A new wave of violence has erupted in Ethiopia in the beginning of November, 2020. A number of soldiers and civilians have been killed so far. The dispute lies between the regional forces (Tigray People’s Liberation Force (TPLF)) and the national government (Prosperity Party).
Tensions transformed into a full-fledged civil war on November 4 when Prime Minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed stated that Tigrayans had attacked a national military base and sent his troops to the region of Mekele, an area governed by the TPLF. Ethiopian military has heavily bombed the region and destroyed all weaponry.
