"Forces belonging to what is known as Abbala attacked Al-Siraif locality on Saturday from three directions with heavy weapons, ridding in some 30 vehicles and on over 3,000 horses and camels," Al-Fatih Al-Sayer, the witness, told Xinhua by phone.

"Preliminary statistics indicate that 53 people were killed, including five children and seven women, and 83 people injured," he said, adding that the attackers looted more than 4,000 goats and 2,000 cattle.

Similar tribal clashes took place in early January between Bani Hussein and Abbala tribes at Jabel Amer of Al-Siraif locality due to disputes over gold mines in the area, where some 100 people got killed.
