WHAT IS HAPPENING IN TIGRAY?

Thumbnail

Since November 4, 2020, Tigray, a northern state in Ethiopia, has faced bombardments and attacks from regional, national and international military bodies. The Ethiopian government has called this ‘a law enforcement mission’, but the stories are contrary to the ground.

The war is being fought in the dark, with a communication blackout since November, independent journalists barred and internal journalists intimidated. There is no or limited access to water, electricity and banks. Tigray is under siege.

With a population of approximately 7 million people, the war on Tigray has reportedly killed 150 thousand people and internally displaced 2.2 million. Currently over 60,000 have arrived to take refuge in Sudan; almost a third of the refugees that arrived are children.

Genocide is being conducted through weaponisation of hunger and rape in addition to ransacked healthcare facilites, mass killings and war crimes at the hands of Eritrean and Ethiopian troops.

The Ethiopian government’s continuous disregard to comply with UN recommendations continues to be a cause for concern.

We call onto you to share the information about Tigray within your networks and amplify the voice of those who have been silenced, raped, murdered, looted, and forced into darkness.
