A Non-Muslims entered Makkah
The official spokesman for the Makkah police said that the Saudi transported a Non-Muslim Israeli journalist to Makkah through a dedicated path for Muslims explicitly violating Saudi Law.
The Saudi man has been arrested for being referred to the public prosecution for further actions against him.
What would happen to Non-Muslim?

Tourists must respect Saudi laws, especially with regard to the Two Holy Mosques and holy sites, and any violation of this kind is considered a crime that would be punished with heavy penalties.
