Some 42,000 refugees have fled over the border to Sudan and TPLF rockets have hit neighbouring Eritrea. Tigrayan forces have fired rockets at the airport of Eritrea’s capital Asmara, while Ethiopian soldiers have been pulled from peacekeeping missions in Somalia and South Sudan. The U.N. mission in South Sudan said it was aware of the three soldiers’ repatriation. Although Ethiopia is ultimately responsible for the conduct and movement of its 2,000 troops in South Sudan, the statement said, discrimination due to ethnicity could violate international law. Ethiopia has described the Tigray fighting as an internal law enforcement matter.

Thousands of people are already believed to have died and there has been widespread destruction from aerial bombardment and ground fighting since the war began on Nov. 4. If confirmed, the presence of Eritrean ground forces would amount to a major escalation of the conflict. In Tigray, satellite images showed Ethiopian troops in the ancient town of Axum and trenches dug across the local airport’s runway. Axum’s history and ruins give Ethiopia its claim to be one of the world’s oldest centres of Christianity. Abiy repeated his position on Wednesday that the Tigray fighting was an internal law enforcement matter.
