Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (DIPLOMAT.SO) – According to security sources, Eritrea has declared a state of high alert due of the conditions of internal security concerns and border areas with Ethiopia.

Eritrea increased defence capabilities and deployed more troops along the Ethiopian border, and issued new instructions which ordered all soldiers to compel their presence in the barracks and defense camps.

Eritrea fears of a military coup in Asmara and a surprise attack from Ethiopia at any time to shift the world’s attention from the assaults and acts of repression against the protesters from the Oromia and Amhara.

The Non-armed Eritrean opposition have set informal rules for organising unauthorized activities in Asmara, Addis Ababa, Kampala, Nairobi and Berlin.

It’s not clear whether the opposition has secret members in the intelligence service and Eritrean Defence Forces for possible toppled the government of President Isaias Afwerki.

Ethiopia has accused Egypt and Eritrea of arming, training and funding groups which it blames for a wave of protests and violence, forcing authorities to declare a state of emergency. Government spokesman told a news conference the six-month nationwide state of emergency had been declared to better coordinate security forces against “elements” intent on targeting civilians, infrastructure and private investments.
