This week, reports indicated the “withdrawal of Ethiopian Defense Force” from many parts of the Amhara region of Ethiopia. Many Ethiopian news providers have reported on it.

However, this does not seem to be the case. Ethio News, on Friday reported that the Defense Force is taking zonal towns and districts  in addition to maintaining positions in major towns in the region.

The source added new developments have been observed in Gorgora, Menth, Debre Tabor and from different directions in the regional capital Bahir Dar. 

Based on Ethio News report – and they work with very local sources from different parts of the region – the report that the Ethiopian Defense Force is withdrawing from the region is at least misleading. 

It is also confirmed that fighting still underway between the Ethiopian Defense Force and Fano combatants in many parts of the region.

There have been reports of widespread and egregious human rights violations in the region since the Ethiopian government deployed a defense force in the region under the guise of ‘disarming fano.” The rights abuse targeting ethnic Amhara has manifested traits  ethnic cleansing and genocide.

Government forces targeted civilian areas with heavy artillery killing many civilians in many towns in the region, recurring drone attacks have killed hundreds of civilians and there have been extrajudicial executions in many towns that claimed hundreds of civilians – and all of these were confirmed by human rights organizations including the United Nations. 

It is too early to say whether it is lip service or a diplomatic strategy to camouflage an orchestrated attack on ethnic Amhara but it is noticeable that a massacre of ethnic Amhara has, for the first time, become a topic of discussion on platforms like the United Nations. 

Before the issue made it to forums like that, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration oversaw the massacre of tens of thousands of ethnic Amhara in many parts of Ethiopia – mainly in the Oromia region.

The TPLF, OLF, and now the Ethiopian government have been targeting ethnic Amhara within the Amhara region of Ethiopia and many other parts of the country.

    Borkena Editors described their websites as “Borkena is Ethiopian news in Amharic and Canadian English. Unbiased and accurate news updates from Ethiopia on a daily basis”. And this highly esteemed and trusted website states, “”The TPLF, OLF, and now the Ethiopian government have been targeting ethnic Amhara within the Amhara region of Ethiopia and many other parts of the country.”

    Where are those beautiful and heartwarming phrases like “”Editor’s note: Views in the article do not necessarily reflect the views of Borkena.com”?
    If everyone is targeting Amhara, there should be a bad apple within Amhara, and some refer to this bad apple as “Fanno” and others as ” Mahibrekidusan” (a poisonous organization)
    You better preach peace and harmonious coexistence among fellow, intermarried, lovely Ethiopian ethnic groups. Ethiopians need peace, and no single Ethiopian, including those in ENDF, should die for the sake of warmongering power-hungry men. There should be a national dialogue among all warring groups.
    Stop your mockery of the lives of children and innocent civilians.

  3. As per usual a very biased reporting from borkena. Eventough most news papers lean towards a certain political agenda; Borkena has to be one of the most biased in their reporting whether it’s from their opinion program or their staff written News. Such a shame to disregard neutral and factual reporting

  4. yes I don’t believe PP will ever leave Amhara Region alone because of genuie fright that Fano will continue to Addis after finishing the job in the region…and I don’t balme them….too much mistrust in Ethiopia nowadays

    • Why did the so called pp agree with Amaras to join to fight Tplf and all if the sudden the govt mistrust Amara? Plus, why did the govt allowed another Weyane and foreign mercenaries to enter Amara? Why didn’t Amara fight new groups entering from Tigray and Sudan? Amara should have cleaned every Tplf/ Weyane from it’s land so there is no confusion. The government just watched so it has excuses to enter and control Amara.

  5. PP/ Any government is double agent. It wants to be in power so it supports both East and West. It gets arms from Orthodox nation Russia and gives to non Orthodox Olf ( radical Islam and ethnic fantics) to depopulate Amaras and Tigrayans. It is not eliminating the cancers Olf or Tplf. Plus, the Tigrayans and Amaras in their name Tplf and foreign- grown Amaras are controlling Tigray and Amara as if they are being supported against PP. The reality is these Tplf or foreign- born Tplff/ Amara/ others in fact are inside Tigray and Amara to facilitate the depopulation of Christian Tigray and Amara. For example, the Diaspora especially those in West are useless and in fact will be tools against Ethiopia as they are controlled by West.

  6. While pp government is disarming Amara population based on advice from it’s foreigners, at the same time, Jal Maro, Olf, and Oromiya is armed to the teeth. The Ethiopian arm force is a joke! The balance is already weighed and the army is already 60% is under Oromiya/ Olf/ Jal Marro. Plus, there is unification of Tplf/ Olf/ pp against Amara in order to give away Welqait to Tigray and give away Nile.

    In the meantime, pp hovernment is misleading information against Fano and the populations Amara as if they are the same with foreiign- based Tplf and Amaras / others working as mercenaries for foreigners against Amara and Tigray therefore pp / olf army is depopulating Amaras as we speak. While Tplf and mercinaries are depopulating Tigrayans. Therefore pp and foreign mercenaries currently inside Amara are working together so that pp /old army has excuse to kill Amaras.
