International media claims heavy fight continues in Mekelle

(Brana Press) Even if Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared victory over the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) after federal forces captured the regional capital Mekelle last weekend, media reports that the heavy fight still continues.

According to Reuters, TPLF leaders have dug into surrounding mountains in what appears to be an emerging guerrilla strategy that leads the fight to continue in search of the leaders.

“One aid worker in touch with Tigray told Reuters that fighting continued to the north, south, and west of the highland city of 500,000 people,” reports Reuters.

However, different local media including the state media report that Mekelle is returning to normalcy after the Federal police headed to the city on Saturday.
