Today, The Terrorist TPLF captured Magale and Abala, and also waged a war in Aseda area of Berahle district,”
The people of Tigray must stop the madness of this terrorist TPLF. Mothers of Tigray should not sacrifice their children for the benefit of a few members of the group deceived by lies,” statement underlined.
