There is now reports that the Eritrean Defence Force (EDF) is moving inside Western Tigray Region. They are now moving with 50 vehicles filled with soldiers. The EDF removed most of their soldiers and battalions after the “unilateral” ceasefire. They still kept some annexed land from the Tigray region. Therefore, today’s news isn’t shocking.
The EDF have been a partner in the Tripartite Alliance and the Eritrean seems to have made a war-pact with the Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ali and not a “peace-agreement”. Where they are both allied to destroy and get rid of the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF). That is for the Asmara government finalizing old grudges and getting rid of an old arch-enemy of the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ).
So, the Eritrean just went home for resting across the border in the end of June and is returning a month later. This is happening as the Tigray Defence Force (TDF) has had victories upon victories in Afar, Amhara and in other parts of Tigray. The TDF will have more than just the Amhara Para-Military Group “Fano” to combat in the Western Tigray. That seems to be welcoming redeployment for the PM from Eritrea.
The people of Tigray and the ones still remaining should be worried. As the Eritrean soldiers have ravished and destroyed the region in the recent months. They have raped, depleted and been vile inside Tigray. This is why the news of a possible return should worry anyone. That is not only making it harder for the TDF to return the territory, but the civilians in Western Tigray will be even more endangered. As this region is already hit with levels of starvation, lack of ability to get humanitarian aid and the continues siege of the region as well.
We know the conflict is far from over. The same with all of the youths who are deployed to fight the TDF across the Republic as well. This will prolong the agony and the suffering of the Republic. The EDF is clearly coming to “save the day” for Addis Ababa. What that shows is the weakness of Ethiopian National Defence Force (ENDF) when they need the EDF to be the “saving grace”. This shows that the “sovereignty” is worth. When you allow an alien invasion happen and does it deliberately. Peace.
