Eritrea Press Release

The Sunday attack of June 12, 2016, launched through the TPLF regime on the Tsorona Front was quashed on Monday (13 June) morning entailing heavy losses to its troops.

TPLF troops were compelled to retreat to locations beyond from where they initially unleashed the attack.

In this reckless attack whose ultimate aim is difficult to comprehend, more than 200 TPLF troops have been killed and more than 300 wounded.  These are conservative estimates.

Why did this callous bloodshed happen? And, for what purpose?

Those who have instigated this reckless act have attempted to provide the TPLF with political, media and diplomatic smoke-screen, both before and after the attack.  They have also deceitfully tried to apportion equal blame to the aggressor and the victim.  The Government of Eritrea will address these dimensions of the attack in subsequent statements.
