“A massacre had taken place in one village. When we got there the village was deserted, a ghost town. You could hear the wind whizzing through the streets. Doors rattle. The clinic had been robbed. Employees fled.” After a short stay, Bil met some people. “They are traumatized, frightened, the fear is visible on their faces.

To Tigray, the last 110 Days have been days of mass killings, rampant rapes, disappearances, internal displacement and migration, looting and destruction of health facilities and schools, intentional killing of domestic animals, burning of crops, blockage of humanitarian aid, communication blackout, electricity blackout in most parts of Tigray.
