1. 600+ days into the genocidal #WarOnTigray by the allied forces of Ethioipia+Eritrea, & Amhara, the #Irob, one of the minorities in #Tigray, remains under the violent occupation of the #Eritrean forces without access to humanitarian aid. The Irob risk extinction & the IC must take action soon.

3. All of #Tigray has been besieged by the genocidal forces for 600+ days, all the essential services cutoff & the humanitarian aid that trickled in recently could not be distributed b/c of the near total fuel blockade by the Eritrea|n regime. Remote areas like #Irob are most affected.

4. And yet, the occupied areas are even worse. They are still facing heinous war crimes at the hands of the invading #Eritrean or Amhara forces. In #Irob, the occupied areas are completely sealed off from the world with no access to comm., food, & medicine&⤵️ https://twitter.com/IrobAnina/status/1540409462107713536

6. Nearly 600 days into #TigrayGenocide and #Irob remains under violent occupation of #Eritrea|n forces, preventing access to much-needed aid. The remote, vulnerable Irob population in #Tigray reportedly continues to face forced displacement + abduction and forced to get Eritrean IDs.

1. For 19 months #Irob has been besieged by Eritrean forces. As it stands today, we estimate ~half of Irob remains occupied, without access to much-needed aid and no media reporting from the ground. The Irob continue to face an existential threat.#EndTigraySiege
