11

While TPLF appeared to concede defeats in various battle fronts in northern Ethiopia by saying it was making tactical territorial adjustments, the federal authorities forces have launched victories in various cities bordering the northern Tigray space with high-ranking TPLF commanders being killed in movement, in response to authorities figures.

Speaking to journalists in Addis Ababa yesterday, solely a day sooner than Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed might announce his return to office after two-week struggle in the direction of rebel forces, the Prime Minister’s Spokeswoman Billene Seyoum Woldeyes talked about the federal navy’s northern command has continued to apprehend TPLF fights in good numbers as many are heading to demand surrender.

“The northern command continue to apprehend TPLF fighters in great numbers with many also heeding to the call that has been extended earlier this week to surrender and therefore heeding to the call and surrendering to the defense forces,” she knowledgeable journalist throughout the press briefing.

“Evidence” of human rights abuses

The prime minister’s spokesperson went on to highlight atrocities allegedly devoted by the TPLF as they abandon cities following advance by authorities forces.

“With a lot of these towns coming under the national defense forces, it is inevitable that there would be a lot of destruction and the TPLF occupation of many towns in the Amhara and the Afar regions has left behind and overwhelming destruction to public and private property as well as many lives,” she talked about.

“There is evidence emerging across many towns of grave atrocities and human rights abuses being inflicted by the TPLF upon the innocent civilians in those towns. In Gashena and Gashena & the N. Shoa town of Antsokia, we have reports of mass killings that have been undertaken by the TPLF on innocent civilians. Similarly there are also vast reports of rape that are emerging across these towns also occupied by the TPLF,” she added.

She further talked about that “Further investigations are needed to expose the grave human rights violations committed by TPLF.”

“Failure of some western countries and [international organizations] to look into the massive human rights violations & atrocities committed by TPLF in Afar & Amhara regions reveals the politically motivated & double standard position towards current human rights issues in Ethiopia.”
