Ethiopian Prime Minister Office, in a statement today, claimed Federal and Regional forces have made major gains on 4 fronts against Tigray forces.
According to the statement, Ethiopian Federal Forces and Amhara regional forces have retaken strategic Gashena town in North Wollo zone Amhara. Arbit and Debeko towns situated to the west and north of Gashena have also come under ENDF & Amhara control.
In the South Wollo Zone of the Amhara region, Ethiopian forces have taken back Were Ilu, Genete, and Aqesta.
In the North Shewa Zone of Amhara region, Ethiopian forces claim to have retaken Shewa Robit town and Mezezo & Malale to the west of Shewa Robit have also been under the control of the Ethiopian government and regional forces.
From Chifra town of Afar region, which ENDF and Afar forces took a few days ago, Ethiopian Federal Troops have advanced towards Bati and Woldia towns. Alelu Sulula town situated to the east of Woldia and Chiftu town situated on Chifra-Bati road have come under ENDF & Afar control.
Tigray has not officially responded to all these claims. If all these claims are true, it means Tigray forces have lost some recently gained ground, and TDF’s main gains in the Amhara region i.e. Woldia, Lalibela, Sekota, Dessie and Kombolcha could be in danger too. In the coming days, fighting could reach these major towns.

If the gains by ENDF is confirmed, does this mean that tplf are running short of ammunition and war equipment?
And the newly purchased drone are becoming more significant in warfronts?
shortage of ammunition is not a problem. They fought in Tigray when they had nothing. Drones could be one of the reasons
TDF leaders have been heard comparing the stratific importance of the town of Gashesa to Mekele itself. In light of what we now know, with ENDF forces recapturing Gashena, what does this mean for TDF forces. Is there a way out for them??
It seems to be large scale withdrawal, not just from Gashena
Wars shall never be a solution, Ethiopia must rise to these very occasion and give peace a chance. We re not happy with the current state of affairs in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia needs such voices which call for peace.
