Since resumption of active hostilities by the TPLF rebels this August, the Government of Ethiopia has been taking preventive measures to degrade the rebel group’s capabilities from launching further attacks.
The National Defense Forces have been carrying out their mission with great care to avoid collateral damage with precision strikes on rebel military assets.
The TPLF group continue to terrorize local populace by hiding its arms and leaders on the run within health facilities, schools, places of worship, residential areas and other social service facilities with the express intent of creating outrage from a possible civilian attack.
This group is additionally using properties under the United Nations and other humanitarian aid institutions for transportation and storage of weapons caches.
Recently, the Ethiopian Air Force has taken action targeting the locations of military equipment and arsenals of the TPLF in Adi Daero, Tigray region.
And as expected, pre-drafted fallacious claims have been released by TPLF supporters that civilians have been targeted in this operation. Nonetheless, Ethiopian National Defense Forces ensure that military assets are isolated from civilians before taking action.
It is also to be noted that the TPLF has internationalized the conflict by chartering aircraft and weapons from Ethiopia’s historical enemies, as was evident from the plane that was shot down ferrying weapons to TPLF held areas.
The airspace of Ethiopia has been under the strict surveillance and control of the Ethiopian Air Force since that particular incident.

Note verbale dated 19 September 2022 from the Permanent Mission of Ethiopia to the United Nations Office at Geneva addressed to the President of the Human Rights Council
@Ethiopia_Geneva had made a strong evidence-backed rebuttal shared on…
The fact that the ICHREE chose to selectively look into this allegation and reinvestigate is not triggered by gaps in JIT findings and conclusion; it is rather prompted by a deliberate desire to create an agenda and smear the ENDF’s reputation. This is wholly unacceptable...

Who is behind the blockage of basic services in Tigray region?
