59. In December 2018, fighting broke out between the ISIL faction and Al-Shabaab in Bari region for the first time since early 2016, centred on crucial water sources in the mountainous areas of Bari region (see annex 1.9). Intense conflict between the ISIL faction and Al-Shabaab had been ongoing since November 2018, when both groups appear to have begun competing to extort businesses in Mogadishu and Puntland. Eleven employees of Hormuud Somalia Inc., the largest telecommunications company in Somalia, were killed during November 2018 in Mogadishu by gunmen reportedly affiliated with ISIL and Al-Shabaab.
