It supposed that the UN Special Envoy to Somaliland and Somalia Michael Keating has not shown strong position in this conflict to settle the dispute fairly and the report that he wrote to the United Nation of the Security Council, has failed to explain the Puntland and Somalia federal government aggression against Somaliland in Southern party of Sool Region (SOMALILAND) was the primary cause of this new armed clashes in the region.
Many people who live in this once Peacefull area of Somaliland are deeply concern about the deadly attacks on civilians in Southern party of Sool Region (SOMALILAND). They demand a rapid independent investigation into these barbaric attacks on peaceful civilians in Sool Region Somaliland and unashamedlyviolation of universal human rights of the people who live in Sool Region of SOMALILAND.
