Ethiopia Orders Deployment Of All Weapons To Stop Rebels Advance

Ethiopia‘s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, has urged his supporters to use any weapons they have to stop an advance by Tigrayan rebel forces.

Mr Abiy said it was the duty of citizens to, “block, destroy and bury” the forces of the TPLF rebels.

He issued the appeal on Facebook after the rebels said they had made further territorial gains in the Amhara region, taking them closer to the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

A TPLF spokesman, Getachew Reda, said they had captured Kombolcha city and that their only aim was to break a siege of Tigray.

A spokesman of the rebel Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) also said they had taken Kemise city – about 325 kilometres from Addis Ababa – and were fighting with government forces.

Ethiopian government has denied the claim  by the TPLF rebels that they have seized Kombolcha and nearby Dessie in the Amhara region.

US state department says it’s gravely concerned by the expansion of fighting between Ethiopia’s government forces and Tigrayan rebels in the north of the country.
