Time.news – Eritrean troops “have begun to withdraw” from the Tigré region. Official sources from Ethiopia make it known.
Yesterday, the G7 called for a “quick” withdrawal from the country, while Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced the withdrawal last week. The Eritrean military intervention in Tigré, the northernmost region of Ethiopia, dates back to November last year, following an alleged attack on Eritrean positions by a militia of the Tigré Liberation Front, the party that governs the region.
With their intervention, Asmara’s troops would play a crucial role in the military campaign that the Ethiopian army launched against Tigré for the regional elections organized by the Tigré Liberation Front. Several international organizations have accused the Eritrean army of massacring numerous civilians and raping Tigray women during the military operation.
