Ethiopian government moves to 'final stage' of operation against rebel rule in north

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced that the ultimatum against the insurgent Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces in the north of the country is over and the military operation will be in its “final phase”.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced that the ultimatum against the insurgent Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces in the north of the country is over and the military operation will be in its “final phase”.

In a statement he made on his social media accounts, Ahmed stated that the 3-day period given to the TPLF forces that govern Tigray state is over, and that the operation will proceed to the “final stage”.

Acknowledging his call and thanking the TPLF forces and militias who surrendered to the Ethiopian national army, Ahmed noted that these people saved the lives of their people by acting responsibly.

On the other hand, Ethiopia Attorney General announced that 34 companies associated with TPLF have frozen their bank accounts.

Ethiopian air force carried out an air attack on the city of Mekelle, the capital of Tigray yesterday, following the TPLF’s rocket attacks on Amhara state and neighboring Eritrea.

Prime Minister Ahmed had made a call on national television to surrender to TPLF forces last week.

Prime Minister Ahmed insists on operation

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces, which governs the Tigray province, attacked the national army units on 3 November, and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced on 4 November that they had decided to take a military action against the TPLF.

Ahmed, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after the peace treaty he made with his neighbor Eritrea, ignored the calls of international organizations for dialogue and stated that the operation would continue until the “junta” in the region was disarmed, a legal administration was established and the criminals were punished.

Claiming that the government of Addis Ababa was illegitimate for postponing the elections, the TPLF held the local government elections in September and won. After the elections, the national assembly announced that all ties with the local government had been severed.

The TPLF, which had a say in the ruling coalition and the country’s politics before Prime Minister Ahmed came to power in 2018, has been the target of many political groups in the country for years.

TPLF, which has recently been accused of being behind the terrorist attacks in the country, left the ruling coalition last year.

It is worried that Ahmed’s decision to operate will lead to prolonged clashes and even civil war in Tigray, where militias have been armed for years.
