WAtoday News: Plane shot down amid fighting, despite PM’s assertions: Tigray chief

Ethiopia: Conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region is still rife despite Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s assertions that government troops had ceased military operations in the dissident province after capturing its capital on Saturday, according to the region’s president.

Debretsion Gebremichael, the leader of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, said on Sunday (Monday AEDT), that his forces had regained control of Axum, a city the federal army took a week ago. They also shot down a MiG-23 aircraft and had its pilot in custody, he said by text message.

“The Prime Minister said yesterday their mission is complete, but he was caught today bombing Tigray,” Debretsion said. “We’ll take back all towns based on our plan. The initiative is ours now.”
