The Special Forces for Environmental Security seized 90 tons of firewood for sale in a location surrounded by a berm in eastern Riyadh.

The location is managed by a citizen and a Sudanese violating the border security system.

This is a violation of the Pastures and Forests Law forbidding cutting down trees, and a violation of instructions that forbid the selling and transportation of firewood.

The seizure came within the framework of the campaign by the Interior Ministry, represented by the Special Forces for Environmental Security, to follow up on the marketing, selling or moving of local firewood and what is published on electronic platforms in this respect.

Maj. Raed Al-Maliki, spokesman for the Special Forces for Environmental Security, said both violators have been referred to relevant authorities to complete procedures against them.

The seized firewood was handed to the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture.

The ministry campaigns are also aimed at raising awareness, enacting legislative regulations, limiting the deterioration and destruction of vegetation cover, and reducing the extinction of some rare types of trees and occurrence of an ecological imbalance.
