There are rumours and several of reports of horrific news from the frontline of the conflict. As the Tigray Defence Force is continuing to gain territory in Amhara region. Today’s rumours and unverified reports are really tragic, if true.
As the TDF is advancing closer to Woldiya/Weldyia. There has been internal conflict within the government forces, which is really worrying.
The first report, which has been reported by several of sources is that the Commander of the 32nd Brigade who happens to be Oromo was assassinated either by the Amhara Regional Special Forces or “Fano”. While other of the same ethnicity who has conscripted to the warfare has also been executed by the same Amhara regiment. That was done because the Amhara controlled forces believed the Oromo was directly conspiring and acted in treachery with the TDF.
That is what the rumours are right now. That the Amhara is killing own allies of another ethnicity to prove a point. They are not only targeting Tigrayan and the TDF. They are also going after the Oromo who happens to participate on the same side on the front.
The second rumour, which is connected to the above mentioned massacre of own soldiers on the frontline. Is that the Amhara regiment behind the slaughter did this to confiscate the armaments from the Oromo allies.
This is really tragic and possibly new atrocities… shows what the Amhara Regional Special Forces and “Fano” can do. The other ENDF troops and others participating in the warfare should question, if they even should join the Amhara in it. When they are willing to kill and easily get rid others this quickly. People who has forced to conscript and become part of the ENDF war-effort.
I hope to God that these rumours aren’t true, but if they are… then the Amhara shows their vicious acts and spares no-one in this conflict. Nobody has value or means anything. Except for their own kind, which says a lot… when the same government in Addis Ababa always speaks of “unity” and “togetherness” but their main ally can easily “annihilate” others. Peace.
