TiknikoMadaxtooyoPL1(Press Release): At approximately 5:30 a.m, on the morning of Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015, as people around the Muslim world peacefully prepared for the annual festival of Eidul-Adhha, residents from the small town of Qoriley in Northern Somalia awoke to the sounds of gunfire and heavy artillery. Reports confirm that at least 16 Khatumo civilians have been killed and dozens more injured in what appears to be state sponsored terror by the military forces of Puntland. A clan militia loyal to the regional Somali State of Puntland supported by more than 35 Technique trucks with BM’s and heavy bazookas went on a rampage to kill unarmed civilians in the Khatumo city of Qoriley.  Authorities in Garowe quickly publicized these heinous crimes as “inter-clan skirmishes”, justifying that their armed forces were on the hunt to take revenge on earlier clashes after a Puntland citizen has been killed in the area several weeks ago. However, Puntland’s current hostilities seem to have motivations far wider than just proxy clan warfare: the attack was timed to derail the outcome of Khatumo’s recent conference at Bali Cad and the implementation of khatumo’s sovereign decisions which is seen by Puntland as detrimental to its bogus claim on SSC regions.
