Ethiopia Probing Cross-Border AttackOn Sudanese Troops

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has said his government is “closely following” a cross-border attack on Sudanese troops by Ethiopian forces and militia.

Sudan’s army on Wednesday issued a statement saying one of its units was hit by “an ambush by Ethiopian forces and militias inside Sudanese territories”, AFP reported.

There were “casualties and damage”.

Mr Abiy has said such incidents will not break the bond between the two countries as “we always use dialogue to resolve issues”.

“Those fanning discord clearly do not understand the strength of our historical ties,” he tweeted.

Tens of thousands of Ethiopian refugees have fled to Sudan since November when Ethiopian federal troops started fighting with Tigray regional forces.
