A 130-year-old man arrived at King Abdul Aziz International Airport on Wednesday to perform the Haj pilgrim, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). Ohi Aidros Samri, who is believed to be the oldest person to perform the Haj rituals, visited the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with six family members. Upon his arrival at the airport, Samri was received by a number of officials who welcomed him with flowers and trinkets as a gesture of good will.
In an interview with the SPA news agency, Samri and his family members expressed their gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi, and Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman for the care and services provided for pilgrims.
The Samri family also praised the facilities and services provided to them by government officials, who showered them with attention from the first moment they landed in Saudi Arabia.
