At least 15 people have been killed in a deadly clan-related violence in Northern Somalia on Wednesday, residents confirm.
The battle between local clan militias broke out in Qoriley village of the Northern Sool region in the early morning hours of Wednesday. Reasons that led to the fighting is still unclear but reports say that it is related to land disputes and pasture.
Residents and other sources have told Horseed Media that at least 15 people died during the fighting, including militias from both clans and dozens injured.
The clash between the two rival clans has been going on for so long following a land dispute, while the local elders been able to mediate between the groups, a lasting ceasefire has never been achieved, reliable sources added.
Since the collapse of the Central government in 1991, Water, pasture and politics have been at the center of sporadic clashes between Somali tribes across the country.
