It is possible to enter Mekelle without targeting innocent citizens, without harming our cities and heritage.” Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed
The people of Tigray have proved in practice that they are not with the greedy Junta.
In all areas of Tigray where the Defence Forces have been victorious, the people of Tigray have shown their love for the country and their respect for the Armed Forces.
The people of Tigray, apart from a few evil forces armed by Junta, did their best to support the Defence Forces until they entered Mekelle. This hastened the victory of the army and the defeat of the junta.
The greedy Junta is by no means suitable for the people of Tigray. The people of Tigray have stood by the truth and opposed the evil intentions of the junta and provided similar support to the army until entering Mekelle. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for this.
In the city and its environs, the junta destroyed health facilities, schools, bridges, roads, and offices. He thus proved himself to be an enemy of his own people. I promise that we will do everything we can to help the people of Tigray return to peaceful living by quickly rebuilding the infrastructure that the Junta has destroyed.
In this campaign, without being targeted innocent citizens, without harming our cities and heritage, have been able to enter Mekelle
