The entire population of Djibouti is 640,000 and of that 76% are urban dwellers. The rest nomads.

These are UN facts. I don't do my qabil is bigger than yours thing. If that was the case, I do suggest that Burao was bigger than Bossasso.

These are legit facts kids. I do only facts.

UN facts ehh :up:
I'd say Hargeisa and its environs is about 700k maybe. Burco is a very large town, if its larger than Bossaso so be it, its all Somalia.
Xamar looks ruined.

Third pic is not Boosaaso, its Mogadishu. Also How can Mogadishu be 1.4 million while Hargeysa is 40 % of the size of Xamar.

The three largest somali towns. Fact.

Xamar
Djibouti
Hargeisa

They are shanty towns though. I would be embarassed if any of those places have more than 1 million. You cant completely bulldozed those cities. For every structure built in those cities we are further from solving our problems

There is no WAY hargeisa is 4X the size of Bosaso. I think it is at most 500,000
