The Prime Minister of Ethiopia on Friday called on the savage forces to surrender on the 10th day to the military confrontations in the northernmost region of the country, communications have been suspended.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed called on the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) to surrender to other security forces in the north of the country within two to three days.
He made the call in a video message broadcast on Ethiopian television on Friday.
“The forces of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front have been encircled on all fronts,” the prime minister said.
The TPLF force commanders have now reached a point they could not communicate orders across their fighters, he said.
“Parents in Tigray should save their children from being pawns of war and destruction launched by the TPLF junta,” he said.
With the armed conflict on its 10th day on Friday, internet and other forms of communication between the Tigray region and other parts of the country remained cut off.
He said that the TPLF groups were completely defeated in their 11th hour.
After the TPLF forces annexed the northern command of the federal army stationed in the Tigris region, Ethiopia began what it described as a law enforcement operation in Tigris, killing soldiers and looting military assets.
Ethiopia’s military counterattack against Egyptian TPLF forces continues in Tigray, killing more than 550 rebels so far.
Ethiopian troops have made significant progress in capturing the cities of the western Tigris, stretching from the Dancha to the Eritrean border town of Ala Alambesa.
At least 550 TPLF fighters have been killed, Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation quoted Maj. Gen. Belay Seyoum, the head of the Northern Command, which was attacked last week by the TPLF junta, as saying. He said on Tuesday that 19 TPLF fighters also surrendered.
