The Sudan’s military said on Sunday its forces had repelled an attempt by Ethiopian troops to push deep into the disputed Al-Fashqa border area.
The head of Sudan’s military, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, told reporters the incident took place on Saturday. He said it showed how the military was protecting the country in the wake of a coup attempt in Khartoum last week.
Colonel Getnet Adane, Ethiopia’s military spokesperson, did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Tensions along the border between Sudan and Ethiopia have escalated since the outbreak of a conflict in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region last year that sent tens of thousands of refugees into eastern Sudan.
The tensions have focused on an area of fertile farmland known as al-Fashqa, where the border is disputed.
