Ethiopia: Fighting escalates as federal ties fray

As Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed calls for a national war, Tigrayan forces mobilise on three fronts

(Africa-confidential)—As fighting was spreading eastwards to Afar Region, on 18 July Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared a total war on the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, bringing in soldiers from most of the country’s 10 regions to boost the federal forces’ ailing campaign. ‘The enemy we are facing is Ethiopia’s cancer,’ said Abiy, comparing the TPLF to an Emboch, the fast-proliferating water hyacinth that has clogged up the country’s rivers and lakes.


Breaking News The Oromia Liberation Front Army OLF has completely taken over seven districts and released hundreds of prisoners.

This is the censorship that supported Tigray.
The people of Canfarta who fully supported Tigre and told that they are the people of Tigray.
Canfari broke up with two sides, the strongest part has clearly shown support to Tigre and the other part of Addis Ababa.
On the other hand, what is the burden of the different ethnic groups between Binshanguul and Tigre of the coalition of different ethnic groups?

  1. Afmeer Tv Clip,
    For those who do not speak the Oromo language, I wanted to give you a glimpse into what was transpiring in the video…This is a recording of an actual battle taking place between an Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) unit and some Security Forces, most likely guarding one of the many Prison Camps, where Abiy Ahmed keeps Oromo Political Prisoners locked up.

    …Between the coded communication getting shouted out between the OLA Unit’s Combatant members, a Fighter finds time to comfort an Oromo family : “…we are your sons! There is nothing you should be afraid of…close your door and stay down for your safety, he says…” In the second instance, once the OLA Unit successfully breaches the Security cordon of the Prison, you hear another Combatant asking some of the Prisoners, one by one, the following question: “Were you imprisoned for Political reasons?” “Yes”, the Prisoners responded, one by one!…”OLA has FREED you from now on! Go on, get out of this place! Stay calm, and do not be afraid of the cacophony of battle! We are your Sons, we are here to free you, we will protect you!”, says the OLA Fighter!

    YES,THE OROMO PEOPLE HAVE FINALLY FOUND THEIR TRUE PROTECTOR!

    THE OROMO LIBERATION ARMY (OLA) IS THAT POWER! LET”S STAND WITH OUR OLA!

    LET”S BRING FORTH A SOVEREIGN OROMO REPUBLIC, CONCEIVED IN LIBERTY, AND BUILT ON THE FOUNDATION OF THE SACRIFICES OF OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS!
    NOTHING LESS SHOULD BE ACCEPTABLE!
