🔥 #TigrayGenocide – 200 Days of Rape, Starvation, Massacres, Blocked Aid etc.

💭 The illegal Tigray interim administration had sent ‘KinetTigray’ cultural group to Addis Ababa to participate in “Ethiopia Week” traditional program organized by the cruel drama queen, 😈 Abiy Ahmed to improvise a non-existent normalcy in Tigray to her babysitters – instead, the artists wore black to show their resistance & condolences to the ongoing genocidal war & alleviate the suffering of the population in occupied Tigray

ህገ-ወጥ የትግራይ ጊዜያዊ አስተዳደር ወደ አዲስ አበባ የላከውና 😈 ጨካኟ የድራማ ንግስት አብዮት አህመድ አሊ፤ “በትግራይ ውስጥ ሁሉም ነገር ሰላም ነው” በማለት ለሞግዚቶቿ ለማሳየት ባዘጋጀችው “የኢትዮጵያ ሳምንት” ባህላዊ መርሃግብር ላይ “ኪነት ትግራይ” የተሰኘው የባህል ቡድን በትግራይ እየተከሰተ ባለው የዘር ማጥፋት ወንጀል ላይ ተቃውሞቻቸውንና ሃዘናቸውን ለመግለጽ እንዲሁም በወራሪዎች በተያዘችው ትግራይ ውስጥ የህዝቡን ስቃይ ለማቃለል ይረዳ ዘንድ ጥቁር ለብሰው በአንድነት ሲያዜሙ ይታያሉ።

US Hosts Ethiopian Orthodox Church Head After Tigray Warning

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 10, 2021

The United States ambassador to Ethiopia on Monday hosted the patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church after he warned of “genocide” in the Tigray region in his first public comments on the war.

In a Facebook post, the U.S. Embassy said Ambassador Geeta Pasi discussed the humanitarian situation in Tigray with the patriarch, Abune Mathias, as well as his video message released last week and first reported by The Associated Press.

In the message, filmed by an American friend on a mobile phone and taken out of Ethiopia, the church leader said that “they want to destroy the people of Tigray” and said his previous attempts to speak out on the six-month conflict had been blocked.

The patriarch, an ethnic Tigrayan, also said that “many barbarisms have been conducted” these days all over Ethiopia, but “what is happening in Tigray is of the highest brutality and cruelty.” Thousands of people have been killed in the fighting between Ethiopian and allied forces and Tigray ones, the result of a political struggle that turned deadly in November.

The ambassador hosted the patriarch at her residence in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and invited him to attend future interfaith community meetings at the embassy to “further explore and continue their conversation,” the Facebook post said.

It was not clear whether the patriarch requested protection from the U.S. and the embassy did not comment on that. While the U.S. government has been outspoken on the Tigray conflict, notably urging soldiers from neighboring Eritrea to leave immediately, the embassy has been publicly quiet.

The spokeswoman for Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Billene Seyoum, did not respond to questions about the patriarch’s comments. The prime minister, the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner, has been under growing international pressure as atrocities in Tigray come to light, especially those committed by Eritrean forces, whose presence Abiy denied for months before admitting they were there.

Ethiopia’s government says it is “deeply dismayed” by the deaths of civilians, blames the former Tigray leaders and claims normality is returning in the region of some 6 million people. It has denied widespread profiling and targeting of Tigrayans.

But witnesses have told the AP about seeing bodies strewn on the ground on communities, Tigrayans rounded up and expelled and women raped by Ethiopian, Eritrean and allied forces. Others have described family members and colleagues including priests being swept up and detained, often without charge.

ሐሙስ፤ ጸሎተ ሐሙስ፥ ሕጽበተ ሐሙስ፥ የምሥጢር ሐሙስ፥ የሐዲስ ኪዳን ሐሙስ፥ የነጻነት ሐሙስ

በጸሎተ ሐሙስ የተፈጸሙ ተግባራት

በዕለተ ሐሙስ ከተፈጸሙ ዐበይት ተግባራት አንዱ መድኃኒታችን ክርስቶስ ‹‹ይህ ሥጋዬ ነው፤ ይህ ደሜ ነው፤›› ብሎ አማናዊ ሥጋውንና ደሙን መስጠቱ ነው (ማቴ. ፳፮፥፳፮-፳፰)። እንደዚሁም ይህ ዕለት ሰፊ ጸሎት የተደረገበት የጸሎት ቀን ነው። ጌታችን ሐሙስ ዕለት ወዙ እንደ ውኃና እንደ ደም ወርዶ መሬቱን ጭቃ እስኪያደርገው ድረስ መላልሶ ስለ ጸለየ ዕለቱ ‹ጸሎተ ሐሙስ› ተብሎ ተጠርቷል። ጌታችን የጸለየበትን ቦታም ወንጌላውያኑ በተለያየ ስያሜ ጠርተውታል፤ ማቴዎስና ማርቆስ – ‹ዐፀደ ወይን›፣ ‹ጌቴሴማኒ›፤ ሉቃስ – ‹ደብረ ዘይት›፤ ዮሐንስ – ‹ማዕዶተ ቄድሮስ›፣ ‹ፈለገ አርዝ›፣ ‹ዐፀደ ሐምል› በማለት ሰይመውታል (ማቴ.፳፮፥፴፮፤ ማር.፲፬፥፴፪፤ ሉቃ. ፳፩፥፴፯፤ ፳፪፥፴፱፤ ዮሐ. ፲፰፥፩)።

በተጨማሪም ይህ ዕለት (ሐሙስ) ያለ እርሱ ፈቃድ ሊይዙት እንደማይችሉ ለማስረዳት ጌታችን በመለኮታዊ ኃይሉ እንደ ቅጠል እንዲረግፉ ካደረጋቸው በኋላ በይቅርታው ብዛት መልሶ በማስነሣት በፈቃዱ ራሱን ለአይሁድ አሳልፎ የሰጠበት ዕለት ነው (ዮሐ. ፲፰፥፭-፰)። በዕለተ ሐሙስ ከተከናወኑ ዐበይት ተግባራት መካከል ሠራዔ ሕግ፣ ፈጻሜ ሕግ የኾነው ጌታችን አምላካችንና መድኀኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ሕገ ኦሪትን እየፈጸመ አድጓልና በኦሪት ሥርዓት የሚፈጸመውን የመጨረሻውን በግዐ ፋሲካ (የፋሲካ በግ) ከደቀ መዛሙርቱ ጋር መመገቡ አንደኛው ነው። ይሁዳ እንደሚያስይዘው ለሐዋርያት በምልክት ማስረዳቱ ሁለተኛው ሲኾን (ዮሐ. ፲፫፥፳፩)፤ እንደ አገልጋይ ራሱን ዝቅ አድርጎ የደቀ መዛሙርቱን እግር ማጠቡ ደግሞ ሦስተኛው ነው።

ጌታችን የደቀ መዛሙርቱን እግር የማጠቡ ምሥጢር

ጌታችን አምላካችንና መድኃኒታን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ የደቀ መዛሙርቱን እግር ካጠበ በኋላ ‹‹እናንተ መምህራችን፣ ጌታችን ትሉኛላችሁ፤ መልካም ትላላችሁ። እኔ ጌታችሁ መምህራችሁ ስኾን ዝቅ ብዬ እግራችሁን ካጠብኋችሁ እናንተም ዝቅ ብላችሁ የወንድሞቻችሁን እግር ልታጥቡ ይገባችኋል። ምሳሌ ኾኛችኋለሁና፤›› በማለት የትሕትና ሥርዓት ሠርቶ እነርሱም በሥራ እንዲገልጡት አዝዞአቸዋል (ዮሐ. ፲፫፥፲፭)። በግእዝ የተጻፈ አንድ ትርጓሜ ወንጌል ‹‹እዘርእ ፍቅረ ወትሕትና ውስተ አልባቢክሙ፤ ፍቅርንና ትሕትናን በልባችሁ እዘራለሁ፤›› እንዳላቸው ይናገራል።

ሠለስቱ ምእትም በአንቀጸ መነኮሳት ‹‹ወኢትትሐከይ ኀፂበ እግረ አኃው ሶበ መጽኡ ኀቤከ እስመ በእንተ ዛቲ ትእዛዝ ይትኀሠሥዎሙ ለእለ ያጸርዕዋ ለዛቲ ግብር ወለእመ ኮኑ ኤጲስ ቆጶሳተ እስመ እግዚአብሔር ኀፀበ እግረ አርዳኢሁ ቅድመ ወአዘዞሙ ከማሁ ይግበሩ፤ ወንድሞች ወደ አንተ በመጡ ጊዜ እግራቸውን ማጠብን ቸል አትበል። ይህችን ሥራ ቸል የሚሏትን ስለዚህች ትእዛዝ ሥላሴ በፍዳ ይመረምሯቸዋልና። ኤጲስቆጶሳትም ቢኾኑ እግዚአብሔር አስቀድሞ የደቀ መዛሙርቱን እግር አጥቦ እንዲሁ ያደርጉ ዘንድ አዝዟቸዋልና፤›› (ሃይማኖተ አበው ፳፥፳፱፤ ፩ኛ ጢሞ. ፭፥፱-፲)።

የጌታችንን ትሕትና በተናገረበት ክፍል፣ ሊቁ ያዕቆብ ዘሥሩግ ‹‹የማይታዩ ረቂቃን መላእክቱ አደነቁ፤ ከልዑል ዙፋኑ ወርዶ ለደቀ መዛሙርቱ ሲያገለግል ባዩት ጊዜ አገልጋዮቹ መላእክት ደነገጡ። ትሕትና ወዳለበት ፍቅር የአሕዛብ እግረ ልቡናን ያቀና ዘንድ ግሩም እሳት በትሕትና መገለጡን ባዩ ጊዜ ብርሃናት ደነገጡ፤›› ይላል (ሃይማኖተ አበው ፹፰፥፰)። ፊልክስዩስም ‹‹ወኅፅበተ ፋሲካ ትትሜሰል በምሥጢረ ትሕትና ፍጽምት፤ የፋሲካ ኅፅበት ፍጹም በኾነ የትሕትና ሥራ ትመሰላለች፤›› ብሏል (መጽሐፈ መነኮሳት)።

አባ ጊዮርጊስ ዘጋሥጫ በመጽሐፈ ምሥጢር ‹‹… ጌታችን ወደ ስምዖን ጴጥሮስ በደረሰ ጊዜ ጴጥሮስም ‹አቤቱ እግሬን የምታጥበኝ አንተ ነህን? አለው። እርሱም መልሶ ‹እኔ እግርህን ከላጠብሁህ አንተም ከእኔ ጋር ዕድል ፈንታ የለህም› አለው። ይህም ማለት ‹እኔ በአገልጋይ ምሳሌ እግርህን ካላጠብሁ አንተም ከበታችህ ላሉ ራስህን ዝቅ ማድረግ አትችልም። ራስህን ዝቅ ካላደረግህም የእነርሱ አለቃ መኾን አትችልም። በሰማያት ባለው መንግሥቴስ ከእኔ ጋር እንዴት አንድ ለመኾን ትችላለህ?››› በማለት ራሱ ትሑት ኾኖ ጴጥሮስን ትሑት ይኾን ዘንድ አጥብቆ እንደ መከረው ይናገራል።

Sec. Blinken Presses PM Abiy for Immediate, Full & Verifiable Withdrawal of Eritrean Troops From Tigray

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 26, 2021

Blinken presses Ethiopia’s Abiy on withdrawal of Eritreans from Tigray — End Hostilities Immediately

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday pressed Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for troops from Eritrea involved in the Tigray conflict to be withdrawn “immediately, in full, and in a verifiable manner,” according to a statement.

Blinken said Eritrean forces and Amhara regional forces in the Tigray region are contributing to the growing humanitarian disaster and committing human rights abuses, according to a statement by U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price describing a phone call with Abiy.

“The Secretary also stressed the need for all parties to the conflict to end hostilities immediately,” Price said.

Washington said last week that it had seen no evidence of a troop withdrawal promised by both Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Blinken also expressed concern in the call about the humanitarian and human rights crisis in Ethiopia, including the growing risk of famine in the Tigray region, Price said.

Top Ethiopia Health Official Alleges ‘Sexual Slavery’ in Tigray

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 15, 2021

Health officials say Ethiopian troops and their allies have been forcing women into sexual slavery in the Tigray region. That is after the conflict began there last year when Ethiopian President Abiy Ahmed ordered an offensive. Thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced. Now, a woman’s story of surviving gang rape offers an insight into the sexual violence against women in Tigray and the Ethiopian military’s involvement. A warning – some viewers may find the information in this story distressing.

‘Kept in Sexual Slavery’: Tigrayan Women Report Horrific Violence by Oromara Troops of Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 15, 2021

The young mother was trying to get home with food for her two children when she says soldiers pulled her off a minibus in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, claiming it was overloaded.

It was the beginning of an 11-day ordeal in February, during which she says she was repeatedly raped by 23 soldiers who forced nails, a rock and other items into her vagina, and threatened her with a knife.

Doctors showed Reuters the bloodstained stone and two 3-inch nails they said they had removed from her body.

The woman, 27, is among hundreds who have reported that they were subjected to horrific sexual violence by Ethiopian and allied Eritrean soldiers after fighting broke out in November in the mountainous northern region of Ethiopia, doctors said.

Some women were held captive for extended periods, days or weeks at a time, said Dr. Fasika Amdeselassie, the top public health official for the government-appointed interim administration in Tigray.

Women are being kept in sexual slavery,” Fasika told Reuters. “The perpetrators have to be investigated.”

Reports of rape have been circulating for months. But Fasika’s assertion, based on women’s accounts, marks the first time an Ethiopian official – in this case, a top regional health officer – has made a sexual slavery accusation in connection with the conflict in Tigray.

In addition, eight other doctors at five public hospitals told Reuters that most of the rape victims described their attackers as either Ethiopian government soldiers or Eritrean troops. It was more common for women to report sexual violence by Eritrean soldiers, the doctors said.

The Eritreans have been helping Ethiopia’s central government fight the region’s former ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), in the conflict plaguing the Horn of Africa nation.

Taken together, the descriptions paint the most detailed picture to date of the sexual violence against women in Tigray and the military’s alleged involvement in it.

Most people interviewed for this article declined to be identified. They said they feared reprisals, including possible violence, by soldiers who guard the hospitals and towns.

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed acknowledged in a speech to parliament on March 23 that “atrocities were being committed by raping women” and promised that the perpetrators would be punished. He did not identify the alleged perpetrators.

He said then for the first time that Eritrean soldiers had entered the conflict in Tigray in support of the Ethiopian government after the TPLF attacked military bases across the region in the early hours of Nov. 4. Ethiopia’s government had previously denied this, and the Eritrean government still does not acknowledge their troops’ presence. The TPLF was the dominant power in the central government when Eritrea fought a bloody border war with Ethiopia a generation ago.

Neither the Ethiopian nor the Eritrean governments responded to Reuters’ questions about specific cases raised by women and their doctors, or about the accusation of sexual slavery. No charges have been announced by civilian or military prosecutors against any soldiers. However, officials in both countries emphasized that their governments have zero tolerance for sexual violence – a point Abiy’s spokeswoman, Billene Seyoum, said the prime minister reiterated recently in discussions with military leaders.

The alleged sexual violence has drawn international attention.

Billene said the United Nations, the African Union and Ethiopia’s state-appointed human rights commission have been authorized to carry out joint investigations into alleged abuses by all sides in the conflict. That includes the “criminal clique,” she said, referring to the TPLF.

An Ethiopian military spokesman and the head of a government task force on the Tigray crisis did not respond to phone calls and text messages seeking comment. Reuters could not reach military leaders in either country.

Asked about the reports that Eritrean troops have committed rapes in Tigray and are keeping women in sexual slavery, the country’s information minister, Yemane Gebremeskel, accused TPLF activists of “coaching ‘sympathizers’ to create false testimonies.”

All the fabricated stories – which are alien to our culture and laws – are peddled to cover up the crimes of the TPLF which started the war,” he told Reuters in a written response.

Reuters was unable to reach a TPLF spokesman.

RECORDS OF ABUSE

Fasika, the health official, said at least 829 cases of sexual assault have been reported at the five hospitals since the conflict in Tigray began.

Those cases were likely “the tip of the iceberg,” Fasika said. Rape is under-reported in Ethiopia because it carries a huge stigma. Also, most of the region’s health facilities are no longer functioning, and travel between towns remains dangerous, he said.

Most of the women who have come forward are either pregnant or sustained severe physical injury from the rapes, Fasika said.

Reuters interviewed 11 women who said they had been raped by soldiers from Eritrea, Ethiopia or both. Four said they were kidnapped, taken to military camps and gang raped, in some cases alongside other women. The women did not know the camp names but said they were located near Mekelle and the towns of Idaga Hamus, Wukro and Sheraro.

Five other women said they were held in fields or deserted houses for up to six days. And two said they were raped in their own homes.

Reuters could not independently verify their accounts. However, all told similar stories of being beaten and brutalized. Healthcare providers confirmed that the 11 women’s injuries were consistent with the events they described, and they showed Reuters medical records for three of the women detailing their conditions.

The health care providers also shared details of nine other cases of sexual assault, including the ordeals of two 14-year-old girls.

Although Ethiopia’s government declared victory over the TPLF in November, fighting continues in some areas, and medical workers say new rapes are reported at the region’s health facilities every day.

This is being done to dishonour the women, to break their pride,” said a doctor at Ayder Referral Hospital, in Mekelle, citing the brutality of the attacks and humiliation of victims. “This is not for sexual gratification. The rapes are to punish Tigray.”

TELL MY STORY’

The 27-year-old mother said uniformed soldiers from Eritrea pulled her off a minibus on the road from Mekelle to the city of Adigrat on Feb. 6. They tied her up and marched her through fields to a bush camp, she said. After 11 days of rapes and beatings, she said, the soldiers forced nails, cotton, plastic bags and a rock into her vagina and left her alone in the bush.

Villagers found her unconscious and brought her to a nearby hospital.

She said she was still bleeding from severe internal injuries and could not control her urine, walk without a crutch or sit up for long periods. One leg was broken, she said.

She also described a different kind of pain: While in the hospital, she has no way to speak to her 4-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter because the Eritrean soldiers took her cellphone. She had left the children with her mother to search for food and never returned. At the time, the family had less than a week’s worth of bread.

I don’t know anything, if they are dead or alive,” she said. “The enemy destroyed my life.”

A 32-year-old mother in Mekelle told Reuters that soldiers removed her from a minibus on the same road at the end of February. They were dressed in Ethiopian uniforms, she said, but spoke with an Eritrean accent and had traditional facial scarification typical of the neighbouring country. She said they shot her 12-year-old son dead in front of her, then brought her to a camp where she was held with other female captives and repeatedly raped for 10 days.

Tell my story,” she said. “This is happening to women out there right now. I want this to end with me.”

A 28-year-old house cleaner said soldiers grabbed her from a street in Mekelle on the afternoon of Feb. 10 and took her to a field outside a military base where she was raped by more than 10 men wearing Ethiopian or Eritrean uniforms.

Wiping away tears, she said that during her two-week ordeal, soldiers doused her with alcohol and mocked her as they assaulted her. She escaped when her captors were distracted by gunfire, she said.

SHOT FOR RESISTING

The government has set up a task force separate from the human rights commission to investigate the reports of sexual violence. Its head, Mebrihit Assefa, said the body includes representatives from the regional health bureau, the attorney general’s office and federal police.

The task force plans to set up five centres where rape survivors can file reports with law enforcement and receive medical and psychosocial support.

Our prosecutors (and) police officers are there to investigate all crimes committed, including sexual violence,” said Awol Sultan, a spokesman for the attorney general’s office.

He did not respond to questions about the women alleging they were raped during captivity, or whether prosecutors were in touch with either the Eritrean or Ethiopian militaries. The results of the criminal investigations will be released publicly at an unspecified date, he said.

Abera Nigus, the head of Tigray’s justice bureau, said the legal process was likely to be complicated because most courts are not functioning in Tigray, and many rape victims cannot identify their assailants.

Knowing their rapists are still at large also has discouraged women from seeking help, doctors said.

Many of the women who sought treatment at hospitals had vaginal and anal tears, sexually transmitted diseases and injuries that rendered them incontinent, said the Ayder hospital doctor, an obstetrician gynecologist. The doctor shared notes from 11 cases the hospital had treated involving women raped by soldiers.

One woman had been gang raped on three separate occasions, according to the hospital notes.

Another was five months pregnant when she was raped, the notes indicate. Two 14-year-old girls were sexually assaulted in front of their families. One girl had a hand and foot amputated.

She had been shot for resisting her assailant.

☆ “We urge the [Biden] administration to utilise all available tools, including Global Magnitsky authorities and other targeted sanctions, to hold parties accountable for their actions and bring an end to this crisis,” the letter added.

Letter floats Magnitsky sanctions among other measures if the situation doesn’t improve

A letter from two members of the US House of Representatives is urging the Biden administration to take action on Tigray.

Congress placed increased pressure on the Biden administration over the pressing humanitarian situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia this week, urging it to move more forcefully and impose sanctions on the involved parties, including Addis Ababa.

A bipartisan letter from Gregory Meeks, Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and ranking Republican member Michael McCaul was dispatched on Tuesday evening to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen calling for sanctions on those fuelling the fighting in Tigray.

Ongoing fighting since November between Ethiopian troops and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front has left more than 50,000 dead and has displaced hundreds of thousands, according to Ethiopia’s three opposition parties.

The UN estimated on Tuesday that 2.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, while human rights organisations have reported mass atrocities, incidents of rape and extrajudicial killings.

Last week, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed admitted to the presence of Eritrean troops in Tigray fighting on the side of his government and committed to their withdrawal from the region, but so far there hasn’t been movement in that direction.

Congress is urging the Biden administration to do more in its bid to end the fighting.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms reported atrocities and gross violations of human rights committed against civilians, including rape, torture, forced displacements and disappearances, acts of ethnic cleansing, extrajudicial killings, the looting and destruction of medical facilities and restricted access to aid,” Mr Meeks and Mr McCaul wrote in their letter.

“We urge the [Biden] administration to utilise all available tools, including Global Magnitsky authorities and other targeted sanctions, to hold parties accountable for their actions and bring an end to this crisis,” the letter added.

The Magnitsky sanctions can be used to punish human rights abuses in accordance with the Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act passed by Congress in 2012.

The letter implicates all sides in such abuses and stresses that “additional targeted accountability measures cannot wait”.

It also threatens problems for the future of US-Ethiopia bilateral relations if the situation does not improve.

“While we remain committed to the important bilateral relationship between the United States and Ethiopia, this conflict jeopardises shared political, economic and security priorities,” the two representatives wrote.

The Biden administration delinked in February a suspension of $272 million in aid to Ethiopia for the Nile dam crisis and tied it instead to current “developments”, including the Tigray conflict.

Mr Blinken described the situation in Tigray as “ethnic cleansing” speaking to Congress in March, and on Tuesday he referenced sexual assaults and continued killings in the region.

“The report we’re releasing today shows that the trend lines on human rights continue to move in the wrong direction … We see it in the killings, sexual assaults and other atrocities credibly reported in Ethiopia’s Tigray region,” Mr Blinken said during the launch of the State Department’s annual human rights report.

Cameron Hudson, a senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Africa Centre, argued that Washington is following a gradual approach in ratcheting up the pressure on Ethiopia.

“We [the US] have already suspended our development assistance and our security assistance. Those moves seem to have very little impact in changing [Addis Ababa’s] approach to the conflict in Tigray. The next level of pressure is clearly going to be direct punitive measures,” Mr Hudson told The National.

The letter, addressed to Mr Blinken and copied to Ms Yellen, is an indication of potential sanctions by the departments of State and Treasury.

“This likely will translate into sanctions unless Washington starts to see greater movement on the key issues it is asking for changes on, namely the withdrawal of Eritrean and Amhara forces, the launch of the international human rights investigation, unhindered humanitarian access and some sort of domestic political dialogue,” Mr Hudson said.

On the role of Treasury specifically, Mr Hudson, saw the possibility of the US delaying or denying third party aid to Ethiopia.

“The Treasury does two big things that affect US policy on Ethiopia: It administers US sanctions and it controls the US vote at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) … The US has leverage in denying or delaying Ethiopia multilateral financing and assistance and not just bilateral assistance.”

In its report on Tuesday, the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said 2.2 million people are in need of aid and “approximately 1.3 million children need protective services and safe education­ in Tigray and neighbouring areas”.

The body expressed concern over reports of violations of human rights and rape in the Tigray region.

“There are more than 500 self-reported rape cases so far,” it said.
