UN report reveals ongoing War Crimes in Ethiopia despite formal conflict end


In a damning report released on Monday, United Nations experts have unveiled shocking evidence that war crimes and crimes against humanity persist in Ethiopia, even nearly a year after the government and regional forces from Tigray formally agreed to end hostilities.

The report, which sheds light on the dire situation in the conflict-ridden nation, underscores the grim reality that the signing of the agreement last year, though bringing temporary calm, has failed to usher in comprehensive peace, especially in the troubled Tigray region.

Chair of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia expressed deep concern, stating, “While the signing of the agreement may have mostly silenced the guns, it has not resolved the conflict in the north of the country, in particular in Tigray, nor has it brought about any comprehensive peace.” He emphasized, “The situation in Ethiopia remains extremely grave.”

According to the report, the Ethiopian National Defence Forces, Eritrean Defence Forces, and allied regional special forces have been implicated in a disturbing pattern of “widespread and systematic attacks” against civilian populations. These revelations have cast a long shadow over efforts to stabilize the country and provide much-needed relief to the affected communities.

The findings of the UN experts paint a grim picture of the ongoing crisis in Ethiopia, where civilians continue to bear the brunt of the conflict. The report highlights the urgent need for international attention and action to address the escalating humanitarian and human rights crisis in the country.

The international community is now faced with the daunting task of ensuring that those responsible for these grave violations are held accountable for their actions and that measures are taken to prevent further atrocities. As the world grapples with the ongoing crisis in Ethiopia, remains committed to providing updates and insights into this unfolding tragedy.
