Ethiopia : Press Statement on Protection of Cultural Sites

Cultural sites _ Ethiopia


TPLF has continued launching attacks and creating havoc in the adjacent territories of the Tigray region. The TPLF forces also continue to impede humanitarian assistance, thereby putting the lives of many millions at risk.

Despite the unilateral ceasefire declared by the Government, the TPLF forces have turned a deaf ear to the call by the international community to cease all sorts of hostility and allow the delivery of humanitarian assistance to the people in need and for farmers in the Region to make use of the rainy season.

Due to the recent attacks by the force in some areas in the Amhara Region, the people are concerned about the possible destruction of religious and other institutions by the TPLF which signify the centuries-old identity, religion, and culture of Ethiopian people. This concern stems from the fact that the TPLF has done a lot of pillaging, looting, and destruction over the past eight months.

The Government will take all the necessary measures to ensure that these sacred places and other institutions are well protected and call on the international community to condemn this heinous act of the TPLF.

  1. While that will be secondary after peace, ethiopians, amara, wello, must work hard to rennovate Lalibela. It has been said, one of the goal if tolf and foreigners for the past27 yrs was to deliverately sabotage the building so it is now at the brink of disintegration. Ethiopia would not have history and evidence without Lalibela. Know this most are not aware ethiopians who keep saying unesco, unesco, it is signature signed off and given to Western countries. So, if l were ethiopians, make sure you signout of unesco agreement asap! Unesco heritage means you have given your artifacts, architecture to 3rd fireign entity, who is now allowed to own it! The UN has been working to its fundersnwhich makes sense so itnis not for the world except for it funders.
