Ethiopia says Tigray forces fired into neighbouring region

Ethiopia’s government accused forces loyal to the governing party in the northern Tigray region of firing rockets into the neighbouring Amhara region, raising fears the ongoing fighting could draw in other parts of the country.

Two airports in Amhara state were targeted late on Friday with one of the rockets hitting the airport in Gondar, partially damaging it, said Awoke Worku, spokesperson for Gondar central zone. A second projectile fired simultaneously landed just outside of the airport at Bahir Dar.
