Irob + Kunama

1. Irob was the first location to be attacked & fall under Eritrean forces in Ethiopia. “The north is dying,” said a Irob man. “I strongly believe there is a campaign to target the people.” #IrobMassacre #UNSCActNow #TigrayGenocide @UN @cnalive @Pontifex https://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

2. The Irob district is little known & the situation there is not getting the attention it deserves from Int’l leaders. @AbiyAhmedAli is liable for all the crimes he is endorsing in northern Ethiopia. @LindaT_G @AmbMKimani #IrobMassacre #TigrayGenocide https://www.irobadvocacy.org/activities/pressrelease-Irob-District-In-Tigray-Needs-Urgent-Aid#.YD8JR_HT27t.twitter

3. “If you don’t bring your father, your brothers; you don’t get the aid, you’ll starve.” Irob is a severely affected area due to heavy Eritrean army presence. Hundreds have been executed & many women raped. #IrobMassacre #TigrayGenocide @irishmissionun https://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

5. “It is to be recalled that Eritrean forces abducted over 97 Irob civilians during Ethio-Eritrean war” & still their whereabouts are unknown. Many #Irob have been killed by Eritrean troops. This is a great loss for the tribe. #IrobMassacre #TigrayGenocide https://www.irobadvocacy.org/activities/pressrelease-Irob-District-In-Tigray-Needs-Urgent-Aid#.X-E_8FFY6FA.twitter

6. “This is the least-documented war. The world will apologize to the people of Tigray, but it will be too late.” When will @UN TRULY advocate for the people of Tigray & Irob? These ethnic groups are being targeted. #IrobMassacre #TigrayGenocide @NorwayUN https://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

8. Ethiopian govt. is unfairly withholding food aid from starving families suspected of links to Tigray forces. The Irob are deeply affected & silently feeling the effects of #TigrayGenocide. When will the @UN intervene? @Niger_ONU @PmTunisia #IrobMassacre https://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

9. The Kunama & Irob people are suffering immensely & both may be on the brink of extinction. We cannot turn a blind eye. It’s time the @UN ensure unfettered humanitarian access to all of Tigray. #UNSCActNow #TigrayGenocide@ChrisCoons @MexOnu @EstoniaUN @NorwayUN @UNReliefChief

10. The Kunama have faced war crimes by invading Eritrean troops. Their livelihood at risk as they are being systematically starved. Their crops & farming equipment have been intentionally destroyed. @UN you have a Responsibility to Protect.  #UNSCActNow @USAmbUN @USAmbUN @MexOnu

11. The Kunama have been terrorized by Eritrean troops. This is a minority group that must be protected. We are in the 5th month of the #TigrayGenocide & the @UN continues to fail this group. Why? #KunamaStarvation @AmbMKimani @UNReliefChief @mbachelet https://minorityrights.org/minorities/kunama-and-nara/

12. The Kunama depend on farming for their livelihood. The intentional looting & destruction of livestock, burning of villages & farming equipment has left them without food for 5 months. They are facing mass starvation. #UNSCActNow #TigrayGenocide @UNReliefChief @VietNam_UN

13. The Kunama people were devastated by Ethio-Eritrean border war. In just 20 years , they’re facing more war crimes by Eritrean troops-their ethnic survival depends on immediate withdrawal of Eritrean forces. #KunamaStarvation #UNSCActNow @KenyaMissionUN https://www.thenewhumanitarian.org/fr/node/206933

14. The people of Kunama in Tigray, are at extreme risk of extinction. This minority community is facing weaponized starvation, as villages & farming equipment are burned down & cattle are looted by invading troops. Please protect them. #UNSCActNow @UNReliefChief @USAmbUN

15. Five months into the war & we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg in stories about the #TigrayGenocide. The more remote communities, such as Irob & Kunama, are the most vulnerable & need protection, before they become extinct. #UNSCActNow @USUN @Ilhan @SVG_UN @Niger_ONU
