He also dismissed the Attorney General at the Military Appeals Board in Ouargla, Colonel Farid Tawil, who was replaced by Colonel Abdul Quddus Halaymeh.

Tawil was appointed to the same position at the military board in Oran.

The Algerian interim president dismissed military commanders in four military areas in late July.
