Conflict between federal forces and TPLF continues
According to information received by the World News Superfast, despite Mekele’s seizure on 28 November, clashes between federal forces and the TPLF continue in parts of the rural areas.

His account has been slightly edited for brevity and clarity. According to information received by World News Superfast, on the night of 3 November, I was in the operating room of the hospital. Suddenly, the lights went out. The emergency room was then flooded with severely wounded soldiers. They were at least 60 from both sides. I am a gynecologist but I had to help. At that moment, I witnessed five deaths.
The next morning, the banks were closed. There was no electricity, no mobile phone network nor water
According to information received by World News Superfast, everything happened out of the blue and no one was ready for it, in terms of food preservation and cash money. Luckily, I had some food at home and a little cash, but I had to save it in every way possible. In the first two weeks of the war, there were no problems with the food supply. But how can you buy something after the banks are closed? Some people who had a lot of cash in their hands managed to buy large amounts of grain. And later, when the banks temporarily reopened, the shortage began. Food prices rose alarmingly.
Supply of basic food items started running out
According to information received by World News Superfast, tomatoes were being sold at 100 birr per kg, up from 20 birr; Potato was 40 bir per kg, 10 bir. The supply of basic food items began to run out. Bread, injari, teff and wheat grains disappeared. I faced the danger of hunger. Some of my friends were already hungry. Fortunately, the people of Mekele were all sorts, despite the fact that me and my friends were Amharic-speakers. It was our Tigrean neighbors and friends who were feeding us during those difficult times.
The shops were lending us, they were all very kind
According to information received by World News Superfast, for example, a friend of mine had been eating at his landlord’s house for about a month. He did not ask her to pay the rent. The shops were lending to us. They were all very kind. As the fighting intensified, all medical treatments that were not related to the conflict were excluded from the priority of war casualties. The beds were full and all employees had to concentrate. As of 28 November in Tigre there were 27 new casualties from all combat fronts on a daily basis.
