Fujairah — His Highness Shaikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, on Wednesday opened the Armed Forces Martyrs’ Mosque in the emirate.

The Fujairah Ruler unveiled the memorial plaque of the mosque and performed the Dhuhr (midday) prayer along with worshippers.
