Clashes in refugee camp in Ethiopia’s Tigray

Fighting erupted Tuesday between rival forces in a refugee camp in Ethiopia’s war-hit Tigray after Tigrayan rebels launched a new offensive in the region.

Multiple refugees reported that ammunition cartridges were landing on the roofs of their shelters, and some refugees from both Mai Aini and the nearby Adi Harush camp have started fleeing on foot south towards the Amhara region

Two camps for Eritrean refugees located further north, near the border with Eritrea, were destroyed earlier in the eight-month war between Ethiopian forces and Tigrayan rebels.
