  • In This Story: Tigray Conflict

    The Tigray conflict was an armed conflict that began in November 2020 in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia, between Tigray Region special forces led by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), and the Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF) in alliance with Amhara Region special forces.

    The conflict stemmed from the attempt of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed to distance the country’s politics from ethnic federalism, a power-sharing system giving regional influence to individual ethnic groups, by merging the ethnic and region-based parties of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front, which had governed Ethiopia for 30 years, into a nationwide Prosperity Party.

    The Egyptian Prime Minister declared victory on 30 November 2020.
