We’re All in this Together: Ethiopia’s Tigray Crisis

Fighters of the Ethiopian National Liberation Front, a group fighting for regional autonomy in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray state.

Ethiopian citizens have been urged to defend the capital city against rebels who are threatening to attack Addis Ababa.

Tigray People’s Democratic Movement (TPDM), along with other armed rebel groups, said they would bring down what they called “tyranny” in Ethiopia.

The TPDM is part of the newly formed alliance – United Ethiopian Democratic Forces (UEDF) – which has vowed to topple the government of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn by launching attacks within and outside of the country

Ethiopia is in a state of crisis from armed rebel groups who are threatening to attack Addis Ababa and overthrow the government, so citizens have been urged to defend Addis against rebels… Again… Lets translate it again: Rebels have vowed to topple the government of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn by launching attacks within and outside of the country. This tells us there are probably going to be more terrorist attacks around this time in Africa due to this civil unrest.
