Moyale has a bloody history of inter-ethnic violence.
In March this year, a large number of Oromo refugees crossed the border into Kenya to escape the fighting.
Fighting between the two sides last year resulted in tit-for-tat killings, with at least one Garre reported dead.
In 2012, at least 18 people were killed and 12 others injured in inter-ethnic skirmishes in the town.
More than 20,000 others fled into Kenya to escape the fighting.
The endless violence the Garre and Oromo of Moyale are said to be caused by a long-standing dispute over land possession, worsened by recent droughts.
