On 3 October 1935, Not long after the League acquitted both parties in the Walwal incident, Italian armed services from Eritrea invaded Ethiopia without a declaration of war leading Ethiopia to declare war on Italy beginning the Second Italian Abyssinian War.

On 7 October 1935, The League of Nations proclaimed Italy the assailant and started the slow process of enforcing sanctions. Nevertheless, these sanctions did not extend to several vital materials, such as oil, and were not carried out by all members of the League. International support was by this time low, with the united states of America increasing their exports to Italy in disgust of the inactivity of the League of Nations. Specifically, the United Kingdom and France did not take any serious action against Italy, such as blocking Italian access to the Suez Canal. Even actions such as the Italian use of some chemical weapons did little to change the League's passive approach to the situation.
