On November 4th, 2020, unelected Prime Minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed declared a genocidal war on Tigray, the northernmost regional state of Ethiopia, in collaboration with President of Eritrea Isaias Afwerki. Since then, Tigray regional administration has limited and/or blocked access to electricity, aid, food, and water for millions of Tigrayan civilians. Ethiopian prime minister Abiy and Isaias Afewerki of Eritrea sent thousands of Ethiopian troops, Eritrean troops, and Amhara Militias to Tigray which they have committed significant war crimes and ethnic cleansing, from massacring civilians, weaponizing starvation and weaponizing sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls in Tigray. Tigray is under complete Siege and millions of Tigrayans are dying of starvation and lack of Medicine due to the blockade.
