Somalia accused of fuelling Tukarak unrest

Somaliland has accused Somalia’s federal government of fueling fighting in the village of Tukarak between the self-declared republic and Puntland region.

Heavy fighting broke out on Thursday (24 May) between Somaliland and Puntland forces in Tukarak, with each side accusing the other of starting the fighting.

Somaliland Information Minister Abdirahman Guri-Barwaqo accused the rival administration of taking advantage of the situation as Somaliland deals with the aftermath of a devastating tropical cyclone that left dozens dead.

“Today, at about six in the morning, Somali federal government forces tried to attack the bases of the Somaliland national army on the outskirts of Tukarak,  while trying to take advantage of the situation on the ground,” the minister said.

The clashes come as both Somaliland and Somaliland try to deal with the effects of cyclone Sagar with hit the Horn of Africa at the weekend, leaving dozens dead and wiping out farms and livestock.

The UN says Sagar has left “massive destruction in its wake”

Somaliland authorities estimate that up to 670,000 people have been affected, with at least 25 people killed and dozens more missing.

Puntland said Somaliland started the fresh clashes in Tukarak.

Somalia’s president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has in the past called on both sides to resolve their differences through dialogue.

In January and earlier this month, Somaliland and Puntland forces also clashed in Tukarak.

Both sides both claim ownership of the village, which is located in Sool region.

Somaliland declared independence from the rest of Somalia 27 years ago but is yet to achieve any formal international recognition as a sovereign state.

  7. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.
