From SAAD MUSE in Mogadishu, Somalia
MOGADISHU, (CAJ News) RENEWED clashes deeply rooted in regional and clan rivalries has left some 22 Somalians dead and thousands displaced.

The violence stems from the conflict between the Galmudug interim administration, that was established in 2015, and Puntland.

The town of Galkayo lies on the fault line of that conflict.

On October 7, 2016, forces from Puntland, which controls the north of the town, and Galmudug, which controls the south, clashed in the Garsoor area where a “green line” divides the two administrations.

The latest outbreak of fighting comes nearly a year after another face-off between the two regional forces.

Once again, civilians are paying a heavy price.

According to the United Nations, at least 75 000 people have fled, including those living in displacement camps.
A civil war that has raged for over 25 years has exacerbated the situation.
