The United States is gravely concerned by reports that dozens of civilians were killed or injured during a bombing of a village market in northern Tigray on June 22.  We strongly condemn this reprehensible act.  There are also credible reports that security forces denied medical personnel access to the victims of this terrible attack.  Denying victims urgently needed medical care is heinous and absolutely unacceptable.  We urge the Ethiopian authorities to ensure full and unhindered medical access to the victims immediately.  We also call for an urgent and independent investigation, as well as remedial action, to hold those responsible for this attack accountable.  The United States again urges an immediate ceasefire in Tigray, unhindered humanitarian access, and protection for civilians.
