Occupied Jerusalem As the sun sets below the Mediterranean horizon, thousands of Palestinian families packed into the iftar tents run by the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Charity Foundation throughout Ramadan in the Palestinian lands.

People from refugee camps, rehabilitation and women empowerment centres as well as other neighbourhoods walked towards the iftar halls in the courtyards of Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of Rock where hot meals were served to end their fast.

Over 50,000 Palestinians have benefitted from this programme, and the local community expressed their gratitude to the UAE people and the leadership for their continued charity,
