Various monuments will be constructed to commemorate Emirati martyrs of the Yemen war, it was reported.

Local daily The National stated that a martyrs' square and memorial will be "created in Al Alam Park at the request of the Ruler, Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi". 

"The Emirate’s municipality and planning department will oversee construction," the report continued.

"The memorial will celebrate the positive role the fallen soldiers have played in influencing the people of Ajman." 

Dubai Customs will also build a mosque to honour the "martyrs of the Emirates".
