Ethiopia Declares “Humanitarian Truce” in War-Torn Tigray Region

HeadlineMar 25, 2022

Ethiopia has declared a unilateral “humanitarian truce” in order to ease the movement of aid in the conflict-torn Tigray region, where the government had previously been hampering access. The U.N. says hundreds of thousands are living in famine-like conditions in Tigray. All parties in the nearly year-and-a-half-long conflict, including Eritrean forces, have been accused of human rights abuses, including torture, rape and indiscriminate killings. Thousands have been killed and millions displaced.
