In today’s news papers

Exciting summer packages from the Qatar National Tourism Council or QNTC, for staycations right here in Qatar.

You can enjoy a host of hotel deals including up to 50% off room reservations. Stay 2 nights get a 3rd night free, free diner for a booking of 3 nights or more, complimentary breakfast and there’s 25% off spa services as well.

Qatar Museums is offering 20% off their culture pass program. And there are loads of outdoor activities on offer including kayaking, fishing, paratriking, scuba diving, desert safaris and desert camping.

With all of that on offer who needs to fly anywhere.

Over 400 computers are to be provided for self-isolation residences in labor cities. As part of the Ministry of Transport and Communications  ‘Better Connections’ program.

The General Directorate of Traffic yesterday tweeted; That information circulating on some platforms regarding, changes in speed limits on Qatar roads. Is not correct. And motorists are being advised to follow the speed limits that are in place.

Almoez Ali is eligibal to play for Qatar. Says the Court of Arbitration for Sport or CAS. This dismisses an appeal by the United Arab Emirates. Who complained that Ali was not eligible to play in their 4-0 semi-final defeat back in 2019. The decision by CAS backs up the decision by both the AFC Disciplinary and Ethics Committee, and the AFC Appeal Committee in dismissing the UAE protest.
