Rescuers said on condition of anonymity that the attack took place on Friday night in Deadbit. It is located in the northwest of the region near the Eritrean border. However, there was no statement from army spokesman Colonel Garnet Adane and government spokesman Legacy Tulu. The prime minister’s spokesperson also declined to comment on queries from local media.
