HH the Emir praised on three-year anniversary of power handover

Last Saturday marked the three-year anniversary of one of the most peaceful middle east leadership transitions in recent years.

On June 25, 2013, Qatar’s longtime ruler Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani handed over power to his son HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

The last three years have been challenging ones for HH Sheikh Tamim, but the people of Qatar appear to believe in the new Emir.

Over the past few days on Twitter, hundreds have been posting messages of support for his reign under the hashtags #تميم_بن_حمد (Tamim bin Hamad) and #الذكرى_الثالثة_لتوالي_امير_قطر_الحكم (the third anniversary of the Emir’s rule).
