January 13 2005

After the destructive battles between Qardhan village of Mughreb Ans district, in Dhamar and Bani Omer village of al-Qafr District, in Ibb, last which killed and wounded tens of tribesmen, President Saleh has issued instructions for a ceasefire.

Brigadaire Ali Mohsen al-Ahmer led a meeting with the governors of the two areas, local members of parliament and a number of sheikhs, which brought a final settlement to the conflict.

Incidents of tribal revenge have been increasing recently due to the state and security services not taking the necessary procedures against it.
