TEHRAN – Police Chief Brigadier General Hossein Ashtari told reporters in Tehran on Saturday that his forces would provide full security for citizens traveling to Iraq for the Arbaeen pilgrimage later this month.

Pointing to security arrangements for the upcoming pilgrimage, Ashtari said the police started to take security measures several months ago, Tasnim reported.

The measures aim to facilitate the passage of pilgrims and ensure their security, he said, adding that this year, the police have increased the number of gates to speed up the passage of pilgrims.
