Ethiopian federal govt refutes alleged airstrike in Tigray

The Ethiopian federal government has refuted the alleged airstrike targeting civilian areas in the Tigray region's capital Mekelle and its neighbouring. The accusation was made by Getachew Reda, executive committee member and spokesperson for the outlawed the Tigray People's Liberation Front, in a Twitter post that the alleged airstrike on Monday attacked "civilian targets in and outside Mekelle", according to reports.

Legesse Tulu, Ethiopian federal government spokesperson said the government would not attack its own city. Meanwhile, the Ethiopian government on Monday revealed that at least 30 civilians were killed due to an attack by rebel forces. As per a statement by the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, forces loyal to the TPLF had recently launched fresh attacks on Amhara and Afar regions, neighbouring the Tigray region, "plundering property and starving children, mothers, and the elderly to death". They have indiscriminately targeted and shelled civilian villages namely Chifra and Wuchale lately and killed more than 30 civilians at Wuchale alone," the statement read. The govt also expressed its concern over lack of response from the international community in condemning the perpetuated atrocities of the Tigray People's Liberation Front.
