I Will Host Every Qatar Pilgrims At My Own Expense-- Qatar King

Saudi Lord Salman bin Abdul Aziz has requested that Hajj pioneers from Qatar be permitted to enter Saudi Arabia, where he has offered to have them at his own particular cost. 

The move takes after allegations that Saudi experts were thwarting the section of Qatari explorers into Saudi Arabia, where a huge number of Muslims are set to play out the Hajj journey not long from now. 
Since early June, Qatar has been the objective of a land, ocean and air ban by a four-country alliance of Bedouin states drove by Saudi Arabia. 

In a clear reaction to the allegations, the official Saudi Press Office (SPA) detailed late Wednesday that Ruler Salman had "consented to proposals made by Crown Sovereign Mohammed container Salman with respect to the section of Qatari explorers into the [Saudi] kingdom by means of the Salwa arrive outskirt intersection to play out the Hajj".

The king, the news agency added, had consented to allow “all Qatari citizens who wish to perform the Hajj [into the kingdom] without required electronic permits”.
According to the SPA, the king’s decision was “based on the mediation efforts of Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali bin Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, a member of Qatar’s ruling family who was received by bin Salman in Jeddah on Wednesday”. 
The news agency went on to report that King Salman had dispatched a Saudi Airlines aircraft to Doha’s international airport “to transport all Qatari pilgrims at his own expense to the city of Jeddah”. 
Last month, Qatar's National Human Rights Committee told the UN’s special rapporteur on religious freedom that Hajj pilgrims from Qatar were being discriminated against by the Saudi authorities. 
Committee head Ali bin Smeikh al-Marri called on the Saudi authorities to “facilitate Hajj procedures and remove restrictions” facing Qatari pilgrims. 
On June 5, four Arab states -- including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Emirates and Bahrain -- abruptly cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism.
Saudi Arabia also closed its land border with Qatar, geographically isolating the tiny Gulf state.
Doha, for its part, strenuously denies accusations that it supports terrorism, describing attempts to isolate it as “unjustified” and in breach of international law.
