Eritrea Should Accept Ethiopian Refugees in Yemen: Activist
By Tedla Asfaw
Many foreigners are fleeing Yemen by sea to Djibouti because of Saudi bombardment of Yemen. I wonder why Ethiopians are not going to Assab which is very close from the Aden port to save their lives.
There is no report so far how many Ethiopian refugees flee for Djibouti. Djibouti no doubt will send the refugees back to Ethiopia like Saudi Arabia did. Those who fled Ethiopia for political reason have two choices. Either to dig deep and hide, and pray for the bombardment to stop or save themselves by taking less than one hour boat ride and flee to Assab.
Hailemariam Desalegne statement today April 2 solidarity with Saudi bombardment is irresponsible statement that put Ethiopians in a very dangerous position. Yemenis are united because of the Saudi air attack that killed many children, women and elderly.
Ethiopians will be targeted like they were in Libya in 2011 when rebels supported by Western bombardment overthrow Mohammed Gadaffi.
The Diaspora Ethiopians can raise money if there is an Action plan to save Ethiopian refugees. We did it for Saudi Arabia Ethiopians when they were attacked and killed in 2014.
The Saudi killing machine is now doing it from air. The death of Ethiopian refugees in Yemen refugee camp that is reported on foreign medias need our immediate response. Assab should be an alternative and Eritrea should open its port for Ethiopians who run for their lives.
