Ethiopia’s defense minister on the governments ‘final military operation’ in Tigray | DW Interview

Ethiopia’s prime minister Abiy Ahmed has announced what he says would be "a final military operation" against Tigray province, after local leaders ignore his surrender ultimatum. Earlier, the federal government carried out what it called surgical airstrikes on Tigray’s regional capital – Mekele. The government has so far resisted international pressure for mediation in the conflict. But fallout from two-weeks of fighting has the potential to destablize the entire region and has already started what the UN says is a full-scale humanitarian crisis. DW talks to Kenea Yadeta about the government’s military operations in the Tigray region.
