CJTF-HOA, U.S. Embassy celebrate Iftar in Djibouti

A Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa service member reaches for a date during an Iftar celebration at the home of U.S. Embassy Djibouti’s senior defense attaché in Djibouti, May 12, 2019. The Iftar is a fast-breaking meal Muslims have after sunset during Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year observed with daily fasting from dawn to sunset. The eating of dates is traditional at an Iftar celebration, as they provide the body with sugar to help restore low blood sugar after fasting all day. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
