The UAE Armed Forces on Saturday warned that loud noises - including those of helicopters, fighter planes, armored personnel carriers and speedboats - are expected to be heard in the Al Hamra area of Ras Al Khaimah, as rehearsals for the 6th edition of Union Fortress begin in the emirate, the WAM state news agency reported.

In a statement, the Armed Forces also warned against approaching the rehearsal site or taking pictures; with fishermen, boats and ships also prohibited from coming near the restricted area from sea, for safety reasons.

"Union Fortress showcases the expertise of the Armed Forces, their readiness, spirit and professionalism in a number of different live-action battle scenarios. In its 6th edition, the event, which will be held on November 1st, will be the biggest-ever public demonstration of the UAE military," the WAM report said.
