Current Situation of Eritrea
Red Sea Afar people mainly youth and women are fleeing the country. This is not the routine fleeing the country experience, but new condition is that the daily number fleeing the repressive regime has increased significantly. The daily reports of persons fleeing Eritrea has increased from 80 to 120 per day.

Hence, it is easier to know to what extent the potential refugees together with the community suffer.

This is serious regarding the suffering of the Red Sea Afar refugees.
In the last six months, the “Sha’bea” / E.P.D.F regime has continued its repression and even further complicated its genocide did not only limited to direct attacks but also started the indirect actions that attacks not only humans but also livestock (sheep, goats, cattle, and camel and including aquatic resources)
