6,000 people enter Ethiopia fleeing fighting in neighboring Sudan

Addis Ababa, May 3, 2023

More than 6,000 people have entered Ethiopia fleeing fighting in neighboring Sudan, according to local officials.
In a press statement , the West Gondar zone communication office in Ethiopia’s northern region of Amhara said the fleeing people are from 42 different countries, including 941 Ethiopian nationals who were previously living in Sudan.

The statement said the number of fleeing people the zone currently has is only up to last Friday, with plans already underway to designate a specific refugees’ accommodation site if the crisis continues to expand.

The statement added that the local officials were working together with the International Organisation for Migration and the Ethiopian Red Cross Society to help with the health, transportation, nutritional, and water needs of the refugees.

Stephane Dujarric, the chief spokesman for United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said that at least 73,000 people have fled ongoing fighting in Sudan to neighboring countries

Brutal fighting erupted in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum on April 15 and swiftly escalated in different parts of the country.

The ongoing fighting is pitting the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) against the paramilitary group, the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Both sides have accused each other of initiating the conflict.

The death toll from the clashes between the SAF and the RSF has risen to more than 500, with thousands more injured, according to Sudan’s Ministry of Health
