(MENAFN- Saudi Press Agency)
Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Awad bin Saleh Al-Awad said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency that the cabinet stressed that the king's order to pay the sum of one billion and six hundred and sixty million riyals to beneficiaries of Social Insurance to provide their needs for the month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr reflects his keenness to provide everything that would provide a decent life for this precious category of citizens of the kingdom.
The cabinet appreciated the continuation of security measures to maintain order, deter criminals, expose those behind them and bring them to justice, pointing out in this regard to the results of investigations of the previously reported car that caught fire and exploded in Qatif, and the included results of the investigation details of the terrorist and criminal crimes committed by the two wanted people who died in the car. The council also noted the efforts of the naval forces in confronting three boats as they entered the kingdom's territorial waters, and the arrest of one of them. Investigations revealed that they had subversive targets. The cabinet reiterated the kingdom's keenness on fighting terrorism and acts of sabotage and its permanent quest to protect the homeland's security from any attack.
The cabinet considered the bombing of the three trucks belonging to King Salman Relief and Humanitarian Action Center while preparing for distribution of food aid in the city of Marib as a threat to humanitarian work as part of the siege imposed by the Houthi militia, causing many famines and disruption of medical and food assistance, stressing that such acts will not affect humanitarian and food aid provided by the center to the benefit of the Yemeni people as part of Operation Restore Hope.
The Council of Ministers renewed the kingdom's condemnation of the two explosions that took place in the capital of the Arab Republic of Egypt and in the village of Al-Diraaz, and the terrorist attack on a restaurant in the Somali capital Mogadishu. The cabinet affirmed the kingdom's solidarity with the brotherly countries, expressing condolences to the families of the victims and to the governments and peoples of Egypt, Bahrain and Somalia and wishes of recovery for the injured.
