His Excellency Dr. Lowai Mohamed Belhoul, Director General of the Department affirmed the commemoration of the Martyrs' Day reflects the Leadership's concern to commemorate the anniversary of our martyrs who offered their blood and lives in defence of the nation and to raise the national flag high in all fields.

Dr. Belhoul added that on this occasion the United Arab Emirates takes pride in its sons who paid with their lives and are immortal examples of giving, charity, patience and loyalty. It is also a day to salute our heroes for advocating for what is right and standing with the oppressed while performing their national duty inside and outside the UAE whether in civil or military fields.

Dr. Belhoul said that on this day, we bow in respect for the sacrifices of our brave and heroic martyrs who have sacrificed their lives, praying to Allah Almighty to rest their souls in eternal peace and grant their families patience and solace.
