A huge military exercise is set to take place in the UAE on Friday, November 1.

The Ras Al Khaimah Civil Defence on Thursday released a video informing residents that the exercise will begin at 4.30pm, while doors of the venue will open to the public at 10am.

Earlier this month, the authorities issued a statement warning about loud noises - including those of helicopters, fighter planes, armored personnel carriers and speedboats - in Ras Al Khaimah's Al Hamra - as rehearsals for the 6th edition of Union Fortress began in the emirate.

The authorities also warned against approaching the rehearsal site or taking pictures, with fishermen, boats and ships also prohibited from coming near the restricted area from sea, for safety reasons.

Union Fortress showcases the expertise of the armed forces, their readiness, spirit and professionalism in a number of different live-action battle scenarios.

In its 6th edition, the event, which will be held on November 1, will be the biggest-ever public demonstration of the UAE military.
