She expressed deep concern over the continuing reports of targeted attacks against women, girls, boys and men in Tigray, Afar and Amhara. This includes a systematic use of sexual violence as a weapon of war, a form of retaliation, punishment, humiliation, and stigmatizing people based on their real or perceived ethnic identity.
