The Doubt and Sacrifice of the Northern Ethiopian War

One night last week, a large number of volunteers gathered in the capital, Addis Ababa, to protect their area.

They stop and inspect cars. See also relevant documents.

“The committee we set up in our neighborhood has 180 members. We have a lot of people. We found a lot of suspicious items, including guns and explosives,” said the veteran who coordinated the search.

The volunteers are looking for Tigrayan rebels and their supporters in accordance with the state of emergency.

Critics say thousands have been unjustly detained; In the capital, however, the arrests appear to have widespread support.

One night, one of the guards was talking on the phone, saying, “He’s trying to escape. Hurry up.”

Nearby, a large group of elderly volunteers gathered for training. They practice following their instructions.

The whole atmosphere in the capital seemed peaceful.

However, many countries, including the United Kingdom, have warned that security in Ethiopia is “deteriorating.”

The warning came after Tigray forces announced their intention to march on Addis Ababa.

“The state of emergency has not affected the daily life of the Ethiopian capital,” the Russian embassy said in a statement.

A video has surfaced of Afar Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva announcing that he will lead the army on the battlefield.

The prime minister is seen wearing a military uniform and being surrounded by soldiers.

“We now have control of the area. The morale of the army is very positive. We will not back down until Ethiopia’s independence is guaranteed,” he said.

He said the TPLF was taking control of many towns captured by the TPLF.

It is difficult to confirm the fact that telephone lines do not work in these war-torn areas.

In addition, the new Emergency Proclamation prohibits the disclosure of military activity and battlefield results by anyone other than the authorized body.

TPLF leaders show hostage-taking of thousands of members of the Ethiopian Defense Forces in a recent video. He also said that they are moving forward on different fronts.

Debre Berhan is currently the main focus. Outside of Addis Ababa, the city is believed to be a major source of security.

Some analysts: They warn that Tigray forces are at risk of retaliation, that Eritrea may launch an attack and that the army may face undue pressure.

People are in a terrible situation

Whichever side is winning, the escalation of the conflict has exacerbated the humanitarian crisis.

The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) says 9.4 million people in northern Ethiopia are in need of assistance.

“As the conflict spreads in northern Ethiopia, many people are facing serious problems,” said Claire Neville, head of the organization in Addis Ababa.

He said attacks by rebels in Tigray, bureaucracy of the federal government and instability were hampering humanitarian aid.

The World Food Program (WFP) has recently reached out to two towns in the Amhara region controlled by the Tigray Forces.

War with ‘ infidels 

The leader of the Prosperity Party continues to hold public events in Addis Ababa to thank the volunteers.

“We are at war with domestic terrorists and their foreign backers,” said Itissa Demme, a city council member.

“I am called to fight for the glory of my country. If a family dies, it will mourn in the country, but where will it end?

In the morning, the old woman delivered a message to the crowd.

“I love my country. I wanted to march. But my wife and son told me not to march. We will march.”

“I trained on a voluntary basis. When my son and my wife are fighting, I will protect the area. I will attack everyone I see on the road. We must not wait for the enemy to come and kill us,” she told the BBC.

“They are heroes. They are all hope for you,” said Ida Awel, one of the leaders of the Prosperity Party.

“We expect more young people to follow his example. The Ethiopian spirit is stronger now than ever. More than 7,000 people from Arada sub-city have decided to march to help their country,” Ida said.

The case of neo-colonialism

The Ethiopian government has accused Western governments and the media of deliberately disseminating information that distorts the reality of the conflict.

Many Ethiopians seem to agree. They comment on social media saying that a “colonial” attempt has been made to discredit the country and exaggerate the TPLF’s victory.

“We have been attacked on two fronts. One is the neo-colonial propaganda spread by the Western media, including the BBC. The other is the TPLF’s genocidal war,” said political analyst Achamyeleh.

Achamyeleh says he criticizes the Ethiopian government; However, he stated that he would not hesitate to defend his sovereignty.

The Ethiopian government has denied repeated requests from the BBC for an interview.

However, the Ethiopian government has been widely criticized for putting pressure on the local and foreign media. He is also accused of making dangerous statements about the media and restricting access to information.

Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has praised the release of political prisoners and journalists before the war. Again, you are criticizing the media for creating an environment that suppresses and threatens.

The BBC says it will continue to provide impartial, accurate and impartial coverage of Ethiopia and the rest of the world.
