Northern Governorate has launched a shutdown on illegal and unsafe Ramadan tents. Four tents, which didn’t have the necessary permits, were identified so far in the governorate according to Northern Municipality sources.
No permits were issued for commercial Ramadan tents this year, said the municipality warning: “Tents should not be put up without the consent of relevant parties.” A permit from the civil defense, municipal council, and other relevant parties are required to set up a tent.
“Illegal Ramadan tents pose significant fire risks without proper safety measures, “the Ministry of Interior warned.
Director of the Department of Administrative Affairs of the General Directorate of Civil Defense stressed the importance of taking precautionary measure citing the influx of people after evening prayers to these tents.
