Ethiopia Rebels Continue Advance on Addis Ababa

Tigray Defence Forces have continued their advance towards Addis Ababa just after citizens held a rally over the weekend.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has already told Ethiopians to take up arms to defend their neighborhoods against the rebel forces which was met with support.

The Tigrayan Defense Forces have already grown in number and formed alliances with 9 other rebels groups including the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA).

OLA Commander Jaal Marroo has already claimed that government forces have started defecting to their side and that they are already 25 miles from Addis Ababa.

“What I am sure (of) is that it is going to end very soon. We are preparing to push for another launch, and for another attack. The government is just trying to buy time, and they are trying to instigate civil war in this country, so they are calling for the nation to fight,” said Jaal.
