Ethiopia’s state media on Tuesday said thirty two suspected TPLF operatives were on a mission in the Benishangul Gumuz region, where there had been recurring massacres of innocent civilians for nearly three years now.

According to the State Media, they were on a mission to carry out the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) agenda – destabilizing the region. 

Abdulazim Mohammed, the region’s police commissioner, reportedly said the TPLF operatives were trained both in the country and abroad (the neighboring region is Sudan with whom Ethiopia has dispute over the border issue) with the coordination of TPLF clandestine operatives. 

The report added that they were captured as they were crossing to the Ethiopian region, from Sudan, via Kurmuk districts of Assosa. They were, it was said, crossing the border for three days in a row.  Over 40,000 TPLF forces who crossed the Ethio-Sudan border in the northwest of the country in November 2020 are believed to be given further military training with the aim to be deployed against Ethiopia. 

Many of those arrested are said to be young people who are lured with the idea that the Federal government is weakened. 

Among those captured are some members of the Benishangul People’s Liberation Movement and candidates who took part during the sixth general election. 

The region’s police authority said it has seized electronic devices, including laptops,and firearms. It has also confiscated bank account holder books. 

Members of the Ethiopian Defense Force, the region’s special force and militia worked together during the operation, as reported by Ethiopian News Agency. 

Ethiopia has been at war with the TPLF, and many Ethiopians seem to be convinced that the group is an agent for a proxy war with the aim to dismember Ethiopia, for over nine months now. 

The terrorist group took the war outside the Tigray region, targeting Afar and Amhara regions, where it displaced more than 400,000 civilians.  

In the Afar region, it massacred over 250 civilians a few weeks ago, including 107 children.  A new report published this week claimed that the TPLF forces also massacred villagers in North Wollo and burned an entire village.

  1. How there is sustematic collaboration to clenase the ethiopuan traditional christian societies by West, Arabs and Liberation Fronts.

    The West betrayed this christian societies hat has been allied with for centuries by creating within this society Liberation Fronts ( Eplf, Tplf and Olf). The West tru allies is Islamic fundamentalists Muslim nations and the West is doing favor for islamic fundamenralist nations by throwing Ethiopua into the hands by forming liberation fronts via Egypt. Even after the annhilation if Tplf, there is no guarantee for the safety of thus Christian society that has its god given rigjt to live in its land. Years of coopeeatiin between Muslim
    and Western fundamentalists had turned full blown formed the spreadnof Islam and turning nations such as Maldives, Tanzania, Indonesia, etc Islamic natiins, away from their true traditiinal way of living. Sorry there has always been mutual benefit between the muslim and westen fundamentalists. If not Islamic you are thrown into communists asnin Liperation Fronts. The weak Ethiopuan fiaspora are not telling the true nature of who Liberatiin Fronts are, they are hard core.communist fundamentalists the type of groups that annhilated the traditional societies of Russia and China. If not Communism or Islam fundamentalism, it is the fake imported protestantism, that is based on money and nothing to do with true faith but is there to divide societies. If kot protestantism, it is the good old colinialism hidden behind economy.
