DescriptionNairobi, Kenya (CNN)Ethiopian Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize winner Abiy Ahmed has announced he will lead his country's soldiers on the front lines of the war against advancing rebel fighters, in the latest escalation of the year-long conflict between his government and rebel groups from the northern Tigray region.

"Starting tomorrow, I will head to the war front to lead the defense forces in person," he wrote in a statement on Twitter late Monday, urging citizens to "lead the country with a sacrifice" and join him. "Those of you who aim to be one of Ethiopia's children who will be celebrated in history, rise up today for your country, let's meet at the war front."

"In the past and in the present, the needs and lives of each and every one of us is below [the needs of] Ethiopia," Abiy added. "We would rather die to save Ethiopia than outlive Ethiopia."

Abiy referred to the push as the "final fight to save Ethiopia" from "internal and external enemies" who he claims are "ready to build their strength on the weakness of Ethiopia."
