Here is my best explanation:

This clue might be a double definition.

'squeal' is the first definition.

Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I cannot understand how they can define each other.

'break' is the second definition.

(splitting is a kind of breaking)

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for split that I've seen before include "Divide - Croatian port", "Cleft", "Ripped", "Tear", "Break, fracture", "Cut, cleft", "Divided", "division", "Diverge" and "Break forcibly".)
