Ethiopia’s government announces that it has recaptured the strategic towns of Dessie and Kombolcha, more than a month after Tigrayan rebels claimed control of the two cities.

“The historic Dessie city and the trade and industry corridor city Kombolcha have been freed by the joint gallant security forces,” the government communications service says on Twitter.
