Ethiopia on Friday said it bombed rebel’s Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) Military Training Center, the fifth such bombardment this week in a campaign it says is targeting rebel facilities.Ethiopia Current Issue Fact Check has stated the latest attack was aimed at another site, currently serving TPLF for military training.
This site used to be the military training center for Ethiopian National Defence Forces before being appropriated by the TPLF to undertake military training for its illegal recruits, the government fact check platform indicated.
The site targeted by the air attack is also serving as a battle network hub by the terrorist organization, it is indicated.
It is to be recalled that armament stockpile of the terrorist group was successfully targeted during previous airstrike by the national army.
