The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development condemned, today the 7th of April, 2021, the attack by Ethiopian army forces on the province of Afar in northeast Ethiopia, killing at least 100 civilians.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development confirmed that the clashes on the border between Afar and the Somali region of Ethiopia are part of a wave of violence and chaos that the country has been going through since late last year and the Ethiopian government has been continuing its armed attacks against the ” Tigray Region” since last November with the aim of ethnic cleansing, killing 359 civilians and displacing 80,000 people (half of them children) to Sudan.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development warns against the continuation of the Ethiopian government’s military campaigns against the Ethiopian people and the escalation of violence and bloody clashes in the country.
The Egyptian Alliance for Development and Human Rights calls on the United Nations and the African Union to intervene quickly to provide security for the Ethiopian people and protect civilians during the Ethiopian army’s military operations.
