Ethiopia Watch: Civil Society Monitor of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement


A new report has revealed disturbing evidence that the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (CoHA) reached eight months ago between the Ethiopian Federal Government and Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is marred by significant gaps, impacting the protection of civilians. 

By signing up to a disarmament plan and the restoration of crucial services, including aid supplies, both sides agreed to end a two-year conflict that had led to thousands of deaths and warnings of a famine. 

But now, this study, conducted by a coalition of regional and international civil society organizations—including the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC)--found that the initial cautious reception of the agreement was warranted, as it now appears to be crumbling.
