Ethiopia PM orders final offensive against dissident Tigray leaders

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Thursday ordered Ethiopia’s military to launch a remaining offensive towards Tigray’s dissident leaders of their regional capital Mekele, saying the deadline for give up had expired.

Abiy, the winner of final 12 months’s Nobel Peace Prize, late Sunday gave the Tigray Folks’s Liberation Entrance (TPLF) 72 hours to put down their arms.

The ultimatum was rejected by the leaders of the area, whose forces have been preventing federal troops within the nation’s north for 3 weeks, displacing over 40,000 folks and killing a whole bunch.

Ethiopia’s military — which in current days stated it was advancing on Mekele with tanks — had been directed “to conclude the third and remaining section” towards the TPLF, Abiy stated.
