For the first time in about a year, the Ethiopian government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front announced on Wednesday the renewal of fighting between them in the region.
The Tigray conflict began in November 2020 when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed sent federal forces into the region to control local authorities emanating from the Tigray Front after they were accused of attacking army barracks.
The conflict has killed thousands of people in this African country.
