According to the order, Abu Mousa Street will be in Mushairif district, the Greater Tunb in Al Jurf and the Lesser Tunb in Al Humaidiya.

The move reflects the UAE’s sovereignty over the occupied Islands and the keenness of the Ajman Ruler to inculcate them in Emirati citizens.

Shaikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, head of the Department of Municipality and Planning in Ajman, has instructed the Engineering Affairs Section at the civic body to implement the directives to rename the streets.
