The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) has called for preservation of the environment and avoidance of any violation that harms its safety.

The ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that it will carry out patrols and also monitor videos and images shared on social media related to environmental violations. The ministry noted that the Department of Wildlife Protection caught one person in the act of violating some of the environmental laws adopted by the state, after he appeared in a video where he appeared to use a device to attract birds and use them for hunting in one of the wild areas. They noted that the violation was referred to security authorities to take the necessary measures.

A ministerial decision released on September 10, 2018, regulated hunting in the wildlife. One of those regulations was the ban of certain hunting devices that attract birds.
