Two Palestinian siblings were reunited by coincidence in Mecca on the first day of Eid Al Adha during Hajj after 15 years in a pilgrim camp in Mina, east of the city.
Neither Sameer or Bushra, a pilgrim benefiting from King Salman’s program that allows parents of Palestinian martyrs to go on pilgrimage to Mecca, expected to find each other in Mecca.
According to media sources, Sameer only learned that his sister is in the same camp as he was only two hours prior to meeting her, after which he proceeded to search for her with the help of the workers in the camps.
Bushra said that she did not expect to be reunited with her brother on the first day of Eid, in Mecca, saying that God had “willed this reunion.”
