Saudi security men greet foreign evacuees in their own languages

The ongoing massive evacuation operation from Sudan is the best example of Saudi Arabia’s role as the "Kingdom of humanity".
Riyadh has mobilized all its resources to ensure the safe evacuation of hundreds of people trapped in conflict-hit regions of Sudan on a daily basis. As of Friday, the total number of people evacuated from Sudan reached around 3000.

The Kingdom is keen on ensuring the comfort of evacuees by making available all the facilities and services for them. The Saudi authorities have made necessary arrangements in this regard, including ways to overcome the language barrier by facilitating means of proper communication with the evacuees.

Saudi security men greeted foreigners in their languages on arriving in the country. The Royal Saudi Navy officers welcomed several Chinese and other nationals in Chinese and English upon their arrival at Jeddah Islamic Port.

Social media users circulated video clips showing Saudi soldiers according warm welcome to the evacuees, greeting them in their own languages. Several members of the security forces, who spoke multiple foreign languages, have been deployed at Jeddah airport and seaport to welcome the evacuees from different countries. The security personnel acquired proficiency in several languages while serving the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims from all over the world.

Meanwhile, a new batch of 195 evacuees landed in Jeddah on Friday. This brings the total number of evacuees from Sudan since the beginning of the massive evacuation operation reached 2991. These included 119 Saudi citizens and 2872 others from 80 nationalities.

Those who arrived on Friday at Jeddah Islamic Port on board HMS Makkah included the nationals of Pakistan, Palestine, Thailand, Mauritania, Sri Lanka, USA, Poland, India, UK, Austria, Indonesia, Canada, Iraq, Egypt, Australia and Syria. Earlier on Friday, 52 people from the United Kingdom, South Africa, Russia, Ghana, Lebanon, USA, Niger, Bangladesh, Libya, Canada, and Guinea arrived in Jeddah on board HMS Jubail.

Saudi Arabia started the evacuation operation in line with the directives of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman as soon as the conflict started on April 15. Fighting between the Sudan Armed Forces led by Lt. Gen. Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces of Lt. Gen. Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo prompted the countries of the world to evacuate their nationals, while tens of thousands of people fled from the conflict zones to the neighboring countries, mainly Chad and Egypt.

According to the Sudanese Ministry of Health, a total of 512 people were killed and 4,000 wounded in the clashes.
