Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says he is returning to the capital Addis Ababa from the battlefront after pro-government forces claimed major advances in recent days against Tigrayan forces. After the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) reported significant territorial gains as part of a march towards Addis Ababa, amid a conflict that has been raging since November 2020, Abiy announced last month that he would head to the battlefront – handing over his regular duties to his deputy. In recent days, the government has announced the recapture of several towns, including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lalibela which is famed for its 12th-century rock-hewn churches. On Monday, the government announced its forces had recaptured the strategic towns of Dessie and Kombolcha. The TPLF has dismissed the government’s claims, saying the rebels were making strategic withdrawals and remained undefeated.
