RIYADH: The General Authority for Meteorology and Environment Protection plans to intensify, during the month of Ramadan, inspections for potential environmental violations.

Inspection teams will also inform officials and owners of enterprises about the significant impact of environmental violations.

The authority detected several violations during its first campaign “1001” in Riyadh, before heading to the Eastern Region to ensure that industrial and development entities are abiding by regulations that protect the environment and its resources.

The campaign surveyed 2,000 kilometers from the Jordanian border to the Yemeni border. The second phase of the campaign was launched from the Saudi-Kuwaiti border, covering an area of 1,600 km.
