 Horndiplomat-Ethiopia has restructured its defense force.

Accordingly, it has downsized the number of regional commands to four from six. The new regional commands are Eastern, Western, Southern, and Northern.

It has also set up a committee tasked to reestablish a naval force and a special operation command.

Based on these, the government has reshuffled military positions, according to Lieutenant General Mola Hailemariam, chief of special operation at the defense force.

About 66 of the soldiers who had marched on the Prime Minister office last October were punished by a military court.

Administrative measures were also taken against other soldiers.
