ADDIS ABABA – Pressures knotted with coordinated propaganda are mounting from various sides against Amhara Regional State, sources said.
Ethio-News quoted sources as saying that armed infiltrators from Tigray Region pressured Abergelle, Korem, Telemt and Raya areas.
“TPLF Militias are streaming around in low land areas of Abergelle and Korem localities. The militias are making loud noises while drilling with full fire exchange and movements. The situation in Abergele, at a place specially known as Tsagibja, is much more serious. Many people were displaced from the area,” Ethio-news said.
A few days back the TPLF-led militias in this same area, Abergelle, opened fire and injured people. The source said that the militias in these areas have not been disarmed yet. Moreover, additional armed people are flowing into the area.
A brigade led by a colonel named Affera has reportedly inflicted an attack against Amhara Special Force and civilian people in Telemt area. “Now TPLF is infiltrating new armed people into a spot where Welkait Sugar Factory is located. They are now settling people by pulling them out from Debre-Abay and Endabaguna. This has been done deliberately to launch an attack aiming to control the area with prolonged movement,” sources said, adding that similar movements are witnessed around Wolkait and Waldiba area.
Militia movements have also been reported in Hada-Alga, Were-Baye, Tseaada Meda, and Cherecher localities of Raya plain areas, Ethio-News said. “New entrants are arriving in Chercher area in particular.”
People believed to be planted by TPLF have reportedly been engaged in a campaign saying that Amhara Special Force and Fano, posted in Korem, should leave the area. Sources said that the campaign is intended to create psychological pressure and erode the spirit of the army that is on standby in the area.
These same individuals are disseminating propaganda saying, “TPLF is not a threat to the Federal Government”. They said that as TPLF and the Federal Government reached an agreement, TPLF would not be a threat to the Federal Government.
“What they are now using is a strategy of identifying or targeting an enemy. TPLF is doing this to put pressure on Amahra with the vision of claiming or recapturing what it is calling Western Tigray,” Ethio-News said.
People are asking what roles the peace agreement has played ever since the Government and TPLF have signed it in Pretoria and Nairobi, according to the news source.
