Rape still a weapon of war in Tigray months after peace deal




Eritrean and Ethiopian soldiers continue a widespread and systematic campaign of rape in Tigray despite the peace agreement signed in November last year, a new report reveals.

In the first report to document sexual violence — using hundreds of medical records from the start of the conflict in November 2020 through to June 2023 — healthcare professionals recount cases of gang-rape, sexual slavery and murder, including the killing of children.

The report, by Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) and the Organization for Justice and Accountability in the Horn of Africa, reviewed 304 medical records of conflict-related sexual violence from health facilities across Tigray; 128 showed rape occurring after the agreement to halt all hostilities after two years of civil war.

Lindsey Green, one of the report’s authors and a PHR senior programme officer, said the medical records painted a picture of “horrifying” experiences. “The sexual violence we have documented is brutal and used as a way to intimidate and terrorise communities,” she said.

Survivors of sexual violence in the report ranged in age from eight to 69. Three-quarters of cases (76%) were of gang-rapes. Ten accounts were of people who had been held captive and raped by multiple perpetrators. Several patients also described the murder of family members, including children, before, during or after their attack. In almost all cases (96%), perpetrators belonged to military and paramilitary groups.

The Guardian spoke to women and healthcare professionals independently of the report, who described ongoing sexual violence in Tigray. Selamawit*, 22, left her home town in north-western Tigray after she was gang-raped in February by Eritrean soldiers occupying the area.

“First, it was three soldiers who gang-raped me,” she said. “But it did not stop there. Three more soldiers came and gang-raped me cruelly. When I cried out of pain and begged them to stop, they laughed at me.”

Harnet, 19, was raped by four Amhara militia in December 2022 in a town in western Tigray. She said: “They held me captive in their place for two days and repeatedly gang-raped me. They slapped and beat me during the rape.”

In many cases, women could access healthcare only months after the violence occurred and had serious complications resulting from the attacks. The report listed post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, incontinence, uterine bleeding and chronic pelvic pain. In multiple cases the rape resulted in pregnancy or in the woman contracting HIV.

A nurse at a hospital in northern Tigray attended by survivors of sexual violence said: “There is a lack of medicine and a shortage of facilities to treat the physical and mental health complications of the survivors. New cases are still being reported. Most of the survivors are subjected to torture in addition to rape.”

The report’s findings, which represent only a small portion of all cases of sexual violence in Tigray, corroborate other reports by the UN, human rights organisations and journalists who have documented abuse since the war began.

A brutal two-year conflict started in November 2020 when the government of Ethiopia began military operations in Tigray against the region’s ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. The war is estimated to have killed 600,000 people, making it one of the world’s deadliest recent conflicts.
