Other Western countries have enabled the war on Tigray by not condemning it. Western apathy is best represented by Canada’s lack of response to the genocide in Tigray. In early 2021, the State Department announced that it was looking into evidence to legally determine whether genocide has been committed in Tigray. In the Tigray conflict, Western diplomats worked hard to create equivalence in crimes between the genocidaires and Tigrayan forces. Local resistanceDespite the diplomatic noise, no single country or multilateral organization has yet recognized the genocide in Tigray.

Powerful women from present and past remain muses for Ibrahim Maalouf. The end result is a new collaborative album, named after the storied figure, with revered Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo. Photo: Sife ElamineA story for the agesThe story of the Queen of Sheba has been told in various guises across Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions. Where those were singular pieces of music, Queen of Sheba could be the first album dedicated to the topic. Like Queen of Sheba, Maalouf's Kalthoum and Dalida by Ibrahim Maalouf albums also transcend mere tribute with their level of research and detail.

A new multi-sectoral nutrition strategy has been started by the Ethiopian government and its partners with the goal of reducing stunting, child wasting, and maternal malnutrition in the nation. Meseret Zelalem, Director of Maternal, Child Health and Nutrition at the Ethiopian Ministry of Health, said the program is in line with the Ethiopian government’s commitment to reducing stunting and ending child malnutrition in the East African country. However, despite the progress, more than 5.8 million children under five years are affected by stunting and 1.2 million are affected by wasting, it said. The UN Children’s Fund said improving maternal nutrition is important to ensure women’s health and achieve better pregnancy and birth outcomes in Ethiopia. UNICEF stressed that given the scale of malnutrition in the country, there is an urgent need to accelerate the provision of vital nutrition services for vulnerable people.

Some observational studies on coffee drinking have been shown to be flawed because of these types of effects. Aside from protecting the liver, other health benefits have also been associated with coffee drinking, but these may depend on the type of coffee consumed.

The Ethiopia-Sudan border conflict is a Trojan horseEthiopia and Sudan share a border line that spans 1,600 kilometers. Sudan, Egypt, and the rest of the Arab world contend with passion that it belongs to Sudan. The genesis of unprovoked aggression camouflaged as a border conflictFollowing the treasonous act by the TPLF in November 2020 on December 23, 2020, the Sudanese military government mobilized and positioned menacingly heavily armed Sudanese military units on the Ethiopia border. This is the core reason for Sudan’s unprovoked and opportunistic invasion and annexation of Ethiopian lands. Further, to be credible, the AU must demand that Ethiopia and Sudan settle their border conflict through their Joint Commission.

July 02, 2022 (ENA) Terrorist TPLF’s militant leader, Tadesse Werede, said the group is making preparations to wage a third-round devastating war. In his interview with Tigray TV, the leader of the terrorist army stated that “ what I want to communicate is we are making preparations as an army to register bright and significant result.”The terrorist expressed TPLF’s intention of belligerence and its preparation for war by mobilizing massive fighters from the civilian population. He also gave hints that the terrorist group could launch attack at anytime. However, the TPLF with its dubious position is not reciprocating to the peace initiatives offered by the Ethiopian government. In this respect, the statement of Tadesse proved that the group is mobilizing a massive number of terrorists to adjacent neighboring regions to unleash another war.
