Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Director of the General Department of Organisation Protective Security and Emergency, wished all residents, tourists, and citizens a Eid Mubarak.

Maj. Gen. Al Ghaithi, continued that Dubai Police strives to keep the tradition alive as the shooting of cannons announces officially the end of Ramadan and celebrates the beginning of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.
