Ethiopian authorities confirm TPLF blocked aid route via Afar region


A day after news of aid trucks blocked by Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), Ethiopia’s State of Emergency Fact Check Task Force on Tuesday confirmed that what it called a terrorist attack by TPLF blocked the Afar route. 

In a brief statement, the Task Force said, “In the past three days, TPLF committed terrorist attacks, blocking the road on 189 trucks carrying food and non-food aid to Tigray via Afar where the vehicles were forced to stop. The attacks took place in Ferentisu Yalo Woreda, zone four of the Afar Region.” 

Reports have been emerging that the TPLF took the war to the Afar region of Ethiopia, where it massacred dozens of civilians. More than 30,000 residents have been reportedly displaced from the area that came under the TPLF control earlier this week.

  1. All Humanitarian Organizations must review their policies. They are infiltrated by Terrorist TPLF criminals and instead of helping they are hurting the poor and hungry Tigrayans. TPLF is blocking humanitarian convoys from reaching Tigray because do not want Tigrayan to eat and feel safe. They are in the making of the most cruel brutal Human Tragedy. They want to repeat the same cruel Hawzen tragic political game again.

    Well this old cruel and ugly political game at the expense of hundreds and many thousands Tigrayan people’s life has EXPRIED and TPLF must be forced to stop and accept the truth that no Ethiopian wants its presence in power.
    Negligence, bias and the arrogance of those Humanitarians Organization is prolonging the sufferings and the senseless deaths of all Ethiopians by ignoring TPLF committed brutal crimes against humanity.
