Tigray rebel leader Debretsion Gebremichael new video footage

Debretsion Gebremichael, Tigray Rebel Leader is seen on the left side of his escort


Unverified new video footage of former president of Tigray regional state and chairman of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), Debretsion Gebremichael, is circulating on social media. 

He is seen walking with the help of a cane escorted by several dozens of his guerrilla forces.  He and his force are seen in the video are believed to be in the wilderness of  Tigray. The 44-second video shows fatigued Debretsion with a burnt face, and significant weight loss.  

It is,however, unclear if the video is a recent one or not. Ethiopian government officials have not yet remarked about it. 

The video footage was released on social media days after Let. General Bacha Debele gave an update on the situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

Last week on Friday, Let. Gen Bacha claimed that the Ethiopian Defense Force aborted an attempt by remaining TPLF leaders to escape to Sudan through Metema.  He also said that the guerrilla forces aiding the leaders were routed during the operation. 

The government admitted that a military helicopter was downed but due to technical problems, not shot down as the supporters of the rebels claim. 

The claim is not verified from independent sources.

  1. I told you umpteen times before that Chairman Mao, am sorry Debre has been chilling right here with me. He has muscled up so fast that he puts Steve Reeves, Reg Park and Jean-Claude Van Damme to shame. Look out Bacha! He is pissed off that you called him a rat!!!! He told me that he has invented wings for his fighters to fly undetected. Look out Abiy! Fire in the hole!!! I mean fire in the sky!!!!

  2. Borkena,
    Everyone knows video is “unverified.” But that is not the point. The point is for Tplf to get you and other social media to recruit tegaru and raise fund for it! Did you not get that? There are about 20 rebels led by once powerful, corrupt, and weak Debretsion. No good sign at all. What to do? Easy; photoshop a footage and get it out there before doomsday, which could come any day!

    Humble Commentary, 28 April 2021
    At last, His Excellency Ato Debretsion is out like a HERO who stays, and be on the front with wooden cane, to lead his followers. After all, it was the Hero Ayte/Ato Debretsion Gebremichael who started the whole thing in which countless innocent followers sacrificed their precious Life for the benefit of His Excellency Debretsion Gebremichal to be on the TOP POST in ETHIOPIA — with Tigray being within Ethiopia, of course. In other words, in his sharp mined, filled with vast knowledge — unparalleled any where.– his private bank accounts around the Globe are in tact for ever and ever and ever. It is, of course, a wishful thinking. It is the History of Dictators around the Globe. What and when would be the END of the story??? Keep glued yourself to the TV. OH! OH! OH! I forgot about the good old loyal followers of Debretsion? They are in the custody of Prime Minster Abiy waiting for the outcome of justice in the court of law. What a TRAGEDY!!! As the Ethiopian saying goes >>> “SAYCHEGR TIL”. THE END

  4. I have no mercy for the terrorist leader Debretsion and all the rest of them, TPLF is the worst Threatore (BANDAS) in the recent memories of Ethiopia’s history. It’s visible GOD is punishing the terrorist TPLF, who looted the wealth of the nation, massacred hundreds, thousands of innocent Ethiopians, and destroyed entire Ethiopia and currently working with Ethiopia’s historical and traditional enemies to break up Ethiopia.
    the terrorist leader(s) Debretsion and his comrades are dying a slow death, and that’s well deserved.
