According to our reliable sources in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, the mining complex at Bisha and other targets in Eritrea were hit on 20 March by Ethiopian missiles shot from Tigray in Ethiopia.


The EPDP sources said the targets were more than two. Besides Bisha, the other targets included a military facility located between the villages of Tukul and Wutuh in the Mai Edaga area, and on an unidentified target near Barentu. The missile did not cause damage in Barentu but the Bisha mine sustained a slight damage while the military facility near Mai Edaga was heavily destroyed.

If true, this military action will constitute an unwarranted act of aggression, as was the air raid at 3 places in the spring of 2011, on the territorial sovereignty of the state of Eritrea which is already severely hurt by erroneous policies and acts of the regime.

For reasons only known to itself, the dictatorial regime in Asmara has so far failed to comment on the reported incident. But the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Mr. Hailemariam Desalegn, told reporters that his government has nothing to say about the incident “as long as there is no one claiming an attack” from the Ethiopian side.
