Al-Salman stated: “The departure time for each procession was also determined, and the starting point was from the platform located near the crosswalk of the Qibla street of the shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), then the entrance to the Imam al-Hussayn's (p) holy shrine and then heading to the al-Abbas’s (p) holy shrine.”
And he concluded: "The paths that the processions will take, whether inside the two holy shrines or between the two shrines until they leave, have been determined. And groups of Department's staff and volunteers are being deployed to follow up on the progress of these procedures, and each procession moves according to set plan."
