The Central Council of the Forces for Freedom and Change stated that "the current crisis in the country is behind limited military and civilian leaders, aiming to fail the revolution by starving the people and bringing them to their knees, bringing about security chaos, closing ports and closing roads." The council's statement added “the decision to dissolve the government is a decision owned by the forces of freedom and change, in consultation with the prime minister and the forces of the revolution, and is not made by supreme decisions.
