Al Negashi Mosque attack : who is behind it?

January 4, 2021

Al Negashi Mosque which is located about 60 kilometers east of Mekelle, center of Tigray regional state. It is one of the oldest Mosque in the world with over 1300 years of age.

It was damaged during the law enforcement operation against Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) between November and December 2020. It is, however, unclear if it was deliberately attacked and as to who is behind the attack.

Muslim scholar Professor Ustaz Adam Kamil thinks that the attack on the mosque was intended to make political gains.
