According to UNHCR’s latest report from November 18, the number has increased to over 27.000 people.

Ethiopia and Sudan are working to support people displaced by the Tigray region’s armed conflict and help to return to their homeland, Ethiopia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry announced on Friday.

The Ethiopian Ambassador to Sudan, Yibeltal Aemro, reported that a national committee was established to repatriate Ethiopians who fled to Sudan. The official also pointed out that the government is working with the United Nations Refugee Agency and other international organizations to provide humanitarian assistance.

The ambassador explained that citizens could return through Tigray’s western part, which has been recovered from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). Likewise, the government is cautious of TPLF members from entering Sudan covered up as migrants.

Last week the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) reported that at least over 11.000 people, half of them children, had fled to neighboring Sudan. However, according to UNHCR’s latest report from November 18, the number has increased to over 27.000 people.

  1. Axum, Adwa and Adigrat are all in the bag now. It ain’t the good ole days of the dumb bell Mengistu’s time!!! Those are days gone by. This time it is all crafty Dinagde, Mekaeel(Mohammed Ali), Mekonen grandson of Guddisa, Tekle of Gojjam, Taytu in tow, Seyoum chugging along, fire spitting Gambelas, Sidamas, Somalis, Afars you name it. I ran out of breath just counting. They are doing nothing out of line but just good housekeeping. There is also rampart news circulating in the hoods of Tigray and Addis/Finfine that the head honchos who stole the TPLF have fled leaving the gullible youth in their militia to fend for itself. Some of them might have reached their destination in Al-Qahirah. This is just becoming a carbon copy of what Baratieri did in 1896. After marching the gullible youth into an awaiting inferno and when he realized my Niggaaz are all over his ‘Supremacist’ $$$ he turned around and ran like a rabbit leaving the youth without a leader. Bigots, you know!!! They are the same everywhere.

    O’ My Beloved Country!!! O’ Ethiopia I Still Love You To Death!!!
    O’ You The Gem of The Colored and Humanity!!!!
    Our Creator He Done Shed His Grace On Thee!!!!

    Hey Bigots!!! Look at the moon and eat your crow!!! Or hurry up and see a shrink right away. You gonna need it.
