iciHaiti – DR: Haitians cross the border to supplies
On May 15, hundreds of Haitians entered Dominican territory to obtain food and other miscellaneous goods through the border zone of El Carrizal, in Comendador, (Elías Piña) because the area has no perimeter fence. However, determined Dominican soldiers provide extensive surveillance around the area, to prevent Haitians from continuing to penetrate further into Dominican territory …
The desperation faced with the food shortage in Haiti, forced them to reach the border to buy rice, chickens , eggs, bananas, herring, sardines, vegetables, pasta, beans among others …
A local Dominican resident said that since the border was closed he had never seen so many Haitians enter Dominican territory.
Recall that since the authorities of the two countries decided to close their borders due to the epidemic of coronavirus Covid-19, the Haitians have been authorized to buy food among other things at the door of separation of the two countries https://www.icihaiti.com /en/news-30575-icihaiti-dr-the-dominican-government-helps-the-haitians.html[19659005[[19459016[Seealso:
