Uptade Ramadan iftar cannon reignites tradition, embraces modernity

DUBAI: Waiting to hear the Ramadan cannon for iftar is a longstanding tradition in the homes of Dubai residents.

Over the years, Dubai has increased the number of iftar cannons around the Emirate, which are operated by the police.

There is one man that Dubai residents look for every year around Iftar time, Lt. Col. Abdulla Tarish Al-Amimi.

Al-Amimi has been announcing for eight years the now-familiar “fire” from the main cannon’s location, which is broadcast live on television.

Al-Amimi said it is an important tradition that has been modernized.
