A source close to the mediation team revealed the refusal of the UAE leadership to withdraw its elite Shabwanian forces from the city of Ataq to end the tension with the security and the army, and that the situation in the city has intensified.
The source said that the team was surprised by the refusal of the UAE leadership of the proposal to withdraw the forces of the so-called “elite” from the city, in order to end the tension.
The tension started when the elite forces spread in the city without coordination with the security committee.
The source stressed that the team was shocked by the refusal of Emiratis in “Balhaf” to calm the tension, pointing out that the UAE leadership – through its rejection – seeks to create chaos in the province.
The source said that the army and security forces are preparing and raising their readiness and declaring a state of emergency after the intransigence of the UAE leadership.
