At least six explosions were reported on Sunday at the Eritrea capital from Tigray moments after Ethiopia declared victory in the region.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed made the declaration on Saturday as he confirmed the task ahead is to provide humanitarian aid and arrest Tigray’s People Liberation Front (TPLF).
“I am pleased to share that we have completed and ceased the military operations in the Tigray region. Our focus now will be on rebuilding the region and providing humanitarian assistance while Federal Police apprehend the TPLF clique.”” said PM Abiy Ahmed

The attack was the third one in Asmara as TPFL leaders accused Ethiopia of interfering in the military operations in Tigray.
Asmara airport and other military facilities are reported by diplomats in Addis Ababa to have been hit by the explosives but it is still unclear the damage caused.
TPFL leaders have stood their ground and promised to fight Ethiopia forces operating in Tigray as they relocate from Mekelle at a time when thousands of people have migrated to Sudan.
It is however not clear if it is indeed true that Ethiopian forces have taken control as said by PM Abiy Ahmed on social media.
