Attempt to Attack Defense Forces Treasonous Nature of TPLF, Says Deputy PM


Addis Ababa, October 4/2020( ENA) Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF)’s attempt to attack Ethiopian National Defense Forces shows an extreme betrayal, said Deputy Prime Minister Demeke Mekonnen. 

The attempt of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) to attack the Ethiopian National Defense Forces (ENDF) shows the treasonous nature of the front, Deputy Prime Minister Demeke Mekonnen said.

In a press briefing he gave today, the deputy prime minister called on the public to cooperate with the army.

According to him, the attempt of Tigray State Special Forces to attack by crossing over to Amhara State the attack was foiled by Amhara security forces.

The army is taking law enforcement actions after it repulsed the attack, he added.

TPLF’s attempt to attack the defense forces that are the shields of the people of Tigray is worse than foreign aggression, the deputy premier stressed.
