Tigray: Is Ethiopia’s civil war entering a new phase? | DW News

Ethiopian government forces have launched new air strikes on the capital of the Tigray region. The government says it targeted a former military center on Thursday, marking the third day of strikes this week. On Wednesday, over a dozen people were killed when the Ethiopian military attacked an industrial compound in Mekele. An airstrike on Monday killed at least three children and wounded several others.

Thousands of people have been killed in the year-long conflict, that pits the Ethiopian government against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. The Tigray fighters have recaptured much of Tigray and expanded the fighting into the neighbouring regions of Amhara and Afar. Hundreds of thousands are now displaced in those regions too, widening the humanitarian crisis.
The UN repeated its pleas for a ceasefire.

Some six million people are caught in the middle of the fighting in Tigray. The region has been largely cut off by Ethiopia’s government, meaning that very little food aid is getting through. The first starvation deaths have been reported in recent days – and it’s feared the number will continue to rise.

Ethiopia: Government forces launch air strikes in Tigray region

Ethiopia has again launched airstrikes against the capital of the northern Tigray region.

There has been fighting between Ethiopian and Tigrayan forces for almost a year now and the government’s blockade of the region has cut off the six million people who live there from much-needed humanitarian aid.

Today, the United Nations said it would be reducing by half the number of staff it has on the ground due to the volatile security situation.

We report from Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian military launches new air strikes on Tigray region | DW News

Ethiopia’s military launched air strikes on the capital of the war-battered Tigray region on Monday.
Tigray media and local hospital sources say the attack on Mekelle killed three civilians. Ethiopia’s government initially denied it had conducted airstrikes, but later state-run media said the air force targeted communications infrastructure in the city. The air raids were the first on Mekelle since the early stages of the war in northern Ethiopia, which began nearly a year ago. The United Nations says it’s concerned about the escalation of violence, as the region faces a looming humanitarian crisis.
