The Battle For Tigray

Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands displaced as a result of fighting between Ethiopia’s military and Tigrayan rebel forces in the north. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration alleges that the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, the TPLF, led a surprise assault on a federal army base, which forced the government to retaliate. Now, the army is making a final push on Tigray’s capital, Mekelle. With neither side looking to back down, how can this conflict be resolved?
