Ouled Djerir

The Ouled Djerir (Arabic: أولاد جرير) are a small Arab tribe of the Bechar area in southwestern Algeria. Their close alliance with the neighbouring Doui-Menia has led them to be counted as the "sixth fifth" of that tribe. Their economy was traditionally based on camel-herding along with a little agriculture.[1]
