It is traditional for those celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan to observe fasting from sunrise to sundown. JTF Guantanamo conducts safe and humane care and custody of detained enemy combatants. The JTF conducts interrogation operations to collect strategic intelligence in support of the Global War on Terror and supports law enforcement and war crimes investigations.
