All parties across Dubai to celebrate New Year’s Eve and the end of 2008 were ordered to be cancelled last night.
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai made the announcement through the official WAM news agency late last night.
The order stated that Dubai will “mark the new year with a sombre tone as a token of solidarity with the Palestinian people and Gaza Strip which is currently under the barrage of Israeli military fire.”
