Maurtitania's commission nationale d’observation du croissant lunaire has announced that Monday, August 12, 2019, had been declared as a non-working public holiday in Mauritania, on account of the El Id El Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania, as the "croissant lunaire du mois d’El Koue-da de l’an 1440 de l’Hégire a complété 30 jours".
The aforementioned date of Monday, August 12, 2019, is in line with the list of the dates that were announced, late last year (2018-12-25), in the list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritania for the calendar year 2019, although we expect the government of Mauritania to soon declare the day after the El Id El Adha public holiday, Tuesday, August 13, 2019, also as a non-working public holiday in Mauritania, as has been done in the past (2017-09-02, 2016-09-09, 2016-07-06, 2014-10-03, 2014-07-28).
