The Al-Ekhbariya channel has published a video that shows the trial operation of the metro, in preparation for the approaching of the Hajj season to transport the pilgrims in the Holy Sites

It is noteworthy that due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic globally during the past two years, the train in the Holy Sites during the Hajj of the years 1441 AH and 1442 AH, witnessed an exceptional stop in its operation.

Also, Hajj during those years were limited to domestic pilgrims only from citizens and residents.

Amidst the Kingdom's preparations for Hajj 2022, several batches of pilgrims from different countries have started to arrive this week.

The first batch of this year's Hajj season arrived on Saturday through Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah from Jakarta, comprising 450 pilgrims.
