Turkey evacuates nationals from Ethiopia’s Tigray

ANKARA

Turkish nationals, who were stuck in Ethiopia's Tigray region, were evacuated to Addis Ababa, Turkey’s foreign minister said Wednesday.

“We brought our citizens, who were caught between the conflicts in the #Tigray region of Ethiopia, to Addis Ababa with our intensive initiatives,” Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Twitter.

Cavusoglu added that the Turks will soon re-unite with their families in Turkey.

Ethiopia launched what it described as a law enforcement operation Nov. 4 in Tigray after forces of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) attacked the northern command of the Ethiopian army.
