According to Leges, one of the attacks hit a military command post and training center belonging to the Tigre People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) – the region’s ruling party – in the town of Mai Tsebri.
A second strike targeted the town of Adwa where Legacy alleged that the TPLF was manufacturing military equipment and counterfeit Ethiopian National Defense Forces uniforms.
The TPLF denied that the Ethiopian Air Force had targeted military bases in Tigre on Sunday, and instead said the attacks targeted a hospital and a garment factory.
“Ironically, they also targeted what’s left of Alameda Textric in Edva,” he wrote. “The textile factory was completely destroyed by Ethio-Eritrean forces months ago.”
Getachev further denied the Legacy, saying “no military targets” were hit.
Communications are down in Tigre and it was not immediately possible to reach TPLF, human sources or witnesses on the ground for comment.
Abiy sent central government troops who had driven the TPLF out of Mekel late last year. But forces allied to the TPLF launched a counteroffensive this year, capturing Mekel and almost all of Tigre, and seizing swaths of Amhara.
