Published:

The government of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmadinejad has promised to recapture the two cities of Tessi and Kombolza, two communities with a population of more than 200,000, on Monday, December 6. Ten days ago, when the TPLF Tigray rebels were 180 km from the capital Addis Ababa, they began to return to the Tigray area. The TPLF called the withdrawal “regional restructuring.”

This is the most important decision Said Debretsion Gebramichael, leader of the TPLF Tigray party. In fact, within a week, Tigrian troops were driving an express withdrawal on an axis nearly 200 kilometers in the direction of Tigray, leaving way for soldiers and pro-government militants to reinvest in most cities in the Afar region. And Amhara.

The TPLF leader also promised that the withdrawal would not reduce the Tigris’ forces.

An ambassador in Addis Ababa expresses some doubts. According to him, the TPLF lost units if the uprising was carried out without a major war. The losses, especially from drone strikes, have been a definite advantage on the battlefield for Addis Ababa since the end of November.

The cities of Dessie and Kombolcha in particular symbolize the reversal of the military situation. Their capture by the Tigris rebels in early November raised fears of a collapse of the national army. With the acquisition of both coalitions, Prime Minister Abi Ahmed and his government are once again posing as masters of the situation.

I believe the two main factors on the one hand were the mobilization of the population and therefore the amount of resistance faced by the DeGraine rebels, and on the other hand the federal government’s aviation force that upgraded and improved the drone equipment. This made it difficult for the Tigris forces to secure the undisclosed supply lines. To the point of pushing them to take back the time to formulate their strategy for the future.
