However, this decision was rejected by the mayors and notables of the western mountain municipalities, who threatened to stop their dealings with the government of Abdul Hamid al-Dabaiba, in the event that they did not back down.

In a statement, the residents of the Western Mountain cities considered that the reintegration of security directorates into 3 directorates poses a threat to the social fabric that will result in sensitivities and divisions and “awaken tribal strife between cities and regions.”

The deans added that the annexation of the directorates would create a kind of tension and cause a crack in relative stability and social peace, noting that the decision ignored the geographical and social composition, according to the memorandum.

The Deans also demanded the cancellation of the decision to be circulated, considering it an attempt to tamper with the balances within the mountain, and affirmed at the same time their rejection of these divisions, as they contain trends that oppose the desire of the people in the region.
