Ethiopia: Leaders Should Face Punitive Measures if Civilians Targeted

 The International Crisis Group published a statement on 20 October 2022 titled "A Call to Action: Averting Atrocities in Ethiopia's Tigray War."

A seven-week Ethiopian and Eritrean offensive in Tigray Region risks degenerating into a still bloodier phase.  Civilians are trapped in the line of fire.  The ICG concludes that Ethiopian and Eritrean leaders are ignoring calls to halt the offensive and should be warned they will face punitive measures if they target civilians.
