The continuing and terrifying attacks on civilians by the TPLF destroyed much of the schools in the northern region of the country. That figure only includes Afar and Amhara states, Mekuria said in Addis Ababa.
For example, the criminal group intentionally dismantled in Afar 445 schools that host more than 88,000 students from different educational levels, the minister explained during a meeting in which he presented the sector’s achievements and limitations during the last 12 months.
In November 2020, the TPLF attacked the National Defense Force in Tigray and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed responded with a military offensive to neutralize it and restore legality in the demarcation.
Since then, legal proceedings began against several of its leaders and Parliament later declared it a terrorist organization.
