1/ The #Ethiopia/n government has informed the diplomatic community in the country on the “measures taken by the Government on human rights violations related to the conflict in the northern part of the country.”
#Tigray #warcrimes #CrimesAgainstHumanity #genocide
2/ One may argue however that it seems evident that PM #AbiyAhmed, #PP government, and #ENDF military leadership in #Ethiopia are ultimately politically and juridically responsible for the #warcrimes, #crimesagainsthumanity, and possibly #genocide for their war in and on #Tigray.
3/ ICRC in #internationalhumanitarianlaw commentary: “Commanders & other superiors are criminally responsible for war crimes committed by their subordinates if they knew, or had reason to know, that the subordinates were about to commit or were committing such crimes... (cont.)

#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.

If you think, Malinowski, a former Washington Director of @hrw, who never uttered a single word against #TPLF during his tenure, is sponsoring this bill out of an abundance of care for #Ethiopia, think again. #HR666!
IMO, these are the two pillars of #HR6600
1) Section 6 aims at strangling the Ethiopian economy be stopping loans & grants from the WB & IMF. This will affect millions of Ethiopians by affecting supply of seeds & fertilizers. Outcome: Inflation, food insecurity & instability.
2) Section 3, Point 3, aims at stopping the sale of weapons including drones to Ethiopia. Its effect on #TPLF is nonexistent. Here Malinowski & co are operating with the assumption that taking drones out of the equation will help #TPLF regain its military advantage over #ENDF.

Aware of rumors that Dessie, #Amhara Region, has been captured by #TDF. Pretty big claim, the latest reliable information I saw spoke of battles approaching the city & strict restrictions (including transports) but not a possible capture

Anything reliable info I will update here
@MapEthiopia quando você está ansioso por uma informação:
This guy tends to post reliable information, despite having a side (I don't see any problem with this btw). Note that he emphasizes *being reported*

. @AFP report on escalating effort to remove TPLF forces from occupied parts of Amhara initially.

Given that these invading forces have been committing multiple war crimes one might think it would not be unreasonable to expect IC spokespersons to call on TPLF to withdraw.
Dear: @PMEthiopia and #ENDF.

Now that the international media are showing signs of reducing their partiality in favour of the TPLF, it is unfortunate that news of this operation is being reported via the false statements of the enemy.
It is fortunate that many of the media now know not to believe statements from @reda_getachew.

But it would benefit the truth greatly if news of the progress and operations underway in this law and order operation originated from official sources.

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.

#PIA states that he had told Debretesion of #TPLF when they met in Umhajer January 7, 2019 that it was not in the best interest of #TPLF to prepare for war. Debretsion’s reply was “ኣይትኸውንን ኢያ"
Every war is the result of a miscalculation and #TPLF’s war on #ENDF and after that hope to march to Addis and Asmara was a big miscalculation

Let it be clear!

Every crime that #TPLF committed prior, during, & after its assault on the Northern Command of #ENDF was "pre-meditated, well planned in advance, & approved" at the highest level of the #TPLF leadership!

- That a self-aggrandizing non-citizen of #Ethiopia feels he can lecture #Ethiopia-ns about how they should run their country's affairs would have been laughable if it were not derisive!

- In months past, @SMGebru was lamenting election postponement in #Ethiopia.
- The fact that a non-citizen of #Ethiopia feels he can openly squelch the rights of #Ethiopia-ns to express their inalienable right of citizenship to vote and participate in the democratic process is ludicrous, to say the least!
- His #TPLF masters have been extinguished out of existence after committing treason against #Ethiopia & #Ethiopia-ns.

- So, now is begging of a transitional govt. to delegitimize the authority of the people's choice in @AbiyAhmedAli. It's a funny pipe dream, nothing else!

While the substance of his contribution is subject to debate, the sycophancy w/ which the likes of @SMGebru laud Seyoum Mesfin is completely belied by acts of high treason & insurrection he masterminded as one of the principal architects of #Ethiopia's destabilization!
In fact, his treasonous belligerence against the Federal Govt. of #Ethiopia & the Northern Command of the #ENDF completely nullify any achievement or contribution his sycophant followers seem to attribute to him - and force the country at large to validate!
Seyoum Mesfin became a treasonous criminal! Given how he **undiplomatically** scoffed at 3 separate ultimatums afforded to him (two 72-hour ultimatums & one 48-hour ultimatum) to peacefully surrender and instead put up a fire fight vs. the army that encircled him proves as much!

1.Thread: Summary of Ethiopian PM Abiy Ahmed’s Response to the ETH. Parliament on 30 Nov 2020 on what has transpired from the day he assumed office leading up to the attack on the Ethiopian National Defense Forces #ENDF by the now defunct Tigray People’s Liberation Front #TPLF.
2. How did he come to office? The #EPRDF elected Abiy Ahmed as PM of Ethiopia in April 2018 upon the heels of massive internal resistance and unrest in the country. The #TPLF did its very best to elect its own figurehead but failed.
3.The first few months: The PM was a virtual prisoner at the palace and his every move was monitored. His and his own family safety was at stake, and in his own words, “I was not in a position to protect my family, let alone protect the country and discharge my official duties."

Thread: What do we know so far about the #war on #Tigray in #Ethiopia, which has been running for nearly 2 months now? In this thread I will sum up some of the key developments.
First, the so-called “law and order” operation, which @PMAbiyAhmed declared completed one month ago, has not yet reached its basic objectives, and it is doubtful that it ever will. Hence, the war in #Tigray will continue indefinitely, or until a political settlement is reached.
#Tigrayan forces, under the command of the elected reg. gov. of #TPLF, are still waging an active resistance war. Over the last few days, Tigray forces seem to be on the offensive, challenging #ENDF military control of the main routes (Mekelle-Wukro-Adigrat; Mekelle-Alamata).

THREAD: #Abdi Iley appeared in court yesterday and pleaded not-guilty to the charges brought against him by federal prosecutors on 01/30/2019 - charges relate to the violence of August 4th 2018 alone, not the decade of abuses that preceded.

What does this signify for Somalis?
State charges against Abdi reveal what Somalis have always known: their second-class status in #Ethiopia & their lack of rights. Their lives were not deemed worthy when they were being systematically wiped out, & are still denied any worth as Abdi Is charged for August 4th alone
The state shaped and empowered Abdi Iley, he was specifically handpicked based upon his willingness to carry out the most brutal counter-insurgency campaign ever witnessed, both as head of regional security and President of the Somali Region (2010-2018).

1/ #AMISOM gets its first #Ethiopian🇪🇹 Force Commander. The last time Ethiopia offered to play this role in 2016, the proposed deal fell through...
2/ In early 2016, #Ethiopia🇪🇹 proposed taking the #AMISOM FC position if it could deploy an additional 1,000 troops into AMISOM & deploy a contingent to #Mogadishu. This was rejected in favor of a #Djibouti🇩🇯 FC. See p.201 amazon.com/Fighting-Peace…
3/ It's an interesting time for an #Ethiopian🇪🇹 #AMISOM FC given recent events around #Baidoa w the detention of #Robow involving #ENDF troops; the #AlShabaab ambush of ENDF convoys; & ongoing unilateral ENDF helicopter operations.
