(CNN)An official from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) has told CNN the war in Ethiopia is far from over and that Eritrean troops are part of the conflict.

Speaking exclusively to CNN for the first time since the fall of Mekelle, the capital of the northern Tigray region, Getachew Reda said the bulk of the region still remains in the hands of the TPLF.

"We withdrew from Mekelle because we did not want to give them the pretext to bombard the city back to the stone age, to indiscriminately bombard and destroy the town," Reda, Ethiopia's former Communications Minister and a member of the TPLF executive council, told CNN by phone from inside the Tigray region.

Reda contradicted Abiy's assertion that the war was over and said the TPLF have launched multiple strikes against neighboring Eritrea because he claimed "90% of the forces operating in Tigray are from Eritrea. "
