Dubai and Kuwait City Light Up Green For Saudi Arabia Attack

Dubai and Kuwait City Light Up Green For Saudi Arabia Attack Victims

Just days before the end of the Ramadan, Saudi Arabia was shaken by a series of attacks on Monday.

Targeted areas included outside Prophet's Mosque in Medina (where Muhammad's tomb lies), a mosque in Shia-majority province Qatif, and a failed suicide bomb near the US consulate in Jeddah, reports the Guardian. Saudi's Mecca and Medinah are city's known to be popular at this time of year as Muslims embark on the umrah pilgrimage.

The news of multiple attacks have saddened and outraged many on social media in the lead-up to Eid Al Fitr, but the show of support from the UAE and Kuwait have comforted some. Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and Kuwait's Towers lit up green on Monday night to recognize the tragedies in the Kingdom.
