Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Extends Eid Al-Fitr Holiday Break
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman issued a directive to extend this year’s Eid Al-Fitr, the end of the Holy month of Ramadan holiday.
Under the plan, government employees and military staff will receive around a full working week off to mark the holiday, which falls at the end of Ramadan.
The exact start date of Eid has yet to be officially announced, but an astronomer in Sharjah said this week that it will likely begin on Friday, June 15.
According to the directive, affected employees in the Kingdom will resume work on Sunday, June 24.
