Airstrike Kills 56 Displaced People in Tigray as Region’s Humanitarian Situation Worsens

HeadlineJan 10, 2022

In Ethiopia, aid groups have suspended their work in parts of the northern Tigray region after a deadly airstrike on a camp for displaced people killed at least 56 civilians last week. Dozens of others were wounded, including children. The attack by Ethiopian military forces took place late Friday.

This comes as Tigray’s biggest hospital is reporting they’re running out of therapeutic foods to treat children with severe malnutrition. More than 40% of children under 5 who arrive at the hospital are malnourished, medics said. The hospital is also facing a shortage of medicines and equipment, with doctors blaming the devastation on a six-month blockade by government forces that’s made it nearly impossible for aid to enter Tigray.
