Issa

Jump to: navigation, search

Issa is a state of Ethiopia.

The Issas are a Somali clan (in fact, part of the Dir clan, but the remaining part is far to the south and forms a separate state Biyemal), and after the Second Great War it was decided that each Somali clan would form a separate state. Issa is largely Christian due to Ethiopian influence, while other Somali clans are more Muslim.

In the east Issa borders Ishaak, in the southeast, Northern Darod, in the southwest, Oromya, in the west Afar (all of which are states of Ethiopia), and in the north there is the shore of the sea.

Issa was taken over by the break-away government of Somalia.

Djibouti is the capital of Issa.
