The U.S. Department of State said on Tuesday that it is gravely concerned by the reports of atrocities, including sexual violence, committed by the TPLF fighters in the Amhara region of Ethiopia in late August and early September 2021, as described in a recent Amnesty International report.

“It remains our firm position that there must be credible investigations into and accountability for atrocities as part of any lasting solution to the crisis,” Spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State, Ned Price said.

“Continued reports of atrocities underscore the urgency of ending the ongoing military conflict. We continue to engage parties to the conflict to urge a halt to the violence, an end to atrocities, the unhindered provision of life-saving humanitarian assistance, and a peaceful resolution to the conflict,” the statement by the State Department added.
