Multiple pictures going viral among Ethiopians in social media indicates that the  Tigray People’s Liberation Front is extensively using child soldiers in the battle against the Ethiopian Defense Force and Amhara region forces. 

There has been an outcry from the international community and some state actors, notably the United States of America, about alleged famine and human rights violations. This time, they are mum about TPLF using child soldiers in battles – not to mention TPLF intransigence to continue war and take it in areas outside the Tigray region of Ethiopia

The International Community has been calling for an end to the conflict and resorting to political dialogue to resolve the dispute between the Federal government and TPLF. 

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government declared a unilateral ceasefire as of June 28, 2021. As it turns out, the action emboldened the TPLF leaders to the point that they called the unilateral ceasefire a “joke.” 

In the last two weeks, TPLF forces intensified their military offensive and were able to recapture towns like Alamata and Korem – which they lost following government forces offensive in December 2020. 

TPLF deployed child soldiers extensively in the latest offensives. 

Ethiopians have launched a social media campaign to condemn what they call hypocrisy. 

The war in the Tigray region of Ethiopia is increasingly  being understood as a proxy one. Many Ethiopians tend to believe that the United States have a vested interest in bringing TPLF back to power. 

In May 2021, the Ethiopian Parliament declared TPLF and Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) as terrorist organizations.

    Humble Commentary, 15 July 2021
    When are WE AFRICANS stop being fools in front of COLONIAL POWERS? To repeat the broken record over, and over, and over, Colonial Powers have absolutely no interest over the BLACK AFRICAN HUMAN BEINGS. NEVER, NEVER. NEVER . Their interest has always been — and will always be — on the NATURAL EARTHLY RICHNESS of AFRICA. FULL STOP!!!

    The charade that we witness — let me be brutally honest — has always been, and will ways be, for the natural resources of Africa. To secure the African free natural blessing, it seems there MUST be frictions among Africans that will keep them squabbling, among themselves, for eternity. And it has been proved that Africans insightfulness is only limited squabbling and fighting each other. Eventually, the mushrooming of so many mini-States with equivalent hungry African dictators mushrooming and busy being the richest individuals — completely oblivious of their poor and helpless brethren. And thus, AFRICA is labeled, by classical writers, as the hopeless, hapless, “DARK “ (*} AFRICA. Full Stop.
    ——————————

    Footnote
    (*) A European Classical Writer found it necessary to add the word “DARK” as an adjective to the well known nomenclature >>> “AFRICA” The World is not fair to Africans. But then, the behaviour of our Leaders with top most Western/Eastern/Northern/Southern Education as attested by the highest Doctor of Philosophy Degrees, bestowed upon them as cardinal testimony of their wisdom and ability to come to the rescue of their DEAR BELOVED BEAUTIFUL MOTHER AFRICA. in its HOUR of NEEDS.
    Dear Reader: BE THE JUDGE. ARE WE PREPARED — AND DO WE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES — TO SAVE OUR OWN MOTHER???

  2. child rapist as old as 4 & 8 are worried for children . The most ridiculous political agenda ever spread and propagated and received by the nations who are deceived to accept the trashy talks of Amhara elites, genociders and at a time religious fanatics (Mahibrekidusan )

    did you forgot that you rtaped many mothers and their children and murdered them?

    Mahibrekidusan and amhara elites invited arab mercenaries to invadeTigray, cradle of Christianity since 4th Cen.

  3. Terrorist TPLF is undoubtedly defeated, the only thing that is left is, to completely eradicate it, though it will never regrow ever again.

    LONG LIVE ETHIOPIA AND HER PEOPLE WHEREVER THEY MAYBE.

  4. Shameless terrorists are like cockroaches, they are all over the world, spreading false propaganda, fake news, killing indiscriminately, doing harms to civilians
