Two Saudi tribes end 34-year-old rift

Hundreds of Saudi tribal leaders signed a peace treaty that ended nearly 34 years of a dispute over a land in the southern province of Asir following mediation by a royal figure, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Monday.

The signatories gave concessions in response to pleas by Asir’s Prince Khaled bin Abdul Aziz to end the dispute between the Hadi and Salman tribes from the province, 'Okaz' said.

“More than 800 tribal leaders testified to the treaty which was followed by the raising of white flags,” it said.

“The two tribes pledged to live in peace and accepted the terms of the document which handed the land to Almaniya clan from Salman tribe…they also agreed to give up their all their demands.”
