Is Ethiopia Stuck in a Guerrilla War in Tigray Region?

 The Guardian published on 4 April 2021 an article titled "Ethiopia Is Fighting 'Difficult and Tiresome' Guerrilla War in Tigray, Says PM" by Jason Burke.

After declaring a couple of months ago a decisive victory in Ethiopia's "police action" in Tigray Region, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has now acknowledged Ethiopian central government forces are engaged in a guerrilla war that is "difficult and tiresome."

Comment:  The outcome may well depend on how long Eritrean forces are willing to commit significant numbers of troops to the conflict in support of the Ethiopian National Defense Forces and whether they can maintain morale in a foreign war.
