Eritrea accused of fresh attacks in Tigray

The rebels in northern Ethiopia’s Tigray region have accused neighbouring Eritrea of carrying out attacks.

The Tigray People Liberation Front’s spokesperson, Getachew Reda, wrote on Twitter that fresh attacks had been launched against the group’s forces.

This comes days after the rebels withdrew from neighbouring regions and the Ethiopian military said it would not pursue them to their region in Tigray.

Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki told state media over the weekend that his troops would prevent any attack on Eritrea as well as any threats to Ethiopia’s stability.

Eritrean troops had been fighting alongside Ethiopia in the war against the Tigrayan rebels which broke out in November 2020. The war has since morphed into a brutal civil war.

Neither Eritrea nor the Ethiopian government has responded to the latest accusation by the rebels.

The international community had expressed hope for a ceasefire after the rebels withdrew from other regions and the government said it would not pursue them to the north.
