The admission in a letter to the UN Security Council - and posted online by Eritrea's Ministry of Information - comes a day after UN aid chief Mark Lowcock said the world body had not seen any proof that Eritrean soldiers have withdrawn.
The UN’s humanitarian partners are receiving corroborated reports of targeted civilian killings, sexual and gender-based violence, forced displacement, restricted movements of civilians and extensive looting of civilian property.
Washington says reports of Eritrean involvement in the Tigray conflict are credible, although both Ethiopia and Eritrea have repeatedly denied the claim.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed rejects claims his country was on a path to all-out war, promising to end the offensive in the northern Tigray region, where security sources say hundreds have died in recent clashes.
