UN condemns Ethiopia’s air strike on kindergarten

As combat between rebels and government forces raged along the region’s border on Saturday, the United Nations condemned a deadly Ethiopian air strike on a kindergarten in war-torn Tigray.

According to local news station Tigrai TV, seven people were killed, including three little children.

Footages of damaged playground equipment and a building covered in colorful cartoon murals were shown on the news after the strike.

According to Addis Abeba, only military facilities were attacked, and the TPLF is “dropping fake body bags in civilian areas” to create a false sense of anger.

UNICEF, however, reported that the attack “hit a kindergarten, killing several children, and injuring others.”

“UNICEF strongly condemns the air strike,” said UNICEF chief Catherine Russell. BKM/ Expat Media
