Saudi Arabia has mounted 5,909 cameras in Mina and other strategic locations to monitor pilgrims’ movement during the 2019 hajj exercise.

Brig. Samiyya Shuwera, spokesperson of Saudi public security, disclosed this on Thursday at a joint press conference addressed with ministry of Hajj and Umrah, Health, Security and Saudi Civil Defence.

He said the whole security arrangement monitored by command and control has 5,909 cameras which give movement of all pilgrims.

Brig. Shuwera noted one of their six major security points is to make sure that all pilgrims have license for hajj to pass through the route.

“We have turned back more than 15,000 from our various points for lack of security license,” he said, adding:

“We have also arrested 200,000 vehicles who have no license.

“Human factor is prominently figured in our plan. There is no Hajjih without license and we shall abide strictly by this,” he cautioned.

Brig. Shuwera said public security has seven major plans and sub-plans and it will be followed strictly for the interest on the Hajjis.
