Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Vision Egypt News: - The Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, the author of the inflammatory statements in which he challenged US President Donald Trump regarding the "Renaissance Dam" agreement, may lead the country towards a civil war as he pledged that the military offensive in the northern Tigray region will continue.

The Ethiopian government accuses the Tigrayan forces of attacking a federal army base, while the Tigray region chief said the region was at war.

In a televised address, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Abe, said the military operation has been successful and will continue.

He said that the attack was in response to a bloody attack on an army camp, without mentioning the number of dead.

The Tigrayan People's Liberation Front was the strongest partner in the ruling coalition in Ethiopia until 2018, and since Abe took office after nationwide protests by the Oromo ethnicity, the party's strength has diminished.

Abe created a new ruling party, but the front did not join it.

In September 2020, the Tigrayan authorities pressed ahead with elections, in defiance of the nationwide delay in place in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The vote raised concerns that the front was paving the way for the creation of a breakaway state, with parliament and the government taking power without the approval of the federal government.

But the front said it was committed to keeping the region inside Ethiopia, but made it clear that it would defend "autonomy" and oppose what it described as Abe's attempt to build a strong "united" state.
