Through the social network Twitter, the UN agency specified that 60,627 people crossed into Ethiopia, of which 30,788 are Ethiopian citizens, 15,882 Sudanese and 13,957 of other nationalities, being in the Amhara, Benishangul Gumz and Gambella regions (northwest ) where the border crossing points are located.

In the statement, the entity explained that it expanded its presence in those places and in its Migration Response Center, located in the city of Amhara; in addition to providing healthcare, water, sanitation, mental health and psychosocial support, as well as transportation and personalized protection.

However, in the note, "key concerns" are highlighted, such as the subsequent transport of these people, heavy rains and the worsening of the terrain to receive humanitarian aid, as well as inadequate access to basic goods such as food and medical supplies.

IOM also highlighted the "language barrier" as a "key challenge" in providing the necessary information and services to the displaced.

The Sudanese Ministry of Health has reported that since the start of the conflict in Sudan until last weekend, more than 3,000 people have been killed and some 6,000 have been injured. However, the United Nations Organization (UN) estimates that 1,173 civilians died and 11,704 were injured.

Led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, president of the Sovereign Transitional Council, and Mohamed Hamda Dagalo, head of the Rapid Support Forces (FAR), the clashes in Sudan broke out mainly due to the decision to integrate the latter into the regular army. .
