According to UN overnight, food and money are becoming scarce as more than a million people are being displaced.

More than 600,000 people depend on monthly food rations, however they were not able to receive it this month due to the travel blockages within Tigray’s capital.

There are still no communication with the Tigray region since the conflict that began on November 4.
