Testing of the Ramadan cannons reflects Sharjah Police’s keenness to celebrate this holy occasion with the public. Eleven Ramadan cannons will be operational in various parts of the emirate for the entire month.

The cannons are popular and are regularly used during the holy month of Ramadan, preserving the Arab tradition.
