    Beledweyne (Somali: Beletweeyne, Arabic: بلد وين‎, Italian: Belet Uen) is a city in central Somalia. Located in the Beledweyne District,.It is the capital of the Hiiraan province. The town is situated in the Shebelle Valley near the Ethiopia border, some 210 miles (345 km) north of Mogadishu. Beledweyne is divided by the Shebelle River into eastern and western sections. In 2019, Safiya Jimale became the first female mayor in Somalia.


    During the Middle Ages, Beledweyne and much of the surrounding area in southern Somalia was governed by the Ajuran Empire. The town later came under the administration of the Hawadle Sultanate in the late 17th century after the collapse of the powerful Ajuran Empire. At the turn of the 20th century, Beledweyne was incorporated into Italian Somaliland protectorate. After independence in 1960, the city was made the center of the official Beledweyne District.

    During the 2006–2009 phase of the civil war, the internationally backed Transitional Federal Government (TFG), supported by Ethiopian troops, seized control of the town from the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) in the Battle of Beledweyne in 2006. However, by the end of 2008, the radical Islamists had regrouped and Al-Shabaab, a splinter outfit of the ICU, had retaken all of the city in addition to much of southern Somalia.
