Addis Abeba — The Executive Committee of the ruling Prosperity Party (PP) sets directions to intensify the "law enforcement measures" that are being conducted against armed groups in the country that are accused of carrying out attacks against civilians. According to PP, the Executive Committee is currently holding its regular meeting to discuss national security issues and to deliberate on the ongoing "law enforcement measures" being carried out by federal and regional security forces. The PP Executive Committee further set directions for the implementation of earlier decision by the National Security Council to carry out "law enforcement measures to eliminate terrorist groups." Last week, heavy gun-battle involving regional security forces and joint rebel forces of the Gambella Liberation Front (GLF) and Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) on Thursday 16 June resulted in the death of dozens of civilians and security forces. Continued reports such as these underscore the urgency of ending the ongoing armed conflict in Ethiopia."
