Number of displaced people in two Ethiopian states grows daily

Addis Ababa, Dec 8 (Prensa Latina) The number of displaced people in Afar and Amhara is growing every day and currently totals nearly two million, due to the criminality of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), according to investigations by the Ethiopian Government.

Reports from the National Disaster Risk Management Commission and the Emergency Management Committee revealed that more than 400,000 citizens in Afar fled their homes and more than 1.4 million in Amhara did so.

Along with the displaced individuals, the number of people in need of humanitarian aid is growing as well. In Afar, the figure exceeds 1.3 million, and in Amhara, the Government has already sent more than 28 million kilograms of food for more than two million people.

Those figures have steadily risen in the last few days, because the insurgents have increased their aggression against the population and the looting of private property and public institutions, in response to the offensive by the forces led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Billene Seyoum, press secretary for the Office of Prime Minister, made the remarks at a public appearance, where she described the victories of the federal troops and militias in the last two weeks as a “hard blow to the terrorists.”

Since November 23, Ahmed has been leading the operations to expel the TPLF forces from Afar and Amhara areas, which extended the Tigray conflict to these two regional border states in June.
