In 2010 Puntland emerged from agitated to a fairly stable security situation. Frequent security incidents happened in Bosaso, Galkayo and, to lesser extent, in Garowe, during the first and second quarters of the year. A-shabaab insurgent group operating from Galgala and Karin Villages, on the Golis Range Mountains, about sixty and fifty kilometres south of Bosaso, respectively started fighting in this ravine landscape area. This fact triggered a fully-fledged war between the Puntland forces and the insurgents. In July this year the Puntland forces prevailed over the insurgents and the few that survived the fight fled the area.
