Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces that are said to have come from Hamdayet, Sudan, are reportedly routed this week as they attempt to enter Tigray of Ethiopia via Humera. 

Operations Department head within the Ethiopian Defense Force, Brigadier General Tesfaye Ayalew, told reporters in the capital Addis Ababa that about 320 forces were routed as they attempted to enter the country.  

About 192 of them have surrendered to the Ethiopian Defense Force and the remaining were entirely annihilated,  according to an update from the Defense Force. 

The TPLF forces who surrendered to the Ethiopia Defense Force

The forces are believed to have, as claimed by the Ethiopian Defense Force, involvement during the Maikadra massacre – where more than 700 people, mostly ethnic Amhara were hacked to death in early November as the TPLF forces lost the war for the Ethiopian Defense Forces. Most of the key TPLF leaders are either killed during the war or captured, and arrested. 

They were given a mission to deliver communication devices,medicine and other supplies to the TPLF leaders who were said to be hiding somewhere in Tigray along the direction of the Ethio-Sudan Border, said the news update from the defense force. 

According to Brig. Gen. Tesfaye, individuals who were in the United States working for the Ethiopian government but later deserted and traveled to Sudan were involved in coordinating the TPLF military mission that was tasked to help TPLF leaders escape to Sudan. 

Several radio communication devices, satellite phones, medicine and drugs are seized from those who were captured during the military operation along the Ethiopia Sudan border.  Among the items seized are 103 motorola radio, and 2 samsung international mobile telephone. 

The preparation for the military mission took place in  Hamdayet, Sudan, where tens of thousands of Ethiopians are staying as refugees. 

Sudan has invaded Ethiopian territories – in some places up to 50 kilometers deep in the Ethiopian border – after November 4 as the Ethiopian Army based in the region was withdrawn due to what the government calls law enforcement operation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

The United States has been putting pressure on Ethiopia to end what it calls “conflict in Tigray” and open up for a political dialogue. 

Earlier this week, International Humanitarian Organizations dispatched aid from Sudan to the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Activists on social media warn the Ethiopian government to reinforce checkpoints and thoroughly check trucks to ensure that they are not smuggling devices and other supplies to the TPLF  which has claimed that it is in a guerrilla war against “Prosperity Party forces” – as they call it. 

Early this month, Ethiopia designated TPLF as a terrorist organization.

  1. Why is prime minister Abyie Ahmed contemplating and allowing the US and UK-sponsored international humanitarian organizations? While we know that, they are clearly the supporters of terrorist TPLF juntas.
    US and UK will love to bring back their errand boys TPLF terrorists and therefore they can restart their disrupted plans, which is disintegrating MOTHERLAND ETHIOPIA. both US and UK are the worst enemies of ETHIOPIA, its essential that, we must teach our children and the next generations that the US and UK are worse enemies of ETHIOPIA and therefore they should not trust these two anti ETHIOPIAN countries.


  2. When I look at these photos it just leaves me heartbroken. When I look the photos I see young people who don’t belong there and don’t deserve to be marched into an awaiting fire they know it will smolder them. Their counterparts are busy playing video games and having their entire 10 fingers hash-tagging away with friends and followers they never met in person just arguing and fussing about what their celebrity idol is wearing lately. They were and still are being misled, taken advantage of their young and raw emotion by sweet talking weisenheimers who do that from their comfy homes here among us, Europe and Oceania. Someone called me this afternoon to tell me that these goons here in the USA are making preparations to declare a new Republic of Tigray. They may do that at outlets like the National Press Club in DC. These connivers don’t care and they have made that very clear that they don’t care if every living and breathing youth from Tigray is wiped out. What do you think they mean when they mumble with ‘we will fight to the last person’? That means to the last young man/woman from Tigray except them and their loved ones. They send the youth to his inevitable death while they argue with their wives/girlfriends about which filet mignon they will have for dinner tonight.

  3. I am curious — really, sincerely, very curious.
    Where is the person, named debre something who master minded the entire conflict between Tigray and Ethiopia for his own entire benefit and glory? It is always amazing that people — anywhere around the Globe — are galvanized to sacrifice their precious LIFE for born charlatans. The Good Lord Up in comfortable Heaven must have his (or her) reason. Good Lord, forgive me. It is a slip of the pen.

  4. This is just hot off the telegram I just received from my homeboy Chairman Mao, sorry Chairman Debre. In the telegram he told me that in the recent fight that took place at a place called Hawzen his forces had killed 559,396 soldiers of the ENDF and captured more than 625,487 others. He had also captured 350 howitzer tanks, 125 Mig-29 and Su-35’s and the list goes on and on. Disney World characters Mickey Mouse and Ariel were also among the captured. There were entertaining ENDF soldiers when he launched a well planned surprise attack. . His forces had also engaged the forces of Isaias at a place called Adigrat in Eritrea and Isaias himself is in captivity in Hawzen. He also informed me that his forces have surrounded Addis/Finfine and Abiy is negotiating the instruments of surrender. Jula and Bacha are toast already! He has asked me to tell you and the world that he will declare Tigray a new and sovereign nation to be called The Peoples Republic of Tigray on this coming Friday May 21, 2021. He has bestowed a dual citizenship on me in the same telegram. So after Friday you dare not call me Ethiopian-American but Tigrayan-American!!!!
