Families displaced by the fighting in northern Ethiopia are sheltering in a school in the town of Disi.

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front said the Ethiopian government’s blockade of the northern region “has devastating effects on the civilian population.” And she warned that the blockade “left nearly a million people on the brink of starvation.”

Reports say power outages have become common, while communication lines and financial services have been cut since the rebels regained control of the provincial capital, Mekele, last June.

But the federal government in Addis Ababa blames the deteriorating conditions on the rebels themselves, says Vivian Nunes, the BBC’s Africa correspondent from Nairobi.

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front described the health system in the province as paralyzed. She said that patients “suffer from power cuts and a shortage of medical supplies, while there are no measures to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Tigray.”
