The mendacious propaganda of #Somali troops being involved in the #Ethiopian civil war, particularly in the #Tigray region, is undoubtedly deceptive and I will dispel it once and for all. (🧵) 1/25
The @nytimes freelance reporter @MarksSimon deceitfully uses this screenshot in an attempt to give credence to the notion that #Somali troops were brought into #Tigray and were present around the city of #Aksum. 2/25
Marks uses the UN Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in
Eritrea, written by Mohamed Abdelsalam Babiker, as his source. 3/25

Mercenaries in #Yemen are a significant factor in what prolonged the war.
It’s the twenty-first century. Corporates have armies.
With as little as a few ID papers and almost no governmental regulation, you can take up state-of-the-art arms and

Veronica Roth, because we’re already living in a dystopian novel.
the United States revived the mercenary industry with Bush’s War on Terror, and continued the venture into the #UAE and Saudi-led war on #Yemen,and now in #Ukraine.
But why mercenaries? One reason is numbers.

#Evacuate #Migrants & #Refugees from #Libya! THREAD
@Refugees should actively & expeditiously work to evacuate sub-Saharan #African migrants from Libya. Libyan gov't's non-mea culpa is inadequate. It hoarded 1000s over several days before they stormed out in desperation.
What happened this past week was no accident; it was intentional, done in full public view, & abetted by external funding & political/moral cover. #EU-funded Libyan security always racialized & hounded such migrants & refugees since Gaddafi days - to reinforce fortress Europe.
Mr. @FilippoGrandi, with all the due respect, expressions of concern are woefully inadeqauate under the circumstance. Your good offices has to mobilize regional & international humanitarian support. Sub-Saharan African countries should be asked to give shelter - temporary or not.

Why Do We Need A Government In Exile? Rationale:

Because (a) the Government-in-Power has lost the legitimacy to govern on legal, political and socio-economic grounds and (b) the conventional opposition approach does not rise to the state of emergency #Eritrea is facing.

Thread.
(2) In 1992, #Eritrean Peoples’ Liberation Front (EPLF) issued a Proclamation 23/1992 that
defined the Structure, Power, and Function of the Provisional Government of Eritrea (PGE).
(3) The Proclamation unequivocally stated that TGE shall govern “until the #Eritrean people
decides its rights to self-determination through a plebiscite and until a constitutional
government is established." The mandate lasted until the successful conduct of the 1993 referendum.

The lady was interrogated, photos & videos in her phone investigated thoroughly, & brought to her home by the troops yesterday night at 8 pm Tigrayan Time. They warned her that she MUST stay at home for 10 days. If she violates this restriction, reprisals will follow.

They told her, "We will follow your situation. If we come to know that you disrespect our word and you fail to stay at your home for 10 days, the consequences will be severe." They have taken the contact numbers of everyone of her household.

I hv a fairly interesting story of a taxi ride I had a couple nights back. I rode it from Washington National Airport to my home because I didn’t want to wait for Lyft. Upon entering the vehicle I’m usually the first to greet & engage w/ the driver.
This time I was met by an individual who was equally acknowledging and willing to converse. We exchanged small talk for a few abt how business was now tht an ease on lockdown started & ppl were flying more.
He explained how he knew of several cab drivers who contracted COVID & were no longer alive. Pleasantries continued to be exchanged between us; expressing ideas of gratefulness for life, not taking things for granted, etc...

We must remind the wrld how #TPLF forced a discontent #Ethiopian army during the ‘98 border war to invade, occupy, rape, pillage & kill #Eritreans w/ our sovereign borders. The same actions used against Eritreans by Tigrayan’s then, are the same tactics applied upon their ppl.
How can the wrld gloss over the fact tht these savages who raped their ppl in #Tigray for decades, disgustingly committed the same violent crimes against humanity upon elderly, young #Eritrean women. Meanwhile, int’l wrld sat idle & hushed while USAID operated illegally in Badme.
The deceit, & repugnant character of these ppl hv painstakingly been obvious for generations to #Eritreans, #Ethiopians & #Somali ppl, instead adored, protected & supported by the same self-interested, bloodsucking imperialists nations who’ve deliberately shielded #TPLF.

One Question Not Asked In 4 Months:

How many young #Ethiopia|ns & #Eritrea|ns enlisted or conscripted in the ENDF, ASF, TDF, EDF have been killed in the stupid war? Until we ask, and insist on an answer, the war will not stop. #HowManyDied?
If are comforted by the lullabies of your side (whichever side you are on),remember the 98-00 #Eritrea-#Ethiopia “border war” was 24 months of standstill interrupted by 1 month (cumulative) of battle. 100,00 young lives perished then! The current war is 4 months of non-stop war.
The horrific violations against civilians, including children 👇🏾will be accounted for because there are reporters and advocacy groups that will insist on it. But how will those addicted to claiming they won disclose what the cost of the “winning” was and who will make them?

It’s #FatuousFriday: just back from Planet NNNN, with its alternative facts, and I am here to share with my compats. Since everything Isaias touches turns to ashes, the promising political career of @AbiyAhmedAli is facing the abyss too. But, hey: war is peace and peace is war Image
More “War Is Peace, Peace Is War”: According to the “Abiy Is Our Leader #Eritrea Is Our Country”mob from #Ethiopia, joined by Isaiaists, when 🇺🇸 and EU call for end to war, it is warmongering! Image
Walking is the new #Eritrea|n accomplishment, according to the #PFDJ. Plus it’s good for the environment in a country with the most expensive fuel in the world. Pass it on. Image

🇪🇷🇪🇹#Ethiopia said #Eritrea has agreed to withdraw forces from the #Tigray region, almost five months after fighting broke out.

"Witnesses say soldiers and militia target civilians and use rape as a weapon." @MariaG_N reports from #Tigray⤵️

#TigrayCrisis
@MariaG_N 🇪🇹Across #Tigray, more than half a million people were forced to flee their homes. Thousands were able to find refuge in the regional capital Mek’ele.

🎤"We don’t have enough water, food, or clothes, we’re not receiving any help from the government," says a man displaced⤵️
@MariaG_N 🇪🇹🇪🇷Many survivors speak of massacres and accuse #Eritrean soldiers.

During a religious celebration in a #Tigray village, more than 150 people were killed by members of the Eritrean army, residents say.

🎤"All of those killed were like my own family.”⤵️

Happy Friday: #Ethiopia|ns & “fellow #Eritreans across the border”! After 4 months of lies & denials, and less than a week after @ChrisCoons delivered the @POTUS msg that #Ethiopia is committing “systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing” in #Tigray, @PMEthiopia folds like a card: Image
The move came less than a week after @AbiyAhmedAli chose the parliament as his venue to admit what the whole world, except a few in #Eritrea|s NNNN Party #PFDJ and #Ethiopia|s Abiy Cult, knew: #Eritrean|s have been fighting inside #Tigray with knowledge & approval of @PMEthiopia Image
Now, there is only one country in the world whose media has not shared the news that #Eritrean|s are fighting in #Ethiopia and its leader has agreed to withdraw its troops. The country? Hint: its state media slogan is “serving the truth.” Image

Short @AbiyAhmedAli: We defeated #TPLF (june tah) completely & #Eritrea is in #Ethiopia only because we are at war with TPLF whom we have defeated completely 4 month ago. Mayyybe our soldiers & Isaias did a little raping here and there but TPLF ATTACKED NORTHERN COMMAND!
(2) #Eritrea|ns have made a very strong argument as to why they cannot withdraw from sovereign #Ethiopia|n territories, because they fear being attacked by #TPLF (who I have totally annihilated) and I must say I find their arguments compelling. The war is to catch 12 people.
(3) The call for us to withdraw #Amhara Special Forces from #Tigray is like me telling the US: Colorado National Guard cannot be dispatched to California in a state of emergency. Everybody knows Colorado ethnics & California ethnics are analogous to Tigray-Amhara ethnies.

The International community (IC) has the ground to invoke its residual responsibility to protect (R2P) #Tigrayans. According to the R2P commitment, state sovereignty is a responsibility for people's welfare. 1
R2P is states' and IC's responsibility to protect populations from the worst forms of violence: genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity. 2
un.org/en/genocidepre…
Welfare and protection from these crimes is primarily the state's responsibility. But the IC has a residual responsibility, especially when "national authorities manifestly fail to protect their populations". 3

The genocidal and traitorous man, @AbiyAhmedAli, has told the world it is his right to commit war crimes and violate IHL using Amhara, Eritrean and Ethiopian armies in Tigray. He rebuffed calls for Eritrean and Amhara armies to leave Tigray. 1/2
He blamed Tigrayans for anything and engaged in the usual lies and deception. He mocked the pain of "their women"[Tigrayan women] that are being raped by #Eritrean, #Ethiopian and marauding #Amhara militias by arguing it is nothing compared to the damage on his army. 2/2
He accused @CNN, @amnesty, @hrw and many others that reported on the Tigray crimes of being paid by TPLF.

#Ethiopia: Lies, Damn Lies, Jeff Pearce (@ jeffpropulsion) & ENA.

So Jeff Pearce spoke for a "few minutes by phone" with Seife Deribe of ENA, and writes that Axum Massacre is FAKE, and many "Ethiopians" are sharing this article as evidence.

Not only is this mind numbing out right lie based on ENA's CEO, but Jeff's whole article is based on "few minutes" of phone conversation with Seife Deribe of ENA. FEW MINUTES! That is the whole Jeff's research! "Few Minutes"

Thread 1) Are we witnessing a #genocidal campaign by #Eritrea’n forces in the #war in #Tigray #Ethiopia? The atrocities committed and the apparent intent may seem to point in that direction. In this thread I will outline the argument supporting such possible claim. #genocide
2) First, it is important to distinguish between #Eritrean & #Ethiopian forces, although #ENDF is also allegedly responsible for mass atrocities. But in #genocide the intent of the atrocities is also important to consider, which appears more ambiguous in relation to ENDF.
3) It has been documented widespread & systematic #massacers of civilians by #EDF throughout Tigray, targeted as #Tegaru. Many witnesses also claim that Eritrean troops have admitted to orders to kill #Tigrayan men & boys, so they shall not later revenge the atrocities.

I was only 23 when I met Dr. Mulugeta Gebrehiwot (nom de guerre Mulugeta Chaltu) in #Mekelle. I was young, ambitious, full of energy, first year after graduating from #AddisAbabaUniversity. I was talking to him on how I could help with the selection of wastewater treatment 1/5

A relative traveled from #Adwa to #Mekelle today. He told my family that many people are dying from starvation.

As banks don't work, people cannot withdraw their money and save their lives and those with some grain need to line up for up to two weeks to have it milled. 1/4
There're few mills running on diesel.

Some families are desperately trying to send food from #Mekelle and other parts with access to cash. However:
1. They're impoverished and without income themselves.
2. It costs 500 birr to transport a quintal, Ex, from #Mekelle to #Adwa
3. It is risky. Friends in #Mekelle know of confiscated money and food destined to needy families, particularly in areas manned by savage #Eritrean soldiers.

The situation is catastrophic.

#AbiyAhmed is killing my people in masses by denying humanitarian relief.
