FUJAIRAH, 13th September, 2015 (WAM) -- In implementation of the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, and H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras al-Khaimah, the road linking the Emirates of Fujairah and Ras al-Khaimah, has been launched and re-named as 'Martyrs Street', in memory of the martyrs who lost their lives while performing their national duty during the Saudi-led coalition 'Operation Restoring Hope' in support of the legitimate government of Yemen.
