Posted in:

The horrific war in Tigray has greatly impacted Tigray, exacerbating the famine crisis and leaving the Tigray communities vulnerable. The conflict has severely disrupted the farmers' resilience and ability to sustain themselves. Their crops have been systematically looted, burned, and rendered useless, while their livestock have been mercilessly killed and harmed. Additionally, essential farm tools have been deliberately destroyed, further crippling their ability to cultivate. The community has faced restrictions that prevent them from carrying out necessary agricultural activities like plowing, and access to vital agricultural resources has been intentionally denied. These deliberate actions have resulted in the deliberate starvation of the Tigray communities.

Wars have gone on for thousands of years, but the tools of war have developed much further with what seems like little progress in human wisdom or leadership.

Modern wars seem much worse in scale and intensity than what our ancestors experienced before industrial mass-production of small and large weapons.
