Six Executed, Nine others Harmed as Adversary Forces Conflicted in Somalia
Six executed, nine others harmed as adversary Forces conflicted in Somalia
No less than six warriors have been murdered and nine others injured in conflicts between forces from two neighboring towns in northern Somalia.
Strains between the Puntland and Galmudug areas took off a month ago after Galmudug said a US strike aimed at Shabaab jihadists had killed 13 of its warriors.
It blamed neighboring Puntland for bolstering the US false data that prompted the air strike.
Be that as it may, representative for the Galmudug organization, Mohamed Hassan Sahal, the battling broke out in an argument over land.
The US Africa Command (AFRICOM) confirmed carrying out a “self-defence” strike near the town of Galkayo on September 28, when al-Qaeda linked Shabaab fighters attacked a Somali force and their US advisors.
“Since that incident, Puntland got threats from al-Shabaab and Galmudug… to retaliate for the death of the terrorists killed in the attack.
