Members of the clan principally live in the northwestern Somaliland region of Somalia, and the Somali Region of Ethiopia. The populations of five major cities of Somaliland -- Hargeisa, Burco, Berbera, Erigavo and Gabiley -- are predominantly Isaaq.
The Somali National Movement (Somali: Dhaq dhaqaaqa wadaniga soomaliyeed, Arabic: الحركة الوطنية الصوماليه) was a 1980s--1990s Somali rebel group. Founded and led by Isaaq members to protect the clan's interests, it was key in the formation of Somaliland, a self-declared sovereign state that is internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia.
The United Somali Congress (USC) was one of the major political and paramilitary organizations of Somalia. Formed in 1987, it played a key role in the ouster of the government of Siad Barre.
Mogadishu, the capital city of Somalia, has for nearly 20 years been a battlefield, a focus for civil war and political, tribal and social conflicts.
