(Source: SABC News) –
The humanitarian situation in Ethiopia’s northern region is deteriorating. That’s the warning from the United Nations Refugee Agency – UNHCR. The UN’s humanitarian agency says over 1 million people are currently in need of urgent assistance in the Tigray Region.
The international community, led by the United States, has increased pressure on the government of Ethiopia to end the conflict in its northern region and for Eritrea to withdraw its troops. Ethiopia has since allowed humanitarian access into the region.
However , six months of fighting shows no sign of ending, as the situation worsens for thousands of people forced to flee from home seeking safety.
