“Oromo media says TPLF shot at OLA fighters
The top independent Oromo media, the Yeroo newspaper, reported that Tigrayan fighters gunned down dozens of Oromo rebels of the OLA.
The incident happened at the end of November in several Oromo zone towns of Amhara regional state. Reportedly, the infighting between the two allies happened after TPLF killed Oromo businessmen and continued transporting looted property out of the towns.
Initially, the OLA was accused of ignoring these crimes by TPLF but the tension grew (between Shene and TPLF) as federal government forces began making military gains at the end of November.
According to Yeroo media, the Amhara regional government was also credited for arming Oromo farmers who fought back against TPLF and OLA.”
