Last week, the Tigray Defense Forces have Controlled Strategic town of Dessie and Kombolcha. They are also advancing south and east fast. This video shows the TDF in the center of Dessie town and that they were welcomed by the residents of Dessie. Please watch it and judge it for yourself.
The government of Tigray has said the main aim of the military counter attacks is to stop the genocide on Tigray, push the invaders out of Tigray, and end the siege. As the Abiy Ahmed government and his allies have put Tigray under siege, no aid and medicine has entered Tigray and people are dying of hunger. Also, the Amhara forces supported by the Eritrean troops and Ethiopian federal troops are controlling western Tigray and committing genocide. So, Tigray is fighting to stop the genocide on Tigray, push the invaders out of Tigray, and end the siege.
