In keeping with tradition during Ramadan, Dubai Police has set up the iconic Ramadan cannons which signals the start of iftar during the month of Ramadan.
Each of the four cannons for Ramadan 2020 have been set up different locations, including Al Khawaneej, Atlantis The Palm, Burj Khalifa and Eid grounds in Al Mankhool.
The Dubai police has also announced on Twitter that there will not be any onsite spectators this year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the cannons will be shown firing at each location on DubaiOne TV, where Dubai citizens and residents can witness the tradition.
Each of the four cannons will be supervised by a team of four artillery-trained officers, and traditionally fire to signal the breaking of fast during sunset each day.
