Reports indicating heavy fire exchange in Tsorena & Aiga (Northern Tigray) areas between Ethiopia and Eritrea troops. Sources indicate the fire exchange involves heavy artilleries and tanks from both sides. According to Awramba Times Eritrea has launched a full-scale attack in northern Ethiopia last night, following the recent report by UN Commission of Inquiry, in which it says the regime has committed crimes against humanity.
The United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea reported that officials in Eritrea have committed crimes against humanity, including enslavement, rape and torture, across the country over the past 25 years. The group suggested that the international community should now take steps, including using the international criminal court, national courts and other available mechanisms, to ensure there is accountability for the atrocities being committed in Eritrea.
