Al-Taroti continued – in a video on his official Facebook page -: “I call on everyone to abide by the precautionary measures, and I say that what happened was an ordeal, because when a person is deprived of praying in his mosque, and the worshipers are deprived, it is an ordeal, and I ask the Minister of Endowments to accept this commitment, and to open the complex.
