UN officials say they and Ethiopia have agreed to provide assistance to the war-hit Tigray region.
UN spokesman Saviano Abreu said an assessment mission had been launched Tigray region in Ethiopia.
But, the Ethiopian government has not yet commented. This information has been informed in a report of BBC online.
The Ethiopian Tigray region is running out of food and medicine for millions of people.
Hundreds of people have been killed in months of fighting between Ethiopia’s federal army and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), according to a BBC report.
The Ethiopian government says it has seized the regional capital, Macle. TPLF soldiers say they are still fighting near the city.
The conflict has displaced thousands of people and displaced hundreds of refugees in Sudan.
Ethiopian authorities say, Keira Ibrahim one of the TPLF’s most senior leaders has surrendered. He was a former speaker of the regional parliament.
TPLF did not comment on the matter.
The UN humanitarian agency OCHA said the agreement would give the UN “unimpeded, sustainable and secure” access to aid to Tigray-held territories.
Last Monday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed announced that the army had won the war. But TPLF politicians say they are continuing to fight. The country’s state media has confirmed that at least 3,000 troops have been released.
On November 4, Prime Minister Abi ordered an operation against TPLF militias following attacks on several federal outposts in Tigray.
In 1991, the TPLF-led military government was overthrown in Ethiopia. Until Abi became prime minister in 2018, the group controlled the country’s politics. But since then, the group’s leaders have complained that Abi is avoiding them.
They also blamed the Abi government for the miserable situation in the country. And since then, relations between the regional leadership and the federal government have been strained.
