Several Missiles Landed In Asmara Late Saturday

Earlier, at least one missile was fired from the northern Ethiopian state of Tigray at neighbouring Eritrea; the breakaway region remains engulfed in a conflict with Addis Abba. The rocket fell south of the Eritrean capital of Asmara.

Six explosions were reported in Asmara, late on Saturday, according to the US State Department.

The fighting in Ethiopia’s north broke out in early November after the federal government accused the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the ruling party in the Tigray region, of attacking a local military base.

The Ethiopian armed forces have launched an operation in the defiant region. The prime minister’s office announced a state of emergency in Tigray for a period of six months. Over 43,000 people have reportedly fled to Sudan over the escalation of tensions.
