The situation of the Somali displaced people is not improved yet. They feel abandoned after they have been trapped in the shelling of the government and the Somali rebels in the past. They lack adequate international aid until now, so they face threats of famine and diseases.
The situations the Somali troublemakers have created still affect them, as they do not have any security and the government is just lacking good rehabilitation programs to reallocate them and move forward to address other problems they face in the absence of good international help.
The numbers of the Somali interiorly displaced people (IDP) reached 1.4 million, while the numbers of Somali refugees in the neighboring countries reached 1.9 million people in the neighboring countries and these numbers are continuing to grow.
Reports show that some Kenyan security agents have abused, beaten and raped some the Somali displaced women including young girls when they arrived from the internally displaced places to the Kenyan borders, in the absence of international observation.
The raping continues even in the camps, where many young girls have been sexually abused and given birth to many children they left outside the camps. The abandoned babies have been found and taken by foster families.
Even in Somalia, the displaced people still suffer sexual violence and human abuse in other ways while they lack access to get some kind of works to survive, or to get help from the government, or from the relief agencies in the country for a quite long period.
The displaced people even become a business for some authoritative and official people to get some of the Somali displaced people to serve them at home and do other jobs for them. They sell and buy human beings this way.
More than 18,000 Somali displaced people are in Afgooye near Mogadishu. Galkayo or Gaalkacyo in the north central region of Puntland has some ten thousands of Somali displaced people. The capital city itself has more than 120,000 Somali displaced people.
Among other politically oriented aid agencies in the area, the relief foundation of Iran's Khomeini started to assist the Somalis displaced people, so they could get some kind of influence on the Somali internally displaced people.
Unfortunately, the internally displaced persons or (DPRE) as known to many organizations do not have good education to differentiate politically oriented aid from humanitarian aid.
The Somali interiorly displaced people (IDP) are exhausted. They have already experienced different kinds of abuse. Their situation is obviously deteriorating, despite the efforts made by the international relief agencies to help them.
The relief operations have stopped many times during the shelling of the militias. The security they demand has not been achieved even during the mission of the UN missions (UNOSOM 1-2) in the mid of the 1990s and the African Union missions (AMISOM) in Somalia in 2007.
Thousands of Somali displaced people (IDPs) faced many dangers while the fighting between the armed groups escalated. The fighting commenced required urgent international solution to the humanitarian crises in the country. However, the relief agencies did a little to help.
The Civil War Trapped Somali Displaced People in Mogadishu!
The Crisis Group is worried, as the situation becomes deplorable in Somalia. The group urged that the distribution of arms to help the government is not well controlled and said that the arms reached the rebels as well.
The lives of Somalis worth nothing at the time that the forces of the government and the rebels groups engaged in fighting each other.
At that time the Crisis Group suggests tracking the routes of the arms and calls to help the Somalis negotiate peace with all the groups involved in the crises.
Shocked by the loss of civilian lives during the fighting in Mogadishu last week, the High Commissioner of refugees, Antonio Guterres called for more international attention to help the Somali displaced people who are described by the international humanitarian figure as "needy and vulnerable population in Somalia".
The UNHCR describes Somalia as "one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today with half the population in urgent need of humanitarian assistance." The numbers of the interiorly displaced Somalis reached 1.4 million (IDPs).
Meanwhile, the continued fighting and general insecurity make it difficult for aid agencies to access and assist the interior Somali displaced people (IDPs).
Thousands of civilians have fled Mogadishu, while many others stay trapped there, "displaced and without any means to leave the beleaguered city," to be safe from the waves of violence between government forces and the Al-Shabaab militia, the Somali troublemakers.
The UNHCR spokesperson, Melissa Fleming said on 16 April in Geneva that more than 30 people are reported killed. Many of those Somalis are civilians including children.
The UNHCR has information from local sources to "understand that medical facilities are having difficulties coping with the many wounded. Residents have described the last week's shelling as among the worst in months." Melissa explained.
The UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina Jolie appealed for the safety of civilians in Mogadishu. She met Somali refugees last September in northeast Kenya. Watch the video at Somali Refugees.
"I appeal to those who carry on fighting not to shell and target civilian neighbourhoods." She said.
The beautiful actress and human ambassador, Jolie also said in a statement released by the UN refugee agency, "I am deeply troubled by the complete and utter disregard for human life in Somalia,".
She explaining that "another tragedy is unfolding in Somalia as street battles rage on in Mogadishu, causing incredible suffering, massive displacement and loss of life."
According to the UNHCR report, this latest violence has resulted in adding more 500 Somali displaced people to the mentioned numbers.
The numbers of interiorly Somali displaced people in the capital Mogadishu this year are more than 100,000 people, "with most having fled to the relative safety of IDP camps in the Afgooye corridor some 30 kilometres west of the capital."
