Jijiga, May 3, 2020 – New fighting started outskirts of Salahad in yesterday morning just after Liyu Police vacate the area for unjustified reason.
The report said there are death and injuries of both groups. Clan elders called parties to refrain a nonsense fighting that nobody gets benefits rather a loss.
This area had recurrent clan conflict for the last twenty years. Three months ago a similar fight occurred here while regional administration deployed security forces to stop rows.
It’s not clear why the Somali regional administration evacuates the security forces without establishing sustainable peace with two clans.
Since Ethiopian military army had forced to step down the powerful head of Somali regional administration Abdi Mohamoud Omar (Abdi-Iley) region faces clan conflicts with security instability.
