Sool, Sanaag, and Cayn, Unionist SSC Against the secessionist Isaaq Tribe
Sool, Sanaag, and Cayn Regional Administration (SSC) lies in the northern part of Somalia. The SSC is defending its boundaries against the naked aggression of the secessionist Isaaq tribe in the north who are working on the secession of parts of northern Somalia (parts of ex British Somaliland Protectorate territories).
The majority tribes in the north the Dhulbahnte, Samaroon, Essa, and Warsangeli and others are strongly against the secession. The Isaaq tribe is a minority in northern Somalia. However, the Isaaq has been arming themselves for some time, starting with the rebellion against the collapsed Somali Government in the 1980s.
In order for them defend themselves against the expansionist and secessionist tribe, the other northern tribes began establishing autonomous regional states and defensive armies.
Nonetheless, all northern tribes and communities except the Isaaq are prepared for reconciliation and political dialogue to resolve the deadlock.
