The Border Guard has widened borders in the Northern Border Province, Tabuk, and in the Eastern Province by 20 km for security reasons.

It issued a warning that citizens and expatriates are banned from picnicking, hunting, grazing their animals or participating in any other activity within these zones for one year.

The Border Guard is following an order issued by the government dated Nov. 4, said spokesman Maj. Gen. Muhammad Al-Ghamdi in a statement on Monday.

Al-Ghamdi said the Border Guard has already started implementing the new instructions and posted signboards detailing the new zones. Violators of the ban would be punished, he said.
