Ethiopian gov't to protect heritage from Tigray Front's attacks
Addis Ababa, Aug 9 (Prensa Latina) The Ethiopian Government will adopt measures to protect the nation's religious and cultural heritage from the attacks of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs assured on Monday.
The attacks on the Amhara region raised concerns for religious and other institutions, but the country is working to ensure that the sacred and historic sites are well protected, the Foreign Ministry stated in a communique.
According to the text, in the last eight months, the terrorist organization has committed looting and destruction in several Ethiopia's northern regions, and in addition to endangering the lives of millions of citizens, it also attacks national and international relics.
We have a duty to safeguard our identity from the TPLF criminality and we will fulfill that commitment in every state in Ethiopia, the document stresses.
Despite the armistice declared by the Government, the Front continues with its hostility, hindering humanitarian assistance to the regional state of Tigray and frustrating the farmers' ability to take advantage of the rainy season, the communique stated.
