The Sudanese government is said to be sending more troops to its border with neighboring Ethiopia.
The troops are reportedly stationed in the border town of Al Fashaqa province, where Ethiopian farmers are currently harvesting crops in a territory claimed by Sudan.
The area borders Ethiopia on the Tigrean side, where more than 50,000 refugees fleeing the recent fighting have crossed into Sudan.
“The Sudanese armed forces have continued to advance on the front lines inside Al-Fashaqa to retake the occupied territories and have set up bases on international lines,” Sudan’s state news agency SUNA reported.
Sudanese media say four soldiers have been killed and at least 27 others wounded in previous clashes.
On the other hand, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali posted a statement on his Twitter account saying that the militia’s attack on the border with Sudan would not affect the successful relations between Khartoum and Addis Ababa Ababa.
