A Clash between the Ethiopian Defense Force and local residents in Gorgora, West Gondar was reported earlier this week. 

A member of the Defense Force reportedly opened fire and killed ten civilians in Gorgora.

According to local sources, nine were dead at the scene of the clash while one of the victims died later in a hospital. 

The incident happened on Wednesday. The narrative from the local media is that Defense Force members slaughtered an ox for feasting near the Ethiopian church. An event like that has happened in the past and feasting on Wednesday near the Ethiopian monastic church, on the day of the celebration of St. Gabriel’s Day was rather seen as a deliberate attempt to offend the church and the communities in Gorgora.

In the ensuing resistance from the community and FANO, the Defense Force opened fire on civilians. 

The government presented a different account of the incident. The West Dembiya district administration released a statement on Thursday. 

It said armed groups in the area made provocations and closed roads as Senior Commanders of Western Command of the Ethiopian Defense Force were heading to Gorgora town to visit the ‘General Lehager’ project that resulted in violence. 

Dembiya government communication confirmed that lives were lost without specifying the number of people killed in the incident. 

It is unclear if members of the defense force were killed during the clash. 

The region’s government said the “cause for all this was a failure to understand things properly and improper concern.” 

Regarding concern about the Ethiopian Church, it is noticeable that a considerable number of Ethiopians tend to think that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government is carrying out a mission to demolish the Ethiopian Church and that is seen as a Western power’s agenda.

    Humble Opinion, 29 July 2023
    a) What the above subject matter really means is not only demolishing the “Ethiopian Church” but ETHIOPIA ITSELF, IN ITS ENTIRETY >>> while Ethiopians of
    all sorts of stripes are squabbling among themselves — for no benefit to themselves.

    b) What it further means: The ancient noble country Ethiopia — known World wide — will be dead and disappear from the surface of the Earth.

    c) If you don’t believe me, just keep on sitting in artificial tranquility until THE END.

  2. According to this person Girma, except cities like Gondar, Bahr Dar and Dessie the rest of the region is under Fano control. If that is the case how can this happen?

  3. Killings of civilians must be stopped and condemned, but no one should aid the fannos and amhara militia in stirring up a civil war with the ENDF. Goats and sheep may be consumed by humans outside of the church’s grounds, though.

  4. No matter who the perpetrator is—the Fanno, the ENDF, or someone else—the killing of civilians must cease, and it must be denounced. However, no one should support the fannos and amhara militia as they incite a civil war with the ENDF. Outside the church grounds, however, people may eat goats , cow, boat, loaf, sheep.

    What is ENDF? You mean ORUT, the oromumma ragtag unprofessional thugs????

    Sure goats and sheep maybe consumed by humans anywhere. But can you get your own cattle for slaughter and stop steeling from the hardworking Amhara farmers???

    How many cattle have been sacrificed since the imbecile came to office to show he has made peace with his former tplf bosses, with his old/ oneg rivals and on and on???How many 50 meter long cakes has the hoodlum cut with other hoodlums and thugs to show he has made progress?
