The North Wollo Zone has been completely liberated from TPLF

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) continues to suffer battle losses in the Wollo area, northern Ethiopia. Its latest devastating loss happened in Mersa, Woldiya, Kobo and the city of Alamata which is only about 165 kilometres south of Mekelle.

EBC, Ethiopian State Media, on Saterday said “The joint Ethiopian security forces controlled Mersa, Woldiya, Kobo and Girana”

The report added that Ethiopian forces have controlled strategic locations , along the Zobel mountain range , including mountainous areas North of Raya.

It has been over a week now since the Ethiopian government disclosed that Ethiopian forces have fully controlled strategic positions and are able to cut the Woldiya – Mekelle route – a supply line for the TPLF.

The places the Ethiopian government claimed to have controlled, as disclosed in EBC report on Friday, North of Raya are close to the Tigray region.

If the claim by the Ethiopian government is right, the TPLF will not have an access point to the Tigray region via Woldiya.

The Afar -Mekelle alternative route is not possible for TPLF. The last option is from the Sekota side – north of east of Lalibela. That is not an easy route too as Ethiopian Forces have control over a key military position.

According to a government report, the loss in Mersa, where the TPLF forces were engaged from the direction they did not anticipate, is said to be devastating. Hundreds killed, thousands wounded and the remaining surrendered. Libso, Kille and Habru districts are also under the Ethiopian forces.

The next stop for the Ethiopian forces is believed to be Mekelle.
