Ethiopia: Multiple Issues Displace Somalis

 Ethiopia Insight published on 11 October 2022 a commentary titled "The Mass Exodus of Ethiopian Somalis to Sitti Zone" by Mohamed Hadi Gafdiid, a humanitarian worker in Somali Region.  

The Somali residents of Sitti zone, formerly know as Shinile, have experienced conflict with neighboring Afars, drought, and flooding.  The result has been massive displacement.  In some cases, Afar militants armed with heavy weapons to combat Tigrayans have turned them on Somalis.
