Ethiopia’s Tigray crisis

The Ethiopian government has not confirmed reports of a major offensive against the Tigray rebels, but a mobilisation of the country’s forces and allied militia over the past few months left no doubt that a huge operation was in the offing.

With elections out of the way and the rainy season at its end, Prime Minister Abiy seems focussed on a military solution to the long-drawn out conflict.

The war has already taken its toll on the country: thousands have been killed, millions displaced and hundreds of thousands are facing famine.

Thousands of people have been killed in the conflict, and another two million have been forced to flee their homes.
