Addis Ababa, November 6 Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiyah made a televised speech on the evening of the 6th, saying that the country’s army carried out air strikes in the northern Tigray state.

Abi said that the air strikes were aimed at the military targets of “dangerous groups”, not civilians. He called on local people to reduce gatherings to avoid accidental casualties. Abi also called on the people of Tigray State and the security forces to hand over members of the “dangerous group” to the government.

The local government of Tigray State also told the outside world that the outskirts of Mek’ele, the state’s capital, were hit by air strikes, but no casualties were caused by the air strikes.

In recent days, the situation in northern Ethiopia has become increasingly tense. The “Tigray People’s Liberation Front” attacked the Wehrmacht base in Tigray State in the early hours of the 4th and attempted to snatch the Wehrmacht artillery and other military equipment.

Abi said on the 4th that the Ethiopian government has taken military action against the organization. The Ethiopian Council of Ministers passed a resolution and issued a statement on the same day, deciding to implement a six-month state of emergency in Tigray Region. 

The statement said that the implementation of the state of emergency is to maintain the peace of the country, ensure the safety of citizens, and prevent actions that may cause further turbulence and instability in the country.

The “Tigray People’s Liberation Front” is the core political party of the former Ethiopian ruling party, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front, and it actually controlled the Ethiopian regime. In December 2019.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiyah formally established the new ruling party, the Ethiopian Prosperity Party, excluding the “Tigray People’s Liberation Front”. Since then, the contradictions between the two parties have intensified
