The old quarrels over water wells in the times of Abraham the Patriarch, as recorded in the Bible, were recalled by the serious quarrel which broke out today between two Arab tribes in the neighborhood of the village Valadzi. In a dispute over the rights to the only water well in the vicinity, the two tribes engaged in a battle which resulted in the death of one and the wounding of eight.
The authorities have started an investigation into the matter and have despatched a force of three officers and eighteen policeman into the district.
