CAIRO – 16 June 2024: The overall health of all Egyptian pilgrims remains satisfactory, affirmed the Assistant Minister of Interior for Administrative Affairs and Head of the Official Hajj Mission.

 

In a statement to the Middle East News Agency, the Head of the Mission explained that members of the medical team, as well as the medical team of the Ministry of Interior's Medical Services Sector accompanying the Hajj Lottery Mission, are currently present in the pilgrims' camps in the Mina area to provide all aspects of healthcare to the Guests of God during the Tashreeq Days. This is in coordination with the Saudi Ministry of Health.

 

In the same context, he pointed out that the Hajj Lottery Mission pilgrims continue to flow to the Jamarat Bridge in Mina to perform the Rami al-Aqaba Al-Kubra (the Grand Stoning) on the Day of Sacrifice.

 

He noted that the supervisors of the Hajj Lottery Mission camps will accompany the pilgrims in groups starting tomorrow to complete the stoning of the Jamarat during the Tashreeq Days, which begin from the second day of Eid al-Adha.

 

On Saturday evening, the Assistant Minister of Interior for Administrative Affairs and Head of the Official Hajj Mission announced the success of the Hajj Lottery pilgrims' move from Arafat to the Holy Site of Muzdalifah. He explained that the move of the Hajj Lottery pilgrims took place at the time planned by the mission, as all Hajj Lottery pilgrims left the Arafat plain with the sunset prayer.

 

He pointed out that the success of the pilgrims' move to the Holy Site in record time is attributed to the distinguished new location of the Hajj Lottery camps in Arafat, which is interspersed with bus stops. This facilitated the pilgrims' quick move from Arafat to Muzdalifah.

 

He stressed that no pilgrim other than the Hajj Lottery pilgrims will be allowed to enter the camps in Mina. He noted that the mission has adopted the electronic accommodation system for the first time this year in the mission's camps in Mina and Arafat to prevent non-mission members from entering the camps, thus ensuring that each pilgrim gets the designated space.

 

He explained that the pilgrims will be accommodated by scanning the barcode of each pilgrim, which is on their wrist bracelet, before entering their designated camp in Mina.

 

He reiterated that no pilgrim from outside the Hajj Lottery Mission will be allowed to be present inside the pilgrims' camps in Mina, and urged the Guests of God to adhere to the rules announced by the mission and to make sure to wear the identification cards and bracelets that were given to them.
