Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia, held on behalf of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz the annual reception of heads of state, Islamic figures, and government officials, who performed the Hajj this year, at the Mina palace.

He congratulated the gatherers on the occasion of Eid al-Adha. He added that Saudi Arabia was proud in organizing the Hajj every year, stressing its keenness on ensuring that the pilgrims perform the rituals safely and securely.

He noted that Eid was observed as the “heinous crimes continue to be committed against our brothers in the Gaza Strip.”

“We underscore the need for an immediate end to this assault and the importance of the international community mobilizing to take all measures that protect lives in Gaza,” he added.

Crown Prince Mohammed called for implementing the recent United Nations Security Council on a ceasefire in Gaza, reiterating Saudi Arabia’s call on the international community to recognize an independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 border with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Saudi Arabia, through its humanitarian arm, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), continued airdrops of food aid to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip in cooperation with Jordan.
On Monday, an airdrop of food supplies took place in the Al-Mawasi area, west of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, where hundreds of thousands of displaced people are located.

“It was carried out in cooperation with the Jordanian Armed Forces with the aim of breaking the Israeli occupation forces’ closure of border crossings,” the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The airdrop was part of the popular campaign for relief for the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, which was directed by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
