Military campaign clashing with tribal gunmen near Safar oil fields in Marib


Violent clashes broke out Tuesday between a military campaign and tribal gunmen who cut off the international line near Safer oil fields northeast of Marib province.

A military source told Al-Masdar Online that tribal gunmen from the "Hudhaylan Obeida" had cut off the international line between the areas of "Wadheeh" and "Al-Makhtam" near Safar oil fields.

The gunmen are demanding the recovery of a car seized by the army at one point several months ago and loaded with various weapons, the source added.

The 107th Brigade directed The Safer sector forces to open the line and expel tribal gunmen, and clashes continue until the time of writing (10:30 a.m.) and led to the suspension of transport vehicles and passengers, the source said.

The source reported that no casualties from the clashes had been received so far.
