Cape Town – (DPA):
On Thursday, the Ethiopian army launched air strikes on the capital of Tigray province for the third time in four days.
According to a statement issued by the TPLF Chairman Gebermichael, civilians were also killed in the attack on Mekele.
The Ethiopian Air Force already bombed the city on Monday and Wednesday, killing and wounding civilians, according to the MILF.
The government confirmed the attacks, but claimed that they specifically targeted the front’s military installations.
The Ethiopian army launched a new military offensive against the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) rebels last week. The military conflict began 11 months ago when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed tried to oust the LTTE from power in Tigray province.
The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) dominated Ethiopian politics for a quarter of a century until Abiy came to power in 2018. Not many in Tigray feel unrepresented in the central government and demand greater autonomy.
