The latest round of peace talks between Ethiopia’s government and representatives of the country’s Tigray region has been extended as military commanders work out details on the disarmament of Tigray forces after two years of conflict. The African Union-led talks follow last week’s signing of a “permanent cessation of hostilities” in the conflict that is estimated to have killed hundreds of thousands of people. The agreement calls for the disarmament of Tigray forces within weeks, but there is concern about when other combatants who aren’t part of the deal will withdraw from Tigray. Pray that restoration of basic services, basic medical supplies and deliveries of humanitarian aid will resume. Pray for the five million people in the region to trust in God and be delivered from burdens and continuous turmoil (The Bible, Matthew 11:28-30).
