ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Ethiopian government on Friday announced it will strike rebel Tigray People's Liberation Force (TPLF) positions.

In a press statement, the Ethiopia Government Communication Service said while the federal government's readiness to talk unconditionally is preserved, it will take action targeting the military forces of the TPLF.

"We, call upon our people's living in the Tigray region to stay away from the areas where the TPLF's military equipment and training facilities are located," the statement further said.

The Ethiopian government on Wednesday accused TPLF of resuming fighting.

Ethiopia, Africa's second most populous nation, has seen a devastating conflict between government allied troops and forces loyal to the rebel TPLF since November 2020.
