Every One Group, a humanitarian organisation based in Italy has today, November 14, reported that “611 Eritrean refugees have reached Israel, after being freed by traffickers” in Sinai; (‘who felt the pressure of humanitarian activists and international media.’)
However, victims of traffickers who have been directly contacted by demo.archive.assenna.com today confirmed that they are still suffering in the hands of Bedouin traffickers, in Sinai. According to them, nothing has changed.
This particular group of 37 men and women victims, who have spoken in pain about their enslavement and torture on Radio Assenna, a week ago, reiterate that their suffering is getting worse by day. They even told demo.archive.assenna.com that their number has increased to 58 as the Bedouins have brought 21 new hostages.
The particular location, where these 58 Eritrean Bedouin victims are held is called Serah and the boss of the trafficking business is Samih; the eldest son of this family of traffickers. According to the victims, there are 4 secret places within the area, which are owned by this family of human trafficking business.
demo.archive.assenna.com has also assigned an Eritrean man in Israel, who had been released a few months ago after $32,000 ransom, to find out if there are more Eritreans in similar situation. And he has told demo.archive.assenna.com that he has been in touch with another group who told him they are in captivity, facing torture. Contacts in Israel also indicate they are not aware of new arrivals from Sinai involving huge numbers.
Assenna can neither confirm nor deny if the incident of the mass release of Eritrean refugees has taken place. If true, this is good news which should delight every human being. However, people have to be cautious – if untrue, it will have grave consequences to the victims who are in life and death situations, under the inhuman traffickers, experiencing sufferings beyond imagination. Every victim counts! So we should never get complacent until the last man and woman are released.
