Drones will be used for the first time in the Grand Mosque in Makkah to manage the crowd in Ramadan, local daily Al-Madina reported on Wednesday quoting deputy commander of the Umrah forces Maj. Gen. Mohammed Al-Ahmadi. This will be implemented through better coordination and a bit of technology.

According to him, the deputy commander of the Umrah forces, this year’s management plan for Umrah involves security, organizational, and humanitarian aspects, Saudi Gazette reported.

The publication further noted that “any pilgrim or visitor who shows any sign of distress will not be allowed to enter the Grand Mosque for their own safety and that of others.”

Visitors or pilgrims will not be allowed to enter the Haram plazas with their luggage, he added.

In addition to the drones and security aircraft, there will be about 2,500 cameras to monitor the crowd’s movement inside the mosque.
