Article 31 January 2023 Ethiopia

As is the case in times of conflict, the civilian population has suffered the most from the direct consequences of the hostilities. Fortunately, after the signing of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreements, the situation eased and we were able to organise the delivery of emergency humanitarian assistance, particularly medical supplies, by air and land, as we did during the humanitarian truce. However, the needs remain enormous, also in the neighbouring regions of Afar and Amhara, and as well of great concern in the Wollegas and Guji in the Oromo region.
