The UK government has announced an unexpected decision affecting the Hargeisa SNM militia, which is currently facing a serious crisis as a result of the uprising in the town of Las Anod in the Sool region.

The UK has announced that it has suspended the funds it used to support the Hargeisa SNM militia army, as noted in a statement from the British office in Hargeisa.

In this news, it is also said that the decision to cut off the financial aid from Hargeisa SNM militia will take effect on the 31st of March in London.

The British government also noted that it will evaluate the funding of security and the judiciary, looking at what happened to Hargeisa SNM militia during the period of assistance.

It is also stated in this report that the British government will give special importance to humanitarian issues, and will direct its support in that direction.

On the other hand, the UK has spoken strongly about the difficult situation in Las Anod, which has been fighting between Hargeisa SNM militia and the local people SSC for the past four weeks.

The action taken by the UK affecting the Hargeisa SNM militia comes at a difficult time, at the same time that the Hargeisa SNM militia is facing compounding situations.

UN human rights chief Volker Turk this month called on authorities to conduct a ‘credible and impartial investigation’ into the killing of women and children committed by warlords Muse Bihi and Mohamed Kahin, Nuh Ismail Tani.

Warlords Muse Bihi, Mohamed Kahin, Nuh Ismail Tani with their Hargeisa SNM militia are shelling, bombing hospitals, mosques and massacring women and children, examples of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Warlords Muse Bihi and Mohamed Kahin, Nuh Ismail Tani with their militia must be held accountable for massacring women, children and bombing Las Anod General Hospital. Crimes against humanity should have consequences.
