Last week, it reported that Ethiopian military leader has promised that the more than a month unrest which has been going on in Tigray will come to an end soon, the spokesman clarifies that civilians should leave the province as military actions will be promptly taken against the resistance.

Tigray and Ethiopia unrest all started after the country's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed decided he want a change in governance  by removing all officials of Tigray accusing them of impunity and corruption.

Ahmed said his new administration is toward sustainability development and best approach is to use a different dimension.

As a result of this action, Tigray citizens have decided to form their own system of government which the central authority described as "illegal and unconstitutional".

It was reported that there was heavy military presence in the province after which the central government confirms that the resistance has been conquered and the country is now free of tyranny.

The military faced a fierce battle in the region that previously contain more than 500,000 individuals, communication was first cut off before the battle  which took more than a day.

Before this last operation, the military have ensured to hold control of other provinces before launching final attack to the stronghold of Tigray People's Liberation Front(TPLF)  in Mekelle.

A state reporter said "Mekelle is under central government control, and military are searching all suspected areas the junta might be hiding."

 Prime Minister Abiy tweeted "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."

Before this reported success, many Ethiopian citizens has fled their homeland to neighboring country Sudan so as not to be caught in crossfire between the two opposing bodies.

The number of casualties has not been reported by both sides for now.
