"The last food distribution to the two refugee camps was done during the month of June, the ration supplies then were only enough for 30 days," Babar Baloch, spokesman of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), told a Geneva news briefing.
"There is a real danger of hunger among these refugees if supplies do not resume as they may have already run out of food supplies that were given to them," he said.
Conflict broke out between the Ethiopian central government and the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) in November.
