Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s shift from “law enforcement operation” to “war” in Tigray
It is worth recalling that when the Tigray war began in November 2020, and Prime Minister Abiy denied that it was any such thing. Instead, as he told Ethiopians in a Tweet, the fighting was a “law enforcement operation” that would “wrap up soon”.
Five months later the situation looks rather different, with Abiy accepting that he is engaged in a war in Tigray. “We know the destruction this war has caused,” he said.
