CWN Editor's Note: Ethiopian and Eritrean troops are fighting against a separatist coalition in the Tigray War, which began in 2020. A Church source warned that as Eritrean troops attempt to conquer the region, “the situation of the civilian population is dramatic” in “the worst offensive since the conflict [began].”

“This devastating crisis is beyond all imagination, genocidal massacres of civilians, rape and gender-based violence, looting, fires, destruction of homes, places of worship, schools, health facilities,” Bishop Tesfasellassie Medhin of Adrigat, Ethiopia, has said of the conflict.
