Somaliland is threatening to retake 179km of land by force after the war on Friday, August 25, 2023, which is part of the Sool region where the SSC-KHAATUMO and SOMALILAND forces were fighting.
On August 25, 2023, the local people succeeded in evicting Somaliland from their border area, where Somaliland’s forces suffered heavy losses, on the other hand, Somaliland admitted that its forces suffered large losses, and more than a hundred weapons and military vehicles were seized.
After 12 days of war, Somaliland was expelled from Sool region, it is now threatening a strong invasion, while the ICRC says it is still collecting the bodies of Somaliland soldiers who died in the war last Friday.
The ICRC also said that there are 360 prisoners captured by the Somaliland army, while hundreds of bodies have been buried.
It is impossible to know what might happen if a war breaks out again in the areas of Sool, while people who are experts in the military and wars say that it is difficult for Somaliland to recover from the losses suffered in the war on Friday, August 25, 2023.
