    This joint military operation along the border has nothing to do with Egypt but it is solely to attack and forcefully evict native Ethiopians or indigenous people who has settled on the periphery which is to be handed over to Sudan by evil TPLF/Woyane government. The Woyane government has been committing constant treason acts which left nations without a country and livelihood.
