Hargeisa (SC) – Heavy fighting has raged in the outskirts of Sool town of Daba-taag in the southern of Lasanod. More than a dozen clan militiamen have been killed in the heavy clashes between Bahararsame and Qayaad clans.
The ongoing battle broke out after recurring conflicts on water and pasture between the opposing clans.
15 people have been reportedly killed on Sunday clashes, leaving many of the opposing clans wounded. This has forced many civilians flee to the surrounding areas.
Despite the recurrent warring militias, there have not been any mediation endeavors that have been embarked on to secure an immediate ceasefire.
The minister of Interior Affairs Faraton, who hails from Sool region, has made no comment on the warring militia clans so far despite calls for calm by residents in Lasanod and its vicinities. The residents also called the government to deploy troops to quell the deadly inter-clan skirmishes.
