The Supreme Hajj Committee begun a series of technical meetings with the aim of assessing the latest hajj season and paving the way for a new plan of action to maintain the level of work that the Syrian mission did in previous years.
Participants in the meetings included the Committee’s staff, chiefs of the Syrian hajj campaigns and their assistants, members of the religious mission and religious guides.
These meetings will also continue to include the Committee’s offices in Beirut, Amman, Cairo and the Gulf, and the liberated areas.
The participants stressed the importance of seeking to improve the quality of services provided by the Committee to the Syrian pilgrims, noting that the Syrian Hajj mission has proved itself as one of the most efficient missions in the Arab and Islamic world.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia granted the Syrian National Coalition the exclusive right to manage the Syrian hajj pilgrimage seven years ago.
The Committee effectively managed the file with Syria’s quota of pilgrims reaching 22,500 pilgrims in the latest hajj season. Another 200 Syrian nationals also performed hajj as part of a royal grant from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz to the Syrian National Coalition for the second consecutive year, which was devoted mainly to the families and mothers of people killed in the revolution.
