TPLF suffered casualties attempting to cross Eritrean border : report


Barely a week after Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) spokesperson, Getachew Reda, told media in the west that it plans to “pursue the enemy to Eritrea and the rest of Ethiopia,”  it seems that there was an attempt to cross Eritrean border. 

A social media update by Eritrean Press, one of the most reliable sources on Eritrean affairs,said on that TPLF forces suffered heavy casualties on Saturday while attempting to cross the Eritrean border. It happened on the Rama front. 

“Heavy causalities today on TPLF forces trying to cross to #Eritrea|n border from Rama front. Source says that the scene is horrific. Ethiopia,” said the source. 

Eritrea’s Ministry of Information has not released any statement regarding the reported incident. 

TPLF, this week, rejected a unilateral ceasefire by the Ethiopian government  which led to the entry of defeated TPLF troops to Mekelle, capital of the region. 

The spokesperson called the ceasefire a “joke.” 

The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday called on the TPLF to respect the ceasefire. 

In a related development, there have been reports of widespread human rights violations against civilians after TPLF forces entered Mekelle and other towns in the region.  The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission on Saturday issued a statement expressing concern for the safety of civilians in the region.

  1. The American, British, and European union-supported terror group TPLF has been emboldened by the support it has gotten from US President Joe Biden and the British prime minister Boris Johnson, we will see how far this terror group TPLF’s partners will push it to destabilize Ethiopia and Eritrea, it’s almost a given that, Susan Rise, Antony Blinken and Jeffrey Feltman are working sleeplessly to bring back TPLF terrorists to power, so they can terrorize, massacre, loot the nation of Ethiopia, as they have done for the past 27 years, supported by USA, UK and the European Union, and destabilize the entire region of the East African nations, as well as fight their endless wars on African countries, reaping Africa’s precious natural materials, not found anywhere else in the world, except naturally GOD given rich black continent of Africa.


  2. Anyone wanna bet? How about a billion dollars? My homeboy Chairman and Reverend Debre just gave me that amount just for the wager. If you dare you can bet against my prediction that the indomitable army of my homeboy will capture Asmara and the entire Eritrea in less than a month. On August 1, 2021 his bullet proof army will wipe out the entire Eritrean and Ethiopia army and Chairman Debre will declare 89 internationally recognized autonomous republics under his benevolent leadership. That is 80 republics in the present day Ethiopia and 9 republics in the present day Eritrea. This inevitable victory will once and for all prove the fact that Eritreans, Oromos, Amharas, Somalis, Afars, Sidamas, Gambelas, Benishanguls and everyone in these two countries don’t know how to fight except Chairman Debre and his Gold Race. All of them are cowards and hide under the skirt of their mothers at the firing first shot. Look at what he just did. He was busy developing his country when suddenly he heard commotion outside. When asked his people what was all the noise about and they told him it was the Ethiopian, Eritrean, Somali and UAE armies. That was when he pulled out his Smith & Revolver and fired in the sky. Then the entire invading armies started running away in all directions. In the midst of the stampede women from his Gold Race were able to capture 532,625 soldiers of the invading armies using the wooden spatulas they were using in their kitchens. This is the first an armed soldier was captured with a wooden spatula. Anyone wanna bet? The latest wire I received from BBC, AFP. AP, NY Times and Reuters is both Isaias and Abiy have fled their countries. I’ve confirmation that Abiy is hiding in an abandoned building on 9th Street in DC and Isaias in some ‘hafaa’ in a condemned old shotgun house in Jeddah.

  3. Make that: This is the first time in the history of warfare where an armed soldier was captured by a woman with a wooden spatula.
