Leaders in Ethiopia’s war-hit Tigray pledged to drive out enemies from the region suggesting fighting will continue despite a Federal Government ceasefire declaration.
Tigrayan forces were on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, conducting mop-up operations against Ethiopian Government forces retreating from the regional capital Mekelle and the city was 100 percent back under their control.
Although, the spokeswoman for the Prime Minister, a Military spokesman, and the head of the Government’s Emergency Taskforce in Tigray did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The retreat follows days of territorial gains by the Tigrayan forces battling Ethiopia’s government and its allies.
According to a witness, the Eritrean soldiers had not been seen since Monday night, June 28, 2021; adding that there was a large movement of Eritrean troops out of Shire towards a town in the north.
