 Obeida tribes have stopped work on a number of oil wells in the Safer oil fields in Marib Governorate, demanding the payment of the debts of the former Al-Alam front commander who was martyred during confrontations with the Houthi militia.

Local sources said that the Damascene tribes, led by one of Sheikh Nasser bin Aushan's sons, closed a number of oil wells on Tuesday, to pressure the Ministry of Defense to pay the debts of Nimran bin Aushan, the former leader of the Al-Alam Front.

The tribes published a circular to the employees and guards of the wells closed by them not to operate any well until the debt problem was resolved, which was withdrawn from the custody of the martyr leader Nimran Nasser bin Aushan. According to the text of the circular.

According to the sources, the tribe accuses leaders in the Ministry of Defense of procrastinating in paying the debts of Aushan, which he made while leading the Al-Alam Front.

This escalation by Damascus coincides with the passing of the first anniversary of the martyrdom of the former leader of the Al-Alam Front during confrontations with the Houthi militia on September 11, 2020.
