Anbar (IraqiNews.com) – An Iraqi civilian was killed and two others were wounded Tuesday in a tribal dispute in Anbar province, a security source said.

The source told Arabic-language Almaalomah news website that a number of civilians “got into a dispute using machine guns in al-Sabhani area in central Haditha, west of Anbar.”

“The clashes left one person dead and two others wounded,” the source said, adding that the injured were moved to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The Iraqi government and non-governmental organizations launched many initiatives over the past period to persuade rival tribesmen to sign petitions to stop their fighting, which claims the lives of several people daily.

Chieftains across Iraq were also urged to intervene to put an end to tribal disputes in the governorate through forcing tribesmen to hand over their weapons to the Iraqi army.

Tribal struggles are weakening efforts to reconstruct the country following the defeat of Islamic State, which occupied large parts of the country since June 2014.
