Somaliland has announced on Sunday that it would not accept any more refugees fleeing the war in Yemen. SLL:- We will not be accepting Somali refugees or any other refugees fleeing Yemen,” declared, Mohamed Ali Waran’Adde, Somaliland’s Home Minister.

Up to 18,000 refugees have reportedly crossed the Gulf of Aden from war-ravaged Yemen to seek refuge in Djibouti, Somaliland and Somalia’s Puntland region.

According to the International Organization for Migration, at least 2,000 Somali and Yemeni refugees have docked at Berbera, Somaliland’s main port.

"Somaliland is not getting any assistance from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), nor from any other international organizations or the international community,” The minister told the Anadolu press agency.

"We can no longer accommodate the refugees,” he insisted, ” But, we are hopeful of support and funding from the United Nations and other international organizations to deal with the influx of refugees fleeing the war in Yemen.

Most of the recent refugees have sailed to Somaliland from the area around the historic city of Aden and include many Yeminis of Somali ancestry.
