Operational Context

PUNTLAND

The number of persons arriving from Yemen to Bossaso appears to be decreasing, but remains unpredictable due to heavy fighting continuing around some strategic cities in Yemen. Larger displacements may occur at any time.

SOMALILAND

Since March 2015, 9,947 new arrivals (3,308 families) have been recorded in Somaliland, including 1,928 Yemenis, 7,871 Somalis, 114 Ethiopians and 23 people of other nationalities. The number of boats arriving every week has stabilized and the total numbers of new arrivals in Berbera remain relatively low.
