Two planes carrying Somali army troops landed in Dhusamareb district in Galgadud region ahead of the expected reconciliation conference in Dhusamareb town, sources said.
The troops are reported to be part of the security for the reconciliation conference expected to open in Dhusamareb district, however, there is a strong disagreement between the administration of Ahlu Sunna and the federal government over the preparation of the conference and security arrangements.
The Ahlu Sunna Waljama’a (ASWJ) backed by the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has taken over the control of the town of Dhusamareb.
The disagreement between the Federal Government and Ahlu Sunna is on the agenda of topics to be discussed.
The leadership of Ahlu Sunna has accused the federal government of planning to invite Dhusamareb elders from other areas who are supporters of Al-Shabaab.
