ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – Following the serious attacks in four monasteries located in Debre-Elias Woreda, East Gojjam Zone of Amhara Region, only one monk was left unscathed in the area, Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) announced. 

Addis Maleda quoted its source as saying that an unidentified number of monks were killed in a five-day operation conducted consecutively from May 26 up to 31, 2023 by government security forces under the pretext of hunting down armed forces.

Head of Monastery Administration Department with EOTC, Aba Habte-Giorgis Asrat told Addis Maleda that serious damage has occurred on all four monasteries and churches in the area. He said that before the government security forces conducted the operation, which they call “law enforcement”, several monks and assistants used to live in the area. During the recent visit, the Monastery Administration Department confirmed that only one mink was found alive in the area, Aba Habte- Giorgis said. 

He further said that nothing was known about the whereabouts of the monks apart from those and their attendants who were proved to be killed by the operation. Several dead bodies were seen littering around in the wide garden of the monastery, Aba Habte- Giorgis said.   

Aba Habte-Giorgis said that the monasteries that were damaged heavily by the operation are Silassie, Kidane-Mihiret, Elias and Giorgis. Including the exterior face of the churches and monasteries, the temples were heavily shelled by the operation, according to the head. 

“The damage inflicted on the building of Kidane-Mihiret, in particular, is the most serious one,” he said. Here temple materials including holy properties and the dome of the church were reportedly destroyed.

Aba Habte- Giorgis further said that this time spiritual service has been disrupted fully in all churches. Joint discussion is underway between the Supreme ArchDiocese and Regional Diocese to investigate the severity of the damage and to rehabilitate the churches and monasteries, he said.

  3. አማራን እኮ “ሆያ ሆዬ” አደረጉት! “ሆያ ሆዬ →ሆ!” “አማራ →ሆ!” ለማንም እንደ መንጋ መነዳት? Look, CUT the ‘Oromuma’ crap →Haile-Selassie was half Oromo on both parents’ side!

    I watched government’s briefing, watched this clip youtu.be/pHfPNs2Xr9k?t=1 , and read this article. Why is it okay to use Amaras as cannon fodder? Why is it okay to use rogue EOTC Amara Priests to turn monastery/church in to Domestic Terrorism Base?

    1). Domestic Terrorists Flushed-Out of Dèbrè-Elias Monastery (DEM): Government’s briefing: “… ≥200 Domestic Terrorists led by ጃል Negadras Eskinder Nega (ጃል NEN), who used DEM as bastion-and-base, were crushed…” ጃል NEN fled & still on the run!

    2). ጃል NEN Only Needs Amara Corpse Count for Self-Promotion Propaganda: His entire family is safe [in US/Lebanon/etc]. He also shuttles between US & Ethiopia as he wants. He always uses Amaras & EOTC as cover to wreak havoc: Addis, DEM, Amara Zone…

    3). Ethiopian Lives Matter: ጃል NES got ≥200 Amaras & unspecified number of ENDF soldiers killed at DEM. He never completed 1st year at the American University in the US and never had a job →but runs a media empire. Should he continue to wreak havoc?
