The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh, said that the Eid Al-Fitr holiday is likely to fall on Sunday, May 24.

In a televised statement on Wednesday, May 13, Adaileh mentioned that the Mafraq's Al-Khanaseri incident ruined all arrangements and government plan to ease the curfew restrictions during the Eid holiday. 

The Minister pointed out that allowing mosques to reopen is linked to a decision by the Ministry of Health and the National Committee for Epidemics.

He indicated that the government is worried about reopening mosques because worshipers may not commit to the health instructions and social distancing.

"The Jordanian citizen showed awareness during the coronavirus crisis," the Minister affirmed.
