maybe has not posted yet. Perhaps security wise, it is to tighten security and reduces the threat before the oil announcement?? well, the fighting campaign may take days/weeks so, maybe oil news will only be in mid May? Though I may be wrong :)

Shabelle Media Network April 23, 2012

GAROWE (Sh. M. Network)- heavily armed forces from Somalia’s semi-autonomous state of Puntland have on Monday conducted major operations against Al shabab fighters in Galgala mountainous hide outs in Barri region.

Cabdullahi Mohammed Donyale, the security advisor of Puntland president Abdirahman Farole told reporters in Garowe town that Puntland has began this operations after Al shabab has shifted its guerilla- style warfare in Galgala, a small town that strategically located 40 Km away south of port town of Bosaso.

“I call on people in Puntland to stand firmly with the forces to avert attacks from Al shabab militants against government buildings and as well as civilian targets. Al shabab seem to bee regrouping in Galagal Mountains after they were defeated in south and centralSomalia,” he added.

Hundreds of residents in Galagala area started fleeing from the town to saver areas in Puntland in fear of battle between Punland forces and Al shabab militants.

Al shabab fighters have sought refuge in the mountainous region of Puntland which remains relatively free of local or international police or military forces. They are publicly declaring their relocation, recruitment drive and intention to oust the government of Puntland.
