The Ethiopian-Eritrean border opened September 11, 2018, after the two governments reconciled. Part of the reconciliation agreement was both countries to withdraw their forces from the borders. Following the treaty, Ethiopia has been redeploying troops from the border. However, an unusual situation happened at a village near Zalambessa when the military troops were transporting heavy armories. The village residents blocked the road and demanded the army not to leave. According to the zone's security head Ato Girmay Hadush, the residents are worried about the situations around the border since it closed December 26, and the Eritrean government has tightened security at the border due to unknown reasons. The residents are doubtful about the peace and security of their village.
