After the revolution in 2011, all governmental institutions receded from the liberated areas, leaving hundreds of thousands of civilians to administer their areas autonomously, as a result, a large gap in the administration and service were created in these areas. Therefore local councils and organizations started to emerge in order to fill the gap.
