In December of 2020, the people from the northern Ethiopian Tigray region flooded into neighboring Sudan as the Ethiopian government declared victory in its nearly month-long battle with the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF.)

At the time, Ethiopian forces have prevented even more people from crossing the border into Sudan, while a TPLF spokesman said that fighting had continued outside of Mekelle, Tigray's regional capital.

As humanitarian aid is cut off by the country reports have surfaced of mass rapes, executions, and terrorizing of civil populations while the conflict rages.
