Earlier the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said there are visible chances of the Eid-ul-Fitr moon being sighted on June 15 (Friday). Free parking in Dubai will be activated on 29 Ramadan (Thursday June 14) and applies until 3 Shawaal 1439H (Sunday June 17).

The first sighting of the new moon is expected on Thursday evening, which means the country will celebrate Eid al-Fitr on Friday.

Under the plans, government and military staff will receive around a full working week off to mark the holiday.
