THREAD: This is Ethiopia!
I have been exposed to 10,000s, if not 100,000s, of horrendous images over the past 15 months. But, this image is the most perfect representation of what Ethiopia means to #Tigray! 2/n

Ethiopia has always laughed at, smiled, and enjoyed the agonies of the people of #Tigray following the heinous atrocities she would inflict on them generations over generations.

If @MSF @MSF_Espana @MSF_EastAfrica do really want to know the whole story that led to the execution of their 3 staffs in #Tigray in June 2021, I'm more than willing to put you in touch with a medical doctor who'd been working with #MSF_Spain under the leadership of #Maria. 2/n

Needless to say that the medical doctor had survived repeated murder attempts at the hands of the Ethiopian troops before he finally fled Abi Adi hospital because he felt death was imminent for him.

THREAD: 🛑the untold agony🛑

A heart-wrenching💔💔💔 testimony from a Mekelle based #Tigrayan journalist!

A journalist who was abducted & tortured by the Ethiopian troops [some soldiers were even vowing to murder him] in February 2021 shares his agony with the world.
@hrw 2/n

Fitsum Berhane is a #Tigrayan journalist who was abducted from his home in Mekelle & tortured by the Ethiopian troops last year only because he served as a translator for the int'l media during their visit to the sites of the most horrendous massacres ever.

Attention: Fire at Um Rakuba refugee camp in Sudan!

Note: today's fire accident is for the 3rd/4th time in the past two months.


@FilippoGrandi @antonioguterres @BradSherman @SamanthaJPower @AsstSecStateAF ImageImage 2/n

Bear in mind that Abiy Ahmed, high ranking govt officials, and high military commanders of the Ethiopian Army have been continuously dehumanising the #TigrayanRefugeesInSudan.

So, the @UN needs to take these repetitive fire accidents very seriously.

Ethiopian fascism at its climax stage!

The demonisation & dehumanisation of ethnic #Tigrayans have been conducted publicly by Ethiopian journalists, politicians, public figures, activists, & genocide apologist & paid sympathisers of the Ethiopian regime. 2/n

Here I provide tangible evidence to support my claim.

Alemneh Wasa of zehabesha is a journalist by profession and has been at the core of the anti-#Tigrayan movement, especially, for the past 15 months.

Pan-Africanists should #KnowMore before saying #NoMore!

The medical doctor was lucky to survive a 45-minute ordeal - a dozen of soldiers pointing their Kalashnikovs at him & urging themselves to brutally execute him with every passing minute.

THREAD: who murdered #Maria of @MSF in #Tigray?

Today, I reveal a story that I have kept private to myself for several months about what were the events that finally led to the murder of Maria, Yohannes, & Tedros.

I interviewed my friend who escaped ...

THREAD: "We are almost dead bodies!"

What a heart-wrenching💔 expression from one of my contacts in #WesternTigray!

I saw the following picture going viral on Facebook. I was curious to know more & contacted the very person who posted it. 2/n

"A translation to his post: "Those who are in this picture are Tigrayans whom the Ethiopian govt announced about saying they are PoW. One of them [the one pointed out with an arrow] is a person whom I know very well. He's detained at Milabferes, Adigoshu, [Western Tigray]."

Ethnic profiling at the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia!

One of my friends in Addis Ababa:

<<Gerewa, yesterday they took a copy of the employment IDs of every #Tigrayan employee at the Head Office of the Commerical Bank of Ethiopia.>> 2/n

I was curious and asked: " Wait, did they take the copy of the IDs of only the #Tigrayan employees or of all employees regardless of their ethnic background?"
To which my friend replied, "It is only the #Tigrayans ..."

#TheAgonies: #TigrayWarRapeVictims

THREAD: Western Tigray

Another day, another agony, a devastating story shared by a young #Tigrayan woman from a refugee camp in Sudan.

As I write her testimony, my heart is beating faster and and faster ...
@LaetitiaBader @jbgallopin 2/n
Few days ago, I wrote a lengthy thread about Christine, a teenager who was gang-raped by the Amhara Special Forces inside the compound of St Gabriel Orthodox Church at Humera town, Western Tigray.

Today, I write the story of Paula, another #Tigrayan woman.

THREAD: #WeaponizedRape
Yesterday, I promised to write a thread about a 19-yrs-old girl who I talked with on the phone. I couldn't get the courage to write about her b/se I was overwhelmingly devastated by her story. But, I have to tell her story to the world no matter what. 2/n
Christine is originally from #Maikadra town. She and her family had to flee their hometown when it was changed to a hell on November 11, 2020. They took refuge at Humera town. After some days, the Ethiopian Army & Amhara Forces entered Humera. @LaetitiaBader @RepMcCaul @hrw

A heart-wrenching testimony from a #Tigrayan resident of Addis Ababa city:

Translated into English as follows:
Let my name remain anonymous for the sake of my safety. I'm writing to you about ... 2/n
..the atrocity that has been committed on us. So, please disseminate this to all concerned bodies.

THREAD: #FreeGenetBirhanuManjus

Genet Birhanu, a selfless #Tigrayan humanitarian activist & CEO of Tinsae Tigray Humanitarian Organisation, was detained half an hour ago. This is for the 2nd time Abiy Ahmed's agents are detaining Genet within few months. ImageImageImage 2/

Half an hour ago, the police arrived at Genet's office. They found her helping #Tigrayan university students whom @AbiyAhmedAli abandoned without anyone giving them food & shelter.

#Tigrayan refugees massacred by @AbiyAhmedAli's agents!


#Tigrayan refugees, who returned on their own via boats or repatriated by Saudi Arabia sponsored flights to Ethiopia, are being abducted & #massacred by @AbiyAhmedAli's forces in the Afar regional state. 2/
Ethiopian government's media broadcasted as if the government of Tigray recruited #ChildSoldiers and sent them to battlefields. ETV claimed that 👇bodies are of the #Tigrayan #ChildSoldiers in Afar region. But they're abducted & #massacred by the Ethiopian troops.

Let it be clear to the whole world, I have credible information that it was the #Eritrean troops [in civilian clothes] who abducted #Welday & #Marta at Shire two days ago. 2/
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.
