Last Wednesday 15 Bedouin tribes celebrated the end of the H’jen Festival for the revival of tourism.
The festival was held at the Al H’jen Club, H’jen means breeds, west of Al-Arish city. The main activity of the festival was camel racing, which is a tradition in North Sinai.
Traditionally camel races have been used to resolve conflicts between Bedouin tribes and unite them. The competition included seven small races and the winners earned EGP 30,000 in total prize money.
