Three rockets were fired Thursday night by forces of Ethiopia’s Tigray region on the capital of neighboring Amhara region, local officials said Friday.
There were no casualties or damage.
A communications official in the Amhara region, Gizachew Muluneh, told AFP Friday that three rockets had been fired at Bahir Dar from Tigray, but missed their targets.
In Bahir Dar, about 200 kilometers south of the Tigray border, journalists were prevented from accessing the sites where the rockets fell.
Authorities in Tigray could not be immediately reached.
