Ethiopia sends troops to Djibouti near Eritrea's Assab Port

(Eritrean Press) 05 July 2016 - Intelligent sources have reported that the separatist Tigray Liberation Front, the Ethiopian ruling party, dispatched a large-scale military to Djibouti, near the Eritrean port of Assab (Aseb).

The United States, which is informed of the soldiers movement, has chosen to ignore the latest TPLF activities in the North West of the Tadjourah district of Djibouti.

Ten days ago, the Tigray Liberation Front (TPLF) had made an effort to penetrate the Bure front near Assab and pushed back by Eritrean force after an hour of fighting near the two countries borders.
Three days before the Bure skirmish, TPLF had attempted to invade Eritrea in the central Tsorona front where it suffered a heavy defeat with over 200 of its soldiers killed and 300 wounded.
The TPLF uses of a third country to create a new war front has been informally approved by France, who has a military agreement with the former colony Djibouti, according to the intelligent source.
