Ethiopia/Sudan: Troops exchange fire after Sudanese soldiers kill Ethiopian farmers

ESAT news (July 3, 2018) Ethiopian and Sudanese troops have engaged in a brief battle after soldiers for the latter killed and injured several Ethiopian farmers.

As information trickles from the area, ESAT has learnt that the latest wave of attack by the Sudanese began three weeks ago when its army killed several Ethiopian farmers on a disputed farmland on the border between the two countries.

A witness who spoke to ESAT on the phone from Metema said the Sudanese side killed five farm workers four days ago in an unprovoked attack. The witness said Ethiopian forces have been deployed following that incident and had engaged the Sudanese in a brief battle. He said there were deaths on both sides. Seven Ethiopians including members of the army have been sent to Genda Wuha Hospital in Metemma after today’s brief exchange of fire, according to the witness.

An attack last night in Dalol agricultural development has left several injured, according to the witness who said Ethiopian soldiers were among them.

Several Ethiopian farmers were feared killed by the Sudanese in Quara.

The Ethiopian Border Affairs Committee in North America and other witnesses on the ground accused that soldiers for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front had a hand in the conflict. The TPLF has been accused of instigating previous attacks on Ethiopian farmers along the border.

The TPLF, that had the political and military upper hand in Addis Ababa until recently, had given large swaths of agricultural land to their comrades in arms in Sudan against the will of the Ethiopian farmers in the border areas. There have been several attacks by the Sudanese in past years, but the Ethiopian farmers have repulsed most.

In a related story, Amhara Mass Media Agency( AMMA), the regional state media, confirmed that the skirmish involving Sudanese Border Security and Ethiopian farmers happened this morning in Metema district of the zone along Delelo Agricultural investment land, according to Borkena. The source added that there were casualties on both sides but did not indicate the numbers.

Neither Sudanese government authorities nor the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia has reacted to this latest conflict about four/five days later.

However, Borkena reports, there has been an outcry by Ethiopian farmers in the region for a long time now after the TPLF government allegedly handed over land that belongs to Ethiopia to Sudan. About three or so years ago, TPLF government, which used to be dominant in the Federal government while representing only five percent of the Ethiopian population, signed a joint-border security agreement with Sudan and arrangement was made to for a joint-force from the two countries to patrol border areas.

TPLF’s arrogance of power pays it with further ethnic crisis in Gondar, confirms Jane’s IHS – renowned Country Risk Daily Reporter

At least 5,000 demonstrators (primarily ethnic Amhara) protested on 14 July in the city of Gondar, Amhara Region, with 20 people (including police officers) killed in resulting confrontations with security forces involving batons, tear gas, and exchanges of heavy gunfire that continued until 17 July.

Arson attacks targeted government and Tigray-affiliated properties, including retail shops, public buses operated by the government-owned EFFORT conglomerate, and two hotels. In response, foreign tourists based in Gondar were evacuated to the capital Addis Ababa between 16 and 17 July by the Ethiopian government.

Ethiopian media sources reported the protests began after Tigrayan regional police disguised as Federal Police arrested the chairman (Colonel Demeke Zewdu) and other members of the “Welkait Ahmara Identity Committee” on 12 July, alleging possession of a weapons cache and plans to attack government forces with support from neighbouring Eritrea.

ሕወሃት የኦሮሚያን ሕዝባዊ ተቃውሞ አከሸፍኩ ብሎ መፎከሩን ሳያቆም፣ለምን እንደገና አገረሸ?

ለሣምንት ጋብ ብሎ የነበረው ሕዝባዊ ተቃውሞ ካለፈው አርብ ታህሳስ 25 ቀን 2015 ጀምሮ በምዕራብ ወለጋ፣ በም ዕራብና ሰሜን ሸዋ በተለያሉ ከተሞች ዩኒቨርሲቲዎችና ሁለተኛ ድረጃ ትምህርት ቤቶች ተቀጣጥሎ መቀጠሉን ኢሣት የሃገር ቤት ምንጮቹን ዋቢ በማድረግ ምክንያቱን ዘግቧል።
 

እስካ ሣምንት በፊት በነበረው የአምስት ሣምንት የሕዝብ ተቃውሞ 122 ሰዎች በሕወሃት ወታደሮችና ፖሊሶች ተገድለዋል፣ እንዲሁም ከአራት ሺህ በላይ ዜጎች በእሥር ላይ መሆናቸውም ተገልጿል። እሥሩም፣ ግለሰቦች የደረሱበት ቦታ አለመታወቁ ቀጥሏል።

ባለፈው ዓመትና አሁንም ከፍተኛ የሰብዓዊ መብት ጥሰት በተፈጸመበት የአምቦ ዩኒቨርሲቲ፣ ኢሣት እንደዘገበው፣ የዩኒቨርሲቲው ካምፐስ ወታደራዊ ካምፕ በሚመስል መልኩ በሠራዊት መጥለቅለቁን ለማወቅ ተችሏል።

ምንግግስት ተማሪዎች ትምህርት ከመጀመራቸው በፊት ስብሰባ እንዲሳተፉ ያደረገው ጥሪና ግፊት ተማሪዎቹን እንዳስቆጣችው ይነገራል።

በአምቦ ዩኒቨርሲቲ በፖሊስ ዱላ የተጎዱ ተማሪዎች ወደ ሆስፒታል ተወስደው ዕርዳታ ከተደረገላቸው በኋላ ወደ እሥር ቤቶች ተግዘዋል።

አብዛኛው ተማሪ ግን ካምፐሱን ለቆ ወጥቷል።

የአምቦ ተማሪዊች ለኢሣት እንደገለጹት፣ አሁን ባለው ሁኔታ ‘መንግሥትና’ ሕዝብ ሆድና ጀርባ ሆነዋል ይላሉ። በወለጋ በሆሮ ጉድሩ፣ በሰሜን ሸዋ ኢጅሬና ሂጃቡ አቦ ተማሪዎች ክፖኪስና ወታደራዊ ኮምንዶች ጋር መጋጨታቸው ተገልጿል።

ሰሞኑን ከ15 በላይ የሚሆኑ ታዋቂ የኦሮሞ መሪዎች እየተለቀሙ መታሠራቸው ቀደም ብሎ የተዘገብ ሲሆን፡ የአስተዳደሩ ጥቃት ኦሮሞና ኦሮሞ ያልሆኑ ጋዜጠኞችም ላይ ጥላውን አጥልቷል።

በፖለቲካ ፓርቲዎች ደረጃም የኦሮሞ ፌዴራሊስት ኮንግሬስ (ኦፌኮ) የመጀመሪያው ግንባር ቀደም ተጠቂ ሲሆን፣ ሌሎችም – ለምሣሌ እንደ ሰማያዊ ፖርቲ/አንድነት ዐይነቶችም – አንዳንድ አባሎቻቸውን በማሠር ዱላው አርፎባቸዋል።

አሁን ካለው ሁኔታ የሚታየው፣ ሁሉን ረግጦና አስፈራርቶ የመግዛት የሕወሃት የጠብ ያለሽ በዳቦ ለመሆኑ ምንም አያጠራጥም። ውድቀት ሲቃረብ፣ የዚህ ዐይነቱ ቀቢሰ ተስፋ በታሪክ በተደጋጋሚ መመዝገቡ ይታወቃል!
 

ለምንድነው የሃገራችን ባለሥልጣኖች ባለጌ ሆነው ሕዝቡን ማዋረድ መብታቸው ወይንም የሥልጡንነታችው ምልክት የሚመስላቸው? ደኢህዴን ከላይ እስከታች በመረጃ ሲጋለጥ – መደመጥ ያለበት!

Hailemariam: The embarrassment Ethiopia is thrown into clearly shows – BBC brings out the evidence

12 Jul

Editor’s Note:

    Prime Minister Hailemariam is an unguided missile directed against Ethiopia. His ’employers’ (the TPLF) are not qualitatively any better. Most of the generals were fourth to seventh grade students. On seizing power in 1991, most of them concentrated on ordering degrees, although some have proved good students.
