Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has warned the international community against interfering in its battle with Tigray.
The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and Ethiopian forces have been locked in a battle since the 4th of November.
Ahmed’s warning to the international community is coming on the back of the planned visit by Aftican Union Envoys. The AU has since called for a peaceful resolution as it tries to mediate in the running battle.
The Tigrayan crisis has seen TPLF forces and the Ethiopian Army exchange hostilities. At least, 41,000 Ethiopians have been forces to leave for Sudan. The UN says that number will rise to 1million should the war last long for 6 months.
Ethiopian and Tigrayan forces have laid claims to taking pounds of flesh from each other, as civilians continue to live in fear.
The UN has warned the Ethiopian government against hurting civilians in Mekelle, Tigray capital with over 500,000 residents. Ahmed has insisted that there will be no dialogues between Ethiopia and the TPLF.
Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa and the most populous in the Horn of Africa.
The international community has warned the warring parties about the economic dangers of a war in the country.
Tigray, the northern part of Ethiopia with aboutn5 million residents, is the politically strongest region in the world.
The TPLF accused Ethiopia of bias when it postponed the Presidential election in August over COVID-19.
