The first group of pilgrims from Turkey arrived to Medina on Saturday night to perform Hajj this year, where they were received by the deputy chairman of the National Adillah Establishment, which is the Saudi agency in charge of coordinating all pilgrims activities in Medina.

Deputy Chairman Essam Demyati, along with other staff members, gave the arriving pilgrims Zamzam water and flowers. Demyati said that the pilgrims are welcome “in their second home” confirming that everyone in the kingdom works to serve and comfort the pilgrims “with great honor”.


Meanwhile, the coordinator of the Turkish pilgrims’ envoy thanked the government and the people of Saudi Arabia for their warm welcome and great service provided for the pilgrims since their arrival to the airport in Medina up until they reached their place of residence.

The coordinator added that what Saudi Arabia is doing is “widely appreciated and a source of pride for all pilgrims, especially Turkish ones.”
