The Ministry of the Interior identified a number of security threats that prompted serious consideration of handing over the internal security file to the Ministry, and while confirming the existence of a real and serious will on the part of the government to achieve this goal, it determined the locations of the deployment of the army forces after their withdrawal from the cities.
The spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, Major General Khaled Al-Muhanna, said: "There is a real will on the part of the government to transfer the security file to the Ministry of the Interior. There are threats of drugs, organized crime, uncontrolled weapons, domestic violence and cybercrime.
He added, "These files have become serious threats to society, so there is serious thinking to transfer the security file to the police services, especially since they have the greatest potential and are currently making various kinds of preparations, whether by merging formations and increasing readiness to achieve this goal."
He continued, "There are specialized directorates in the Ministry of Interior, each of which is concerned with dealing with a specific type of crime, such as the directorates for combating drugs and human trafficking, and they are able to deal directly with the crimes and challenges that have been mentioned."
He pointed out that "the Ministry of the Interior is concerned with the file of internal security in all countries of the world, and reliance is currently being made on the intelligence aspects, and we have reached advanced stages in the matter of discovering crimes, and through that we can reach the perpetrators within hours."
He pointed out that "there is serious work in strengthening the Ministry of the Interior by the government in preparation for the handover of internal security, and the army forces that will leave the cities will be present in the camps outside them, and some of them may remain in the cities according to the required need."
