HARGEISA (Somalilandsun) – Tension remained high for the second day as militarily charged environment has been witnessed in the town of Badan that shares a common border with both Somaliland and Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland after the latter’s warmongering verbal utterances that necessitated prompt & rapid deployment of Somaliland’s National Defense Forces (SNDF) to counteract slight provocation from the creators of this conditional anxiety.

As reported by Hatuuf an independent local paper the town is in a state of fear due to increased military troops with Puntland deploying their soldiers under the command of Major Abdillahi Omar Ashur pitching their camp on the eastern periphery of the town, while the Eastern Division of Somaliland’s National Defense Forces dispatched a contingent of infantry troops under the command of Brigadier Guray consequently arriving two days latter & camping on the western corner of the small center.

Further reports confirm that residents are in a state of fear and an imminent outbreak of war is inevitable given the fact that the two groups are just distance apart with nothing buffering them apart affecting center’s business which now comes to closure before sunset.
