Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) urges Ethiopia not to start a war again.

Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) urges Ethiopia not to start a war again.

 The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has said in a statement that it is concerned about the escalating conflict between the federal government and the Tigrayan forces.

 The institute said in a statement that it urged all to do their part to prevent a resumption of hostilities in Ethiopia.

 Reminding that 19 months ago, the war in northern Ethiopia had left many vulnerable to various human rights abuses, EHRC said the escalation of hostilities should be stopped.

 "I have confirmed through previous investigations that millions of people in the Afar, Amhara, and Tigray regions have been subjected to violence, loss of loved ones, loss of life, loss of basic services, and the suffering of others."

 The three regions of northern Ethiopia, including the federal government, should focus on providing adequate human rights assistance to war-affected people, the EHRC said in a statement.

 He emphasized the need to focus on the crisis, and said that it was even more important now with the crisis over the situation in the Horn of Africa.
