Tigray, Ethiopia: The situation of Tigray is awful than ever. More than 100 civilians have been killed by Eritrean troops in a November massacre. The barbaric act left everybody shocked and disheartened.
Recently, Ethiopia’s prime minister Abiy Ahmed has confirmed for the first time that troops from neighbouring Eritrea have invaded the Tigray region following the outbreak of conflicts in November 2020.
He even has accepted serious crimes have been committed in the restive region, and rape has been used as a weapon of war.
The prime minister described parliament that Eritrea had told its soldiers were acting to defend the border, taking over tubes there abandoned by Ethiopian fighters who had gone off to fight.
He stated he had spoken to Eritrean administrators about allegations that soldiers from Eritrea had carried out slaughter in Tigray.
“After the Eritrean army passed the border and was working in Ethiopia, any damage it did to our citizens was unacceptable,” the anonymous news agency quotes him as saying.
Rights groups claim Eritrean troops have committed abominations in cities like Aksum, which include killing defenceless civilians, raping women brutally and the rife looting of public and private properties.
They have killed several men and women. Women have been raped, and there is no way to escape and self-defence. Hospitals lacked essential commodities as well as doctors too. Everyone was petrified, and the people of Tigray were witnessing the massacre of humanity.
The media was not supposed to enter, and humanitarian assistance was not able to be procured as Non-governmental organisation were not allowed in the Tigray.
Global Health Humanitarian Mukesh Kapila stated, “The longer an independent enquiry takes to start investigating crimes against humanity in #Tigray #Ethiopia, the more the time given to perpetrators to clean up the crime scene, i.e. sanitise ground zero & degrade evidence collection. As I saw happen in #Darfur.”

On the other hand, United Nations officials on Monday asked for a halt to indiscriminate and targeted attacks upon civilians in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, mainly asking out reports of rape and “other horrific reports of sexual violence.”
However, the massacre of humanity still will be unforgettable by the people of Tigray. Yet, the whole world is unaware of the barbaric instances in the Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region.
