Ethiopia establishes curfew in liberated areas

Addis Ababa, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) The Ethiopian State of Emergency Operation Command, which on Thursday celebrates its first month, established a curfew in the areas liberated from the occupation of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF).

The measure prohibits the movement or stay in the streets due to the circumstances caused by the war in northern Ethiopia and will be indefinitely implemented from this Thursday at 18:00 hours, local time, to Friday at 06:00 hours, local time.

According to a Command’s communique, the main objective of the measure is to establish a dynamic that allows “maintaining peace and stability in the areas liberated” with the aim of returning gradually and safely to normal.

The Ethiopian Council of Ministers declared on November 2 a national emergency state for six months, to protect the population from the atrocities perpetrated by the TPLF.

Later, the House of Peoples’ Representatives (Parliament) passed that resolution, amid reports to the TPLF’s invasion to the strategic cities of Kombolcha and Dessie, in the Amhara region, and its intentions to advance towards the federal capital.

Since November 4, 2020, the Government has been engaged in an armed confrontation against the Front. This group has been accused of breaking laws and violating human rights, among other crimes, and has been declared terrorist by Parliament.
