Tigray Conflict of Ethiopia
The conflict of Tigray started a year ago. Ethiopian government deployed troops to the Tigray region to reinstate stability and stop the Tigray People Liberation Front -TPLF from inciting violence.
The TPLF has jeopardized national politics for almost three decades.
Consequently, thousands of people were injured, displaced, or lost their lives.
TPLF aims to control the capital city, Addis Ababa. The situation in Ethiopia is deteriorating day by day. The extrajudicial killings of civilians in Ethiopia have generated alarm amongst the international community.
Despite various efforts by the international community, there hasn’t been any solution nor the negotiations to end the fight have been successful. US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken warned that the conflict could have a disastrous impact.
The European Union is worried about its member states’ citizens in Ethiopia. EU wants to ensure the safety and security of all citizens. United Nations and Humanitarian Aid International Organizations already urged for the ceasefire and cessation of the extrajudicial killing of people.
