ONN: Developing News on OLF Army Operation/Two Trucks Destroyed

News coming from our sources in western Oromia indicates that the OLF Army unit yet again destroyed two Oral military trucks between Begi and Gidaamii districts at a place called Laaloo today March 18, 2018. The report added that all of the Ethiopian troops in the two trucks are killed and there are no survivors. The story is still developing and therefore we are still looking for details including the number of casualties. The report also adds that there is still heavy fighting in the area in which local residents may have joined the OLF army in the fight against the Ethiopian military troops.

It is to be recalled that we reported that the OLF destroyed two military trucks of the Ethiopian army killing at least 10 and wounding others in the same area on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. It is also to be recalled that we reported a series of attacks of the OLF army on Ethiopian military troops and Agaazi forces including the one occurred on March 12 and 13 in and around Moyale town in which 72 soldiers were killed and several others were injured. The OLF army commander in Borana told ONN that the attack in Moyale and its vicinity was in retaliation of the Massacre committed on Oromo civilians in Moyale town on March 10, 2018.

In another developing news the Somali Liyyu Police is preparing a major attack on Oromo people in Eastern and Southern Oromia. It is reported that the Liyyu Police plan to carry the attack wearing civilian clothes. If the war gets tough, the Tigrayan troops wearing civilian clothes are said to have promised to fight along side with Liyyu Police against civilian Oromo people in invading Oromo farmers residing along the border. Many believe the current plan to use Liyyu Police to invade Oromo territories is for the regime to divert the attention of the public from the Massacre it committed in Moyale and the casualties it is sustaining from the OLF army.
Stay tuned for details as the news develops.
