At least twenty Yemeni pilgrims killed in accident on return from Mecca

The Ministry of Guidance and Hajj and Umrah Affairs expressed its condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible accident that Yemeni pilgrims in Asir were exposed to while returning from performing Umrah rituals, in which more than twenty pilgrims were killed and injured.

The statement affirmed that the intransigence of the Saudi regime and its politicization of Hajj and Umrah and its closure of Sanaa International Airport and the land crossings borders has caused crowding of pilgrims and Umrah performers at one route, which is far and unprepared.

The Ministry denounced the Saudi regime’s continued politicization of Hajj and Umrah and the complications practiced by mercenaries, which confirms the incompetence and ability of the Al Saud regime to manage the holy sites, as it continues to involve the Two Holy Mosques and Islam rituals in its political conflicts.
