Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed ‘Farmaajo’ has urged the warring sides in Heraale conflict to stop the bloodshed immediately and come to the negotiating table to solve their differences.
President Farmaajo said the ongoing conflict in the area is uncalled for and there is need to stop further human casualty and destruction of property. He said they are planning to send a fact finding committee to the area to investigate the cause of the fighting.
He said it is unfortunate to hear the news of new clashes in the Galgaduud and promised that his administration will take every suitable step to stop the conflict.
“The government cannot accept to see the conflict continue and its people to suffer and become victimized,” he added, while sending condolences to the families and relatives of the victims in the clashes.
The clashes are reportedly between two militia groups allied to Ahlu Sunna Wal Jama’a and Galmudug respectively.
