Photo of Rocket Attack on Eritrea Is Actually from China in 2015

On November 15, the head of Ethiopia’s Tigray area, Debretsion Gebremichael, guaranteed his powers terminated rockets at Asmara, the capital of neighboring Eritrea. 

He portrayed the assault as counter for Eritrea’s mediation in the unfurling strife among Tigray and Ethiopia’s focal government, settled in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. 

There were no reports of losses from the rocket assault on Asmara. 

Various sources have affirmed a rocket assault occurred, however because of Eritrea’s amazingly close control on media, not many particulars have spilled out. 

On November 14, a YouTube channel called “My Views on News,” which has more than 10,000 endorsers and 3.2 million perspectives, posted a video about the assault. 

That video, which as of now has more than 62,000 perspectives, makes explicit cases about where the rockets landed and includes a still picture, purportedly of the consequence of the assault, demonstrating huge flames. 

The case that the photo shows the result of the Asmara assault is bogus. 

On November 17, the U.S. State Department denounced the revealed rocket assault on Asmara, just as rocket assaults on two air terminals inside Ethiopia on November 13.The explanation says the Asmara assault occurred on November 14, while different sources report it happened on November 15. 

The BBC found that the photograph from Tianjin was misattributed on other online media accounts as a photograph of the Asmara rocket assault consequence, so it isn’t evident that the “My Views on News” YouTube channel was the cause for the deceptive attribution. 

The Ethiopian government dispatched a military activity in the Tigray district after a supposed assault by Tigray People’s Liberation Front powers on an administration arms stockpile on November 4. The TPLF denied doing the assault.
