The Ethiopian government has blamed Tigrayan forces for starting fresh fighting along the region’s borders.

The government’s communications office says they have breached a humanitarian truce that has been in place since March.

The statement comes after the Tigrayans accused the government of launching attacks on their southern positions from neighbouring Amhara on Wednesday morning.

The trading of accusations makes it clear that after months of a lull, the two sides are now engaged in active fighting.

Addis Ababa’s statement added that the army and security forces were responding to the attacks “successfully”.

The latest developments are feared to worsen a humanitarian crisis that has blighted the Horn of African country since the start of the war in late 2020.
