Rajay Sanduka has been responsible for firing the Ramadan cannon in Jerusalem for 25 years. Every day during the month-long holiday, the cannon is fired to mark the beginning and end of the fast. Rajie inherited the job from his father, while responsibility for the cannon has been passed down in his family since the Ottoman Empire period.
