At least 80 Waldeba Monastery monks were reportedly injured after Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces attacked them in a locality called May Lebeta. 

They are said to have sustained serious injuries from the attack. Nuns are among the victims. 

Berhanu Tekleyared, a journalist and an activist, cited credible sources, survivors from the attack, to report that monks were assaulted by TPLF forces under the leadership of Hagos. 

The TPLF force also looted artifacts, relics and other sacred items from the monastery. 

The monks are appealing for the government to urgently do something to protect them. They have also encouraged Ethiopian patriarch Abune Mathias to break his silence regarding the attack on monks and looting of sacred items from the monastery. 

According to Berhanu’s report, the monks seem to be concerned that the patriarchate has been silent about the recurring attacks in Waldba.

    I will not be surprised.
    Yes, even the ‘representatives of God will sell their SOULS for earthly tranquility and practical benefit.
    Please, don’t let the gown and that cross on their hands deceive you.
    It is sad that the ordinary, honest, ‘God fearing’ African people are deceived by charlatans, for time immemorial.
    And that is why Africa is backward — looking up to God, way up into the sky, while the smart aleck white coloured charlatans. on the ground, looting what the innocent Black African had on his hands !!!!!!!!! A perfect example that even the good lord up in the sky cannot control his favourite & beautiful & white children, down on Earth. How is that for fairness?!?!?!?!? THE END
    What a CRIME; What a TRAGEDY in broad day light.

    THANK YOU borkena.com for giving us the opportunity to openly express our sadness and tragedy. THAK YOU, again.

  2. Where is the protection of Churches, Monasteries, Hospitals, Schools, innocent peoples lives and livelihood? Why is PM Abiy not doing anything? Why is he against arming the Fano who are the dedicated and well disciplined protectors of their neighbors in the absence of Federal Army who could not be present everywhere?

    Why Dr. Abiy is not sending enough Federal Army to protect North Wollo citizens and cities from Terrorist TPLF brutality and send TPLF back to Tigray? Why not take the fight back to Tigray where TPLF Terrorists hide and train Terrorists?

  3. TPLF (Tigray people liberation front) are terrorists, always has been, always will be, the messengers of the devil, Nazis, fascists and neocolonialist Europeans, England and America, the soldiers of the axis of evil. Always the traitors, it’s consistent with their past historical facts and in their bloodline.

  4. Please donot torture and abuse monks for political profit and accuse TPLF later . You are trying every agenda and to defame TDF but it will not work for you since you are not around the table but in the battle field . You cannot kill armed man with your filthy propaganda by abusing Monks .

    Amhara goons, stop abusing monks and destroying churches to put the blame on Tigreans and their protectors, TDF and TPLF.
