Qadisiyyah (IraqiNews.com) – An Iraqi woman was killed Wednesday in tribal clashes in al Qadisiyyah governorate, a security source was quoted as saying.
“A tribal dispute erupted Wednesday morning between two families in al-Diwaniyah, the capital city of al-Qadisiyah, leaving a woman dead,” the source told the independent news website of Baghdad Today.
“Three persons were also wounded in the clashes,” the source added.
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 were also urged to intervene to put an end to tribal disputes in the country through forcing tribesmen to hand over their weapons to the Iraqi army.
