Geneva, 5 June 2018 – The following can be attributed to Francesco Rocca, the President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies:
“Over the past weekend, in just a few hours, more than 110 people died in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coasts of Tunisia and Turkey. We cannot keep silent as the massacre on the sea continues.
Description of the disaster On 31 July 2017, a fire broke out in Jendouba Governorate (the North-West region of Tunisia), particularly affecting the delegations of Ain Draham and Fernana, resulting in the destruction of houses and displacing around 500 persons, leaving them in a very vulnerable situation without any shelter.
A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
The Government of Tunisia extended every month the state of emergency declared after November 2015 attack on elite presidential guards in the capital. The state of emergency confers exceptional powers on Tunisian authorities, notably to forbid strikes and public gatherings, close movie theatres and control the press.
The fragile political situation in Libya continue to have an impact on the security situation in Tunisia.
In Egypt, the situation remains tensed in North Sinai Governorate with regular security incidents affecting greater Cairo and the Nile Delta.
