A week after reaching an agreement with the Ethiopian prime minister to withdraw from the country’s Tigray region, Eritrean forces have shown no signs of leaving.

The forces have not left the area or shown any intention to leave, according to Getachew Reda, a spokesman for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, whose forces have been fighting a coalition of Ethiopian federal forces, the regional forces of Amhara and those of Eritrea in Tigray for the past five months.

“They haven’t left,” Getachew said in an interview with Al Jazeera. “In fact, the Eritrean regime does not intend to withdraw its forces.”
