An eyewitness told Somalilandpress that the clashes began midday in the Mar-mar mountains in Awdal region close to the Ethiopian border after the militants were surrounded.
The USA and French forces stationed in Djibouti are cooperating with Somaliland authorities on any such smuggle of ONLF militant from Asmara, Eritrea into Somaliland seawater.
The Author is trying to create instability in western regions of Somaliland, Gabiley & AWDAL, which will enable ONLF terror group to establish save-transit point from Eritrea to Ethiopia. In order to achieve save transit point, ONLF militant crossed the border from Ethiopia into Somaliland and murdered innocent people sleeping inside their homes at Seemaal town of AWDAL region in cold blood.
This ONLF attempt was to add insult to old injuries between Somaliland tribes of AWDAL and Gabiley (Western Somaliland) which is, also, the smuggling path for ONLF. If the two tribes fight then ONLF could use the region for smuggling fighters, but that is not possible from the peaceful people of Somaliland.
Moreover, ONLF used their media like (Wardheer News) to shed crocodile tear over the death of the innocent people in Seemaal Town.
After ONLF killed the people, the elected President of Somaliland Mohamed Siilaanyo instructed the police to arrest the beasts. The Police, Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Army are working on arresting everybody suspected of having links in the incident.
The justice will prevail and killers will be brought to justice regardless of the crocodile tear of ONLF. Somaliland authorities are coordinating with their Ethiopian counterparts on arresting the criminals.
Let us all wait and see the security report on the incident, which will illustrate many hidden dirty agendas of ONLF against the stability and development in Somaliland.
The Somaliland Cabinet, Parliament and their people of Somaliland criticized the killing and called for arrest . The Somaliland Justice System, which is known for its integrity, will ensure justices for all.
