Tigray conflict: Ethiopia to begin final stage of offensive in northern region

The Ethiopian government is set to launch what it calls its final offensive in the northern Tigray region. This after a 72-hour ultimatum for Tigray’s leaders to surrender ended.

Tensions between the prime minister and the TPLF started to appear shortly after he came to power in 2018, when he introduced sweeping new reforms that marginalized the Tigray region’s political power.

After elections were postponed in August, tensions escalated further when Tigray held its own unsanctioned elections.

Global’s Sharmeen Somani tells us why aid agencies are really concerned about what’s to come.
