Sharjah, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has announced a ban on New Year’s Eve fireworks in a gesture of solidarity with the people of Gaza. The decision, which was met with mixed reactions, comes in the wake of a recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Sharjah police announced on their Facebook page, stating that the ban is “a sincere expression of solidarity and humanitarian cooperation with our siblings in the Gaza Strip.” They also condemned the attack that sparked the conflict and called for the release of hostages taken captive by Hamas.

The decision was made by the ruler of Sharjah, Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, who said that he wanted to send a message of peace and compassion to the world. He also urged other countries and cities to follow his example and cancel their fireworks plans, saying that they should instead focus on helping the victims of the conflict and promoting dialogue and coexistence.

The decision to cancel the fireworks display has been met with praise from some residents who see it as a way to show support for the Palestinians. Others, however, have expressed disappointment, arguing that the ban will dampen the праздничный spirit of the occasion.

Sharjah’s decision is unique among the UAE’s emirates. Other emirates, such as Dubai, are still planning to hold their traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations, which include elaborate fireworks displays.
