Drone strikes killed 10 civilians yesterday in Mekelle, the capital of Ethiopia’s Tigray region. One Christian woman died after her house was hit.

Eric Foley with The Voice of the Martyrs Korea says, “The Christian community is mourning. Pastor T approached me and asked that we raise up prayers for Ethiopia, Tigray, for the Tigray Christians, and all the Christians in Ethiopia.”

“I have every reason to believe that she was probably on her knees in prayer the time that it happened.”

The attacks wounded 13 people as well. But hospitals in Tigray have been cut off from vital supplies, putting the wounded in more danger.
