homage to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and pray at his mosque.

A report issued by the secretariat general of the committee said that 10,068 pilgrims arrived in Madinah on Monday via Prince Muhammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport, while 35,270 left for Makkah.

The report said until Monday, a total of 914,335 pilgrims arrived in Madinah and 767,196 left for Makkah, leaving behind 147,139 visiting pilgrims.

The report said Pakistanis, with 41,093 pilgrims, constituted the largest number of visitors, followed by 34,653 Bangladeshis and 17,540 Indians.

Meanwhile, the housing unit of the committee continued the implementation of its plan aimed at thoroughly checking all the buildings to make sure that they were well prepared for the accommodation of visitors.

Under the plan, the unit inspects the readiness of the buildings to be rented by visitors from the aspects of proper construction, cleanliness, hygiene, safety measures, electricity connections and the continuous availability of water.

On the other hand, the committee's unit of follow-up and coordination held a meeting Monday evening to coordinate reception of pilgrims coming to Madinah by road after the Haj.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the private establishment of guides, the police, the Civil Defense Directorate, the Saudi Red Crescent, the ministries of Haj and health, the office to guide and direct buses and the National Water Company.

The unit made plans to group and classify pilgrims before they arrive in Madinah, so that they are easily accommodated and transported.
