U.S.-Backed TPLF Breaks 5-Month Truce By Resuming War in Northern Ethiopia

Dismissing the Africa Union-led peace negotiations, the Tigray People's Liberation Front called for Western intervention in Ethiopia before resuming a war with the Ethiopian state on August 24. This ended a five-month truce with Ethiopia’s federal government, weeks after envoys from the United States and European Union visited its base. Pavan Kulkarni reports for People's Dispatch.
