    Well done, Somaliland Army Force and keep it.!

    “… Puntland claims to own the territory by ethnic affiliation.” Ethnically affiliation, … my nacaal! This is Somaliland territory and it will remain that way. Thus, any infiltrators or violators will mercilessly be crushed. So, make no mistake to underestimate Somaliland’s ability to defend its territorial integrity!
