On the background of his report accusing Saudi Arabia of committing abuses. Al-Mahrah authorities refer government official to investigation

The local authority in al-Mahra province said Monday that the report issued by the Director of the Human Rights office in the province described as an individual's conduct.

The local authority leadership of Al-Mahrah confirmed in a statement of condemnation, a copy of which was obtained by Al-Masdar online, rejects the report's "fabricated and false" accusations against the local authority and the coalition countries, accusing the report that it came at the behest of other countries.
