The United Nations on Saturday called on the governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia to end the fighting and work for peace after denouncing attacks on six million people under siege in Tigray.

The UN already denounced this week possible war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the framework of this conflict unleashed in November 2020 and warned that the upsurge of conflicts recorded in the last month could lead to "new atrocities".

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs also reported that thousands of people were displaced in some areas of Tigray, Afar and Amhara. In addition, humanitarian workers are unable to access these areas as the only land route is unavailable as a result of the latest fighting.

UN Humanitarian Air Service flights to and from Tigray have been suspended since August 25, which also halted the transport of commodities and operational cash to Tigray. The UN reported that it continues to deliver supplies where access is possible, but this is insufficient in the face of existing needs.
