Tigray crisis worsening with no withdrawal of Eritrean troops in sight: UN (DW)

Tigray crisis worsening with no withdrawal of Eritrean troops in sight: UN

The UN humanitarian chief has said that sexual violence and starvation were being used as weapons of war in Ethiopia’s Tigray. He urged Eritrea to make good on its pledge and recall its troops.    

Ethiopian Army soldiers stand as a children stand behind them at Mai Aini Refugee camp, Eritrean refugees who had fled the authoritarian state to camps in Tigray are uniquely vulnerable with Eritrean soldiers still present in the region. These are Ethiopian army soldiers standing guard.

The humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia’s conflict-stricken Tigray bordering Eritrea is deteriorating with no sign of a promised pullback of Eritrean soldiers from the region, the United Nations aid chief said on Thursday.

Talking to the UN Security Council, Mark Lowcock said that sexual violence was being used as a weapon of war in Tigray with some women reporting that they were gang-raped over a period of several days.
