The global community must work collaboratively to address the root causes of migration, providing alternatives to dangerous journeys and ensuring that migrants are treated with respect and humanity when seeking refuge or better opportunities.

Furthermore, the report calls for increased international awareness and pressure to ensure that such tragedies do not recur in the future.

To prevent further loss of life and address the complex challenges posed by migration, it is essential for governments to adopt humane border control measures and provide legal pathways for migration.

Additionally, international organizations, governments, and non-governmental organizations must collaborate to create safe and accessible avenues for individuals to seek refuge, while also addressing the underlying issues that force people to undertake perilous journeys.

In conclusion, the Human Rights Watch report paints a grim picture of the challenges faced by Ethiopian migrants attempting to cross into Saudi Arabia. The incident serves as a poignant reminder of the urgency to uphold human rights, implement responsible immigration policies, and create a world where individuals can seek safety and opportunities without risking their lives.

It is a call to action for the global community to address the underlying factors that drive migration and ensure the protection of vulnerable individuals on their journeys.
