Al Dhaid Municipality, in coordination with Sharjah Police, demolished illegal warehouses, rooms and animal barns which were newly built by a farm owner on government land in Al Dhaid area.

The team of legal department, police and municipality carried out the demolition.
He explained that the illegal buildings which were removed include warehouse built of bricks, storage rooms, and 5 sheds in different areas. "The demolition operation continued for two days," he said.
The municipality urged owners of farms and public to avoid such kinds of violations and refrain from carrying out illegal construction on government property.
