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).

Over the past month, even though I have heard and read unimaginable acts of terror and atrocities being committed against our peace loving Tigrayans in #Ethiopia, I personally have not referred the crimes reported against them as #Genocide. 1/
Because, it’s hard to validate and trust the stories being told by people that you don’t know; there by making it difficult to delineate between #warcrimes, communal conflicts and #genocide. Last night a friend of mine told me, her family were able to reach their family member 2/
in the small #Humera town of #Tigray, so I tried calling my cousin who have called Humera home for 20+ years. He picked up and you can imagine how relieved I was to hear his voice. He was alive and that’s all I wanted to hear. He is the only family member 3/

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…
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.
