According to the Council, the force verbally attacked the security units and physically attacked the citizens and used force, which led to the injury of citizens of the area, adding that this led to great tensions.

The Council added that one of its members suffered a gunshot wound after heading to areas of tension with elders from the region, which contributed to the worsening of the situation before it was brought under control again, according to the statement.
