The breakaway region of Somaliland has put its troops based in the disputed region of Sool on high alert, raising new tensions, Horseed Media reports.
Somaliland officials provided equipment, medical and food supplies to the troops stationed near Gambara district, the main base of its forces in Sool region.
The Somaliland Chief of army Ismael Shaqale visited the troops to deliver the supplies on late hours of Saturday.
Horseed Media has learnt from credible sources that the Somaliland troops are gearing up to launch an attack in Tukarak town, where Puntland troops are based and some 26-kilometres North of Garowe, the capital of Puntland.
Puntland and Somaliland have had territorial disputes over the Sool and Sanag regions in the past decade, in which some occasions troops from both entities clashed.
