Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation (EBC), state-owned media, on Friday aired video of footage of estimated thousands of what it said are captives from the war with the TPLF.

Those who spoke to EBC reporters said that it was the TPLF that started the war in the Kobo area. They talked about forced conscription in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.

One of the captives remarked that it is hard to escape TPLF conscription by changing one’s residence as the network loyal to the TPLF system is everywhere.

In a recent mobilization town hall meeting, Debretsion, TPLF chairman, said that “any Tigrean that is not willing to fight for Tigray will not have equal rights with those who fought for Tigray.”

  1. If this young man gave this account of what has been going on the battle fronts on Debre’s side while he is prison, it is a thundering no no with me. Prisoners no matter who are in agonizing distress once they are in custody of someone who had seen as mortal enemy. Parading and putting them in a position where they will say anything to please their captors is against the Geneva Convention. Giving them the chance to send greeting to their loved ones is okay and should always be encouraged. Now all these international human rights groups are going to have a field day with this. Stop it and stop it now!!! It is not in our culture either!
