The Ethiopian Embassy in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, came under artillery shelling, as reported by BBC Amharic on Tuesday. This incident occurred on Tuesday morning this week. Yibeltal Aemro, the Ethiopian Ambassador to Sudan, has confirmed to the source that the embassy has been attacked. The building sustained damage, but no human casualties have been reported.

The diplomat disclosed that the extent of the damage is currently under investigation. As of now, the Ethiopian Embassy has not released the results of the ongoing investigation. The embassy is located in the Al-Amarat area of Khartoum.

A diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, revealed that the embassy has been repeatedly attacked over the past several months in connection with the war in the country between the military government of Sudan and the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF). Due to recurring looting and attacks, security staff in the embassy were exposed to danger, and it has been reported that the Ethiopian government is working on evacuating all its staff.

Many diplomatic missions left Khartoum following the outbreak of the war between the two factions. The Ethiopian Embassy has been operating from its consular offices in Gedaref (also known as El-Gadarif).

Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, leader of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), has accused the Sudanese Army of the attack. In a statement released on Twitter on Tuesday, RSF said, “The Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and its extremist allied militias have attacked the Ethiopian Embassy in Khartoum, severely damaging the embassy building located in the area of Al-Amarat.” 

It called the attack on the embassy “barbaric” and alleged that the militia and the Sudanese Armed Forces carried out the attack under General Abdul Fattah al-Burhan’s instruction.

RSF seized the opportunity to convey a political message, stating, “The only true way to maintain security and stability in Sudan and across the region is to eliminate the former regime in its entirety and build a unified national army devoid of any political ideology.”

Both the Sudanese government and Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs have not commented on the incident up to this point.

In addition to the Ethiopian embassy in Khartoum, the embassies of the United Arab Emirates, Russia, and South Africa were also attacked on the same day, according to the report from BBC Amharic.

  1. Subject: “Ethiopian Embassy in Sudan reportedly shelled with heavy artillery” October 4, 2023

    Humble Opinion, 4 Oct 2023
    a) The problem of Africa is looming

    b) At last, Africa is forced to FACE ITSELF and admit her inherent weakness

    c) At last, African Politicians are facing the reality of Africa

    d) It is time for decent, serious, inherent investigations to CLEAN African Continent

    e) But who is going to do that?!?!!?

    f) That is the problem, because Africa can no longer blame “colonialism ” for its own weakness. and shoddy governments.

    g) Well, Dear BLACK AFRICA: WHAT DO YOU SAY ?!?!?!?!?!?

    h) If you ask me, I will say nothing because I feel that “colonialism in different format” is coming back to Africa !!!

    i). How about the good Lord up in Heaven????

    j) He (or She) , is not going to interfere in the affairs of Black Africa , thinking it is hopeless!!!

    k). Curiosity : What happened with the Supremely , Envied, Educated Black Africans , with the Highest Education Level on
    Earth, when it comes to the crucial time to SAVE their Black Africa ??? Perhaps ……………never mind!
    ———THE END ———–

  2. It is very good news that there was no human casualty in this senseless violence. In fact, I am dumb founded that there are still embassies in that war torn mess of a country. My heart goes out to those upright and welcoming citizens of Sudan. It just happens to be that they have been unlucky to never had able and good leaders since independence. You may ask, ‘Who has that in Africa?’ You are right in that observation. One or two may be. When connivers were being created beginning 1960 they were given Africa as their haven. It has been a vicious revolving door since then. In case of Sudan, may be Abboud. He at least relinquished power peacefully and went straight into retirement. He was replaced by a civilian government infested with commies and ran that country to the ground.

    • Breaking News from Paleontological Studio : Cannibalism was a routine funerary practice in Europe about 15,000 years ago, with people eating their dead not out of necessity but rather as part of their culture, according to a new study.

      Thomas Booth, a senior laboratory research scientist at the Francis Crick Institute who was not involved in the study, told CNN Thursday: “We’re missing the remains of most people who lived in Europe during the Palaeolithic and so it can always be tricky to be sure of what people did with their dead.

      “However, this study provides pretty convincing evidence that ritual funerary cannibalism was practiced by people across Europe 20,000-14,000 years ago.”

  3. I can’t resist another Humble Opinion.

    1. Let us leave aside the history of Europe(*) —- the number one enemy of Black Africa

    2. Anyway, let us concentrate on ours .

    3. And ask ourselves why we are always left behind and never learn from our mistakes ????????.

    4. Just observe the action of our blood and flesh African Dictators upon our own RACE !

    5. Please, compere the governance upon Black Africa, by African Dictators and European Hungry Colonizers.

    6. Be the judge upon YOURSELF — and you may attempt to minimize your guilty feelings.

    7. YES, Black Africans were, and still are, vicious dictators upon their own blood and flesh human beings.

    8. THINK ABOUT IT a million times and you will NEVER eradicate your deeply, inherent GUILTY FEELING UPON YOUR

    9. If WE Africans have any SENSE of HUMANITY, the guilty feeling will NEVER , NEVER be out of our system.

    10. Only NATURAL PHENOMENON comes to save us from our guilty feeling — six feet down the the earth.
    ———– THE END—————

    (*). Do we really care about the history of Europe??? Don’t we have enough of SLAVERY upon us by colonial criminals?
