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

In its May 17th edition, #Eritrea's newspaper, Haddas Eritrea, had an editorial titled, "The #TPLF's new war adventurism: Why & for what objectives".
The editorial asserts that the main target of this latest TPLF war preparations is Eritrea & its people.

«Because they never learn from their previous disastrous experiences, are never bothered by massive deaths of the people of #Tigray about whom they pretend to care, & the only thing they care about is their hunger for power, #TPLF are now beating the war drums for the 3rd time.»
«In #Ethiopia, #TPLF's lust for power has as its aim to control again Welkait, Tegede & Humera, where they've committed genocide in their 27 years of misrule, & to open the corridor to the #Sudan, thereby plunging the country into chaos & disintegration.»

🧵On forced recruitment in #Ethiopia's #Tigray - For the past 4 months @Reuters spoke w. residents of Tigray, captured fighters and aid workers who detailed how authorities are forcing young people to join their army by threatening and jailing relatives. reuters.com/world/africa/s…

Ich weiß nicht, ob das überhaupt bei euch angekommen ist. In #Tigray in Äthiopien findet gerade eine gigantische humanitäre Katastrophe statt. Kaum Presse berichtet darüber. Der äthiopischen Regierung ist diese Stille recht. Twitter kann das ändern! /3
7 Millionen Menschen haben derzeit menschengemacht kaum Zugang zu Ernährung, medizinischer Versorgung, grundlegenden Dienstleistungen und Zugang zu Strom, Wasser, Telefon oder Internet usw.

Zur Info und zum Rassismus in der Berichterstattung: thenation.com/article/world/… /3
Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit sind an der Tagesordnung, Hunger und Vergewaltigung werden systematisch als Waffe genutzt. Es ist eine Katastrophe!

Hier kann man (anonym) spenden. Aber vor allem: teilt das und erzählt euren Freund*innen, was passiert!

Dozens of soldiers encircled a severely injured young man (maybe a teenager ) , they keep on beating him ,taunting him telling him to smile while destroying his face , some are comfortably recording on their phone
lots of slur
“don’t kill him yet ,we want them to suffer first “
“no they don’t die that easy , almost all of the once we left for dead got up “.
There was a local girl (about 10 or 12 yr. old ) in the crowd ,the soldiers were encouraging her to stone the boy and she does .

Parliamentarians in India are often accused of disrupting the House & not respecting parliamentary norms. They get copies of their dissent (outside the bounds of procedure) and show it to their voters back home, saying: ' I fought for you, but the Government did not let me win'.
As soon as the cameras are turned off, members of antagonistic parties relax together for a tea break and there is a general peace amongst them as they do incredible amounts of work behind the scenes in committees. People who focus on the screen do not know the actual work done.
What is signaled and what is done are two different things.

#BloodyWinter: winter is coming to Ethiopia and it is going to be bloody

1/ In 2-3 months the rainy season will be upon Ethiopia. I am hoping against hope that I am wrong, but I am afraid it is going to be the bloodiest winter in our history!
2/ It appears, both #TPLF & its backers have given up their hope of bringing #TPLF back to power & have settled for an independent #Tigray to serve as their #HOA proxy to disrupt the region. The catch: An independent #Tigray can not be realized without #Welkait.
3/ #TPLF is using this respite to appease the populace severely affected by food shortage and the terrible cost of the loss from the previous campaign in terms of human life and replenish its dwindling supply to feed its army.

Parents are required to pay some 50K if they don't let their children to go to war and will not get food aid.

Currently, #TPLF is preparing for a full scale war assuming the following scenarios:

👉 Some groups from #Afar will side with them,
3/4
👉 The desperate young will join in mass for their families to get food aid,
👉 Some groups from #Amhara will join them assuming their grievances,
👉 #OLA attack in #Oromia Region will weaken the central Gov't,
👉 #US's sanction bills crippled the Gov't,

“The global increase in #COVID19 cases continues, driven by large outbreaks in Asia and a fresh wave in Europe”, says @DrTedros at @WHO presser.
"We all want to move on from the pandemic. But no matter how much we wish it away, this pandemic is not over."
“Even as some high-income countries propose a second booster dose, one third of the world’s population remains unvaccinated”, says @DrTedros.
“But there are some promising signs of progress.”
@DrTedros “In Nigeria, for example, vaccine uptake was dramatically increased when supply stabilized, and planning was done on how to effectively distribute vaccines”, says @DrTedros.
Goal remains to vaccinate 70% of population in every country by middle of this year.

🧵Videos by popular artists, government officials, priests and Amhara elites advocating for the annihilation of Tigrayas.
1. #Debebe_Eshetu (Artist): Let us annihilate the day time hyenas and sanctify ourselves. We will be blessed if we exterminate the Tigrayans.

2. #Andargachew_Tsige: Ethiopian-Born UK citizen telling government forces: "I am telling you the truth; we must be really brutal to the Tigrayans; we must annihilate them entirely with cruelty."

Putting the #Tigrayans into concentration camps are acceptable act of responsible govt. For example, the US incarcerated Iraqis and Japanese throughout the US-Iraq war and the Second World War respectively.

Currently the only way to get life-saving humanitarian supplies to #Tigray is by air. The Govt is not facilitating movement of humanitarian trucks by road. With @USAID support, @WFP_UNHAS added a 2nd plane to its operations in Tigray to transport more aid to those in need. (1/3)
The add’l plane increases cargo capacity from about 40 metric tons of aid per week to nearly 200! @WFP_UNHAS has now transported 210 MT of aid to #Mekele. Proud to support this improvement, but it’s not enough… (2/3)
200 metric tons is only about 5 truckloads of supplies & the humanitarian response in #Tigray needs 500+ trucks of supplies weekly. The Govt must facilitate unhindered access for aid trucks–it’s the only way to meet the scale of needs.

As Jan. 2022 draws to a close, we focus on the #Irob minority of #Tigray. Jan. 7 was the 1️⃣ year anniversary of the #IrobMassacre by 🇪🇷 forces in which at least 72 people were killed as they celebrated Christmas.

More on the massacre while under 🇪🇷 occupation since Nov. 2020👇🏾
Without electricity, telecommunication services, the internet & access to most of the district, Irob remains largely cut off from the rest of the world. But we know the #Irob continue to face an existential threat under #Eritrea|n occupation. 
#IrobMassacre #AllowAccessToTigray
We honor all the victims of the #IrobMassacre, known and yet to be accounted for. We also honor and remember those who were kidnapped during #Eritrea’s last occupation of #Irob (1998-2000) who are never forgotten.

To War, or Not to Be: Why #TPLF will ALWAYS choose war

1/TPLF backed by formidable western allies failed to deliver Addis and apparently lost their unqualified support. With thousands sacrificed with nothing show in return, TPLF is stuck between a rock & a hard place.
2/ TPLF knows it can only survive if there is active conflict. Without war keeping the populace in a state of near constant fear and paranoia will be nigh impossible. This makes the prospect of ordinary Tigrayans showing their discontent, a very real possibility.
3/ With that in mind TPLF will do all it can to keep the war going. After another round of conscription TPLF has been getting ready to launch an all out attack against #Afar and #Amhara.
