Harrowing reports out of Ethiopia this week revealed unbelievable conditions for civilians.
"Civilians in Ethiopia — both within the blockaded northern region of Tigray and throughout the country — are facing rape, executions, torture, beatings, and the abduction of their children to be used as child soldiers," reported Breitbart.
"The government of Ethiopia — led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner — has been at war with the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), a formerly ruling Marxist political party, since November 2020," reported Breitbart.
"Ahmed’s government accused the TPLF of assaulting military facilities that month and responded with a full-scale assault on the entire region of Tigray, including a blockade that prevents the distribution of much-needed humanitarian aid and prevents communication with the outside world that remains in place to this day," according to Breitbart.
"In recent days, the ENDF [Ethiopian National Defense Forces] has taken control of some urban areas in the Tigray Region," an official statement from Addis Ababa read. "The Government of Ethiopia is carrying out the necessary preparations and will coordinate with the relevant humanitarian agencies to provide humanitarian aid through these areas that have come under the control of the ENDF, including via the Shire airport."

"Four witnesses reported that in the village of Shimblina in September, 46 people were rounded up and summarily executed. Other villagers found their bodies lying mixed with domestic animals, which had also been killed," an aid worker said. "Hyenas had eaten a few of the bodies, and they could be identified only by the remains of their clothing. The witnesses said they had no time to bury the bodies, and the hyenas must have finished them by now."
