Makkah (UNA-OIC) – More than 60,000 head of sheep have been slaughtered since the first day of Eid al-Adha through Thursday, within Saudi Arabia’s Project for the Utilization of Hadi and Sacrificial Meat (Adahi), during the Hajj season.
The sheep slaughtering process was carried out amid integrated preparations and equipment at the slaughterhouses in Mina, and under strict health measures and preventive precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The work of the project is running smoothly in accordance with the operational plans to serve the pilgrims and facilitate their performance of the Hajj rituals, in addition to responding to the demands of all Muslims for sacrificial meat.
The project has launched an electronic link system with a number of electronic platforms related to Hajj affairs. With the unlimited support of the wise leadership, the project achieved a great leap in the completion of its work through the establishment of eight modern high-tech slaughterhouses, including seven sheep slaughterhouses and one slaughterhouse for camels and cattle, with an area of nearly one million square meters, and a capacity of 1.5 million sheep and 10,000 head of camels and cattle.
