Beilin Seyoum, a spokeswoman for Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

It is noteworthy that Tigray has been witnessing battles since last November, when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019, sent federal forces to get rid of the local authorities emanating from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, after he accused them of attacking an army barracks

Since then, the battles have spread to the neighboring regions of Afar and Amhara, while Tigray region has been engulfed by what the United Nations describes as a de facto humanitarian siege, fueling fears of widespread famine similar to what happened in Ethiopia in the 1980s.

Also, in addition to the food shortage, there is a severe shortage of medicines, children’s vaccines and medical equipment, according to what the United Nations has mentioned in several recent reports
