The Massawa war memorial. The memorial is a composition of
three Ethiopian tanks. The middle tank, known as Commander
Number 1, which was the first tank captured by the EPLA at the
battle of Adebzemat in 1977. The other two were halted at this
location in 1991. The tanks are surrounded by black and white
a fountain spirting from the tanks gun and flower beds.
