Salman Bin Abdulaziz issued a royal grant to 1,000 relatives of Palestinian martyrs to perform the Hajj this year, Quds Press reported.
The Saudi minister of endowment, who supervise the Hajj, said
Palestinians deserve “honour and respect” because of their “great sacrifices and fight to protect Jerusalem and Palestine.”
He noted that Palestine is an Arabic and an Islamic land and this makes it necessary for Saudi Arabia to serve it and its people.
This is why the king ordered the grant for the relatives of Palestinian martyrs.
Such charitable and humanitarian work by the Saudi management shouldn’t come as a surprise since recently it was determined Saudi Arabia is the most generous among donor nations with a record allocation of SR224 billion in humanitarian aid and assistance given so far to needy countries.
The Kingdom does not differentiate in extending aid to countries on the basis of religion, race, denomination or political affiliations, which is an essential component of its foreign policy.
Besides the official donation campaigns organized by the Kingdom to support those affected in Syria and provide aid to Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey,
The Kingdom has also built about 300 housing units in Gaza.
Not only this, Riyadh has been at the forefront in extending aid to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Pakistan and Somalia, besides many other nations.
