ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia

Ethiopia’s Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) has once again fired at least four rockets into Eritrea, media reports said on Friday.

Rockets fired by TPLF forces landed near residential areas in Eritrea's capital of Asmara, as well as towns such as Dekemehari, Gemehalo and Nefasit, the Eritrean Press said in a report.

No casualties have been reported yet.

Ethiopia accused the outlawed TPLF and its forces of trying to internationalize the military measures it has been facing from the Ethiopian National Defense Forces.

Two weeks ago, TPLF fighters fired rockets targeting the airport of Asmara, Eritrea's capital. They also fired rockets targeting airports of two cities in Ethiopia's Amhara regional state.
