Descrizione della foto

1 – A woman carrying crops walks next to an abandoned tank belonging to Tigrayan forces south of the town of Mehoni, The town of Mehoni, located in Southern Tigray, experienced shelling resulting in civilian deaths and injured people during confrontations between Ethiopian Federal Forces and the Tigray Defense forces. In November 2020 Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner, sent troops and tanks into the country’s northernmost Tigray region to depose its once-dominant ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
He promised the war would be quick and cause minimal, if any, harm to Tigray’s people. Since then thousands have died and many thousands more have been displaced, making Tigray the most extreme example of the nationwide instability that has dogged Abiy’s reign.

La città di Mehoni, situata nel Tigray meridionale, è stata oggetto di bombardamenti che hanno provocato la morte di civili e il ferimento di persone durante gli scontri tra le forze federali etiopi e le forze di difesa del Tigray.
Nel novembre 2020 il primo ministro etiope Abiy Ahmed, vincitore del Premio Nobel per la pace 2019, ha inviato truppe e carri armati nella regione del Tigray più settentrionale del paese per deporre il suo partito al governo un tempo dominante, il Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
Ha promesso che la guerra sarebbe stata rapida e avrebbe causato danni minimi, se del caso, al popolo del Tigray. Da allora migliaia di persone sono morte e molte altre migliaia sono state sfollate, rendendo il Tigray l’esempio più estremo dell’instabilità nazionale che ha perseguitato il regno di Abiy.
