Amid peace push, rebels say university hit in an airstrike
Getachew Reda, spokesperson for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), said that “drones targeted Mekelle University’s Adi Haki campus.” He did not share any details of casualties or damage caused by the attack. Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s “massive offensive” in Tigray “is crumbling like a house of cards”, he said on Twitter.
The Ethiopian government is yet to respond to the rebels’ claim. Military sources, who requested anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media, told Anadolu Agency that the TPLF “attempted an incursion via the Humera front” in northwestern Ethiopia on Monday. Hopes for peace talks between the TPLF and Abiy’s government were handed a welcome boost on Sunday after the rebels said they were willing to halt fighting and take part in dialogue led by the African Union.
