The assailant is said to have been arrested. Following the incidence wailing was heard from inside the compound where the general lived with his wife, according to people who were in the vicinity.
After spending some time at the Orota hospital our sources are now hearing that there is a plan to send him abroad for treatment to his serious injuries.
General Sebhat has been sidelined from Isaias Afewerki’s circle for quite some time our sources add.
