There is – at least so far – no sign that the number of Eritreans fleeing to Ethiopia is falling.
This is what the UNHCR had to say:
We haven’t seen any significant changes in the trend of arrivals since the agreement was signed on July 9th. The difference between the numbers that have arrived in June and July is negligible. UNHCR registered 1,738 Eritrean refugees in July compared to 1,791 in June. These fluctuations are in the normal range.
The UN’s assessment is much in line with the story posted earlier by Selam Kidane.
Her notes from a visit to Hitsats refugee camp for Eritreans, in Tigray regional state, suggested that Eritreans were continuing to arrive in the same numbers as before the Ethiopia-Eritrea reconciliation.
