"Nuns were raped" in Tigray

“Some of them had to be taken to hospital, even nuns were raped. Women and girls go through a different kind of abuse that you have never heard of before, things that are very bad. Some of the places that can help us are closed by the soldiers. "

Christian charity Aid to the Church in Need (AED) obtained testimony from a source whose anonymity is kept for security reasons. ACN reports that according to this source claims that Eritrean soldiers "Continue to massacre civilians".

For this source, it is a "genocide" which is in progress.

“This is clearly a genocide against the people of Tigray. It's not just a fight; they kill everyone - it's a sign of genocide. Many people are fleeing Tigray to Sudan and some of them, especially young people, are fleeing because they are targeted. They deliberately target young people. Young people are being killed, our ladies and women are victims of sexual harassment - this is a sign of genocide itself. "

The source reports sexual violence against women.

“Some of them had to be taken to hospital, even nuns were raped. Women and girls go through a different kind of abuse that you have never heard of before, things that are very bad. Some of the places that can help us are closed by the soldiers. "

On Tuesday, the American Embassy in Addis Ababa said in a tweet that "the humanitarian situation in Tigray is deteriorating rapidly". She added that "an interruption of the fighting NOW, coupled with unimpeded humanitarian access will immediately help avoid the risk of famine."

Internationally, a call for a cease-fire was launched, but Ethiopia refused it, believing its victory was near.
