Some 2.6 million people in the war-torn northern region of Ethiopia are in dire need of food aid.

It is being called “the worst disaster on Earth” and the situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia is expected to get even worse.

The United Nations says the nearly two-year conflict has left nearly half the population “severe” in need of food assistance. That is despite a ceasefire in March, which allowed aid deliveries to continue.

The United Nations has called for urgent action to prevent further disaster in the war-torn region. Tigrayan leaders allegedly refused to negotiate with the Ethiopian government.

So is peace a condition for ending the humanitarian crisis?
