Earlier tonight, Saudi authorities announced that the Moon of the month of Shawwal had been sighted and therefore that tomorrow, Friday, June 15, 2018, would be the date of the 2018 Eid-ul-Fitr in Saudi Arabia.
Earlier this month (2018-06-07), King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, has somewhat surprisingly announced that the upcoming 2018 End of Ramadan (Eid al Fitr) non-working public sector holidays in Saudi Arabia would only begin on June 15 (the expected date of the 1st day of the month of Shawwal) and last until June 23, 2018, inclusively.
