The Committee has taken on the supervision of Syrian hajj since 2013. Around 19,000 Syrians performed Hajj last season. The Committee is seeking to increase Syria’s quota of Hajj for the current season.

The Coalition added that it was certain that the Hajj season for this year would be a success thanks to considerable efforts and constant development in the provision of services and the effective organization.
