The conflict in northern Ethiopia’s Tigray Region continues to generate large-scale humanitarian needs and result in civilian deaths, population displacement, and protection violations. Relief actors remain unable to access areas not controlled by the GoE.
Food insecurity will likely worsen in conflict-affected areas of central and eastern Tigray in the coming months without sustained humanitarian assistance, according to FEWS NET.
Through the USAID/BHA-supported CRS-led JEOP, REST had reached more than 373,000 people with emergency food assistance in central and southeastern Tigray as of February 12.
