Saudi removes 'Muslims only' signs from highway to Madinah

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Saudi Arabian authorities appeared to have replaced the "Muslims only" phrase from traffic signs leading to the Prophet's Mosque in Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, Islam's second holiest site after Makkah.

Images have been shared on social media purporting to show that at least one of the highway signs now reads "Haram area" in reference to Madinah's Haram or sacred site.
