The spokesman for the Joint Force of Presidential Council based in the Fourth Brigade camp in the region of Wirshiffana, Abdullah Al-Fakhal, has denied the reports of the 28 dead bodies found in the Wadi Al-Hira and Al-Kassarat areas, south of Al-Aziziyah, confirming that the news was totally untrue and baseless. 

Al-Fakhal also called on all media outlets to communicate with them for any information and to clear up confusion over the force’s operations in the region against the "criminal gangs" and the so-called "Popular Front" militants, as he put it.
