Debretsion Gebremichael: Until Abiy Ahmed is defeated, the bitter fighting will continue


ADDIS ABABA – The ongoing hostilities between the Tigray Defense Forces [TDF] and the Ethiopian National Defense Forces [ENDF] will likely continue for some time, despite calls from the international community for both sides to agree to a ceasefire.

Debretsion Gebremichael, president of the late Popular Front for the Liberation of Tigray [TPLF], said the TDF did not intend to negotiate with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who also stood firm and pledged to push the Tigray rebels further.

In his rare speech recorded and sent by pro-TDF activists, the besieged president of the Tigray region affirmed that Addis Ababa is determined to fight, adding that TDF will have no choice but to retaliate for it. good of his people.

Debretsion Gebremichael alleged that Addis Ababa had mobilized resources to exterminate the Tigray people, adding that it was possible that Addis Ababa would use outside aid, including, but not limited to, sophisticated weapons.

“Near his disappearance, the enemy is doing everything not to be buried. This is what we are seeing now,” he said. “The enemy is not only using what they have in hand, but also weapons from outside to attack us.”

“War is violent in nature. We have never underestimated this. We must understand that the enemy is doing their best not to die. The enemy is mobilizing massive resources, including outside aid, but this will never change the outcome, “he added. .

Some claim that Turkey, the United Arab Emirates [UAE], and China have aided the Ethiopian government with weapons of mass destruction. However, the three countries have distanced themselves from the demands.

Earlier this year, it was established that Eritrea was helping Ethiopia in Tigray, resulting in mass killings. The United States and the UN have threatened to slap Eritrea with a series of embargoes, leading to the exit of the Eritrean army from Tigray.

But the Tigray leader now says his team will continue to fight until Abiy Ahmed’s government is completely defeated. His feelings come amid an ongoing offensive against Tigray, with Abiy Ahmed on the pitch to supervise.

“Their plan is to exterminate the people of Tigray and its leaders. They have shown their hatred, they are not leaving anything for tomorrow. We fight the enemy with vigor. Until the enemy is completely buried, the fierce fighting will continue. we have started, ”he said.

Fighting between the two sides began in November 2020 when rebels in Tigray attacked the northern command, triggering a response from the Ethiopian National Defense Forces. However, the army lost ground in most areas to TDF.
