[size=45]The province of Dhi Qar has witnessed, for several days, an escalation in the pace of clan violence against oil companies and civil peace, as it reached the point of shooting at workers in one of the oil projects and the death of an engineer at the work site after the clans objected to the passage of an oil pipeline in their lands.[/size]
[size=45]While the Dhi Qar Oil Company warned of the effects of tribal threats on the work of foreign companies, security sources announced the killing of a woman and the injury of other people in clan conflicts.[/size]
[size=45]A work team of engineering cadres working in the Oil Projects Company was exposed to gunfire from gunmen, as a result of which the engineer (Ahmed Ali Al-Zaidi) was killed, while hundreds of tribesmen closed the Nasiriyah oil field to demand appointments, while unknown persons shot one of the representatives of the demanding clans appointments and seriously injured him.[/size]
[size=45]The Director of the Media Department of the Dhi Qar Police Command, human rights Brigadier General Fouad Karim, told Al-Mada that "the security forces arrested the killer of the engineer (Ahmed Ali Al-Zaidi) and he confessed during the investigation of the crime," noting that "the perpetrator admitted that he had previously prevented the company's work team. Unidentified persons fired bullets at Mundhir al-Badri, one of the representatives of the tribes’ sit-in in front of the Nasiriyah oil field, from working on the land that he claims to own.”[/size]

[size=45]The statement continued, "There are groups that take a pretext from regional demands, and incite and charge against national institutions, and these acts threaten the lives of national engineering and technical cadres, which cost the state a lot for the sake of preparing and rehabilitating them," noting that "the unruly groups practice these heinous and legally condemned acts." And in recognition of her right.” The Dhi Qar Oil Company warned, in its statement, which was followed by (Al-Mada), "of the consequences of the continuation of these actions on the future of the oil industry in Dhi Qar," noting that "these actions caused the departure of large foreign companies, unfortunately, as happened with the most important American oil companies that suspended their work in Dhi Qar fields due to the repetition of these practices.”[/size]
[size=45]One of the workers in the oil companies attributes the repeated withdrawal of foreign oil companies from Iraq to several factors, including clan extortion and harassment resulting from the power and persistence of the tribesmen close to the oil fields, who are no longer satisfied with requests to appoint workers, but are even demanding the operation of secondary companies that do not have experience and are trying to impose them On the managements of oil companies, noting that “foreign workers fear for their lives when some unreasonable requests are rejected by the clans.”[/size]
