Washington is “concerned” about the Tigray’s control of 2 Ethiopian cities


On Monday, the US State Department expressed concern over reports that the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) took over the cities of Disi and Kombolcha in Ethiopia’s Amhara region.


“The United States is concerned about reports of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) seizing Disi and Kombolcha,” Foreign Minister Anthony Blinken said in a tweet on Twitter.

“The continuation of the fighting prolongs the dire humanitarian crisis in northern Ethiopia. All parties must stop military operations and start ceasefire negotiations without preconditions,” he added.
