Welcome, p / world news!
We are Goitom Gebreleul (Ethiopian Political Analyst) and Teklay Haileselassie (Editor and Columnist, panel host In Tghat Media Tweet embed on Twitter). Ask us about the war in Tigray, the far north of Ethiopia.
The war started on November 4, 2020 After the escalation of tensions between the Tigray People’s Liberation Front and the Ethiopian Federal Government led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali. As part of a law enforcement operation to apprehend the TPLF coterie, the Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF), the Eritrean Defense Forces (EDF), and the Amhara regional state militia Tigray, which has been placed under a telecommunications blackout, have entered.
Contrary to the stated aims of the Ethiopian Federal Government to target the Tigrayan Regional Command, Tigrayan civilians have been subjected to mass killings, internal displacement and rampant sexual assault at the hands of the Ethiopian National Defense Forces, the Ethiopian Defense Forces and the Amhara militia. Hundreds of thousands of Tigrayans are now facing starvation conditions (see WPF ‘Starving Tigray’ report), which was exacerbated by inaccessibility.
right Now, TDF (Tigrian Defense Force) regained control of a large part of Tigray,look here Video of thousands of Ethiopian prisoners Escorted through Mikkeli, Tigray.
The Ethiopian federal government has since called for a unilateral ceasefire (note the recent Tigrayan counteroffensive operation Alola Abba Nega, designed by The general. Tsadkan Gebretensae). TPLF released The terms of a negotiated cease-fire. However, the war was not over yet.
