Dr. Girmay said that as if what has happened to Tigray and Tigrayans is not enough, a time of great and unprecedented scale of death, suffering, and displacement is in the offing as Tigrayans are about to miss the next harvest due to farmers being displaced from their farms, having no seeds, having no oxen for ploughing and having no agricultural inputs and due to lack of peace and normalcy.
After Abiy Ahmed declared war on Tigray, life has not been the same for Tigrayans. There were reports of harassment, discrimination, and abuse of Tigrayans by government officials. Tigrayan top military officers and members of the Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF) were not even spared. All ethnic Tigrayans who were serving ENDF have been disarmed, many of them are detained and unjustly imprisoned since the beginning of the war.
This report is based on reports of military battles and successes as reported by Dimtsi Weyane. The reports are for military battles between March 30, 2021 and April 12. According…
Gathering the massacres committed by the ENDFs may remind us of the scope of the human suffering, the scale of the war and the depth of the malevolence (ca.'Choose - I kill you or rape you') of the ENDFs and the ingenuity and mercilessness (ca.'save yourselves') of their evil acts. Any particular case of massacre or rape or other war crimes that you encounter on the media is only a part, a small one, of a carnage that has lasted for five months.

One of the weapons Abiy Ahmed is lies, grandiose lies. (I call him homo mendacious for the same reason). The following excerpt debunks one of his biggest and most frequently told lies: That the war started because TPLF attacked the Northern Command. The truth is that Abiy and his mentor, Isaias, the architect of the war, had long planned it.
This is not about getting rid of TPLF or capturing some clique. This war had no discipline. It has created insurmountable social and economical issues for the foreseeable future for the people of Tigray. It has caused serious insecurity in the region. Tigrayans are abused and suffering. Churches are burning. Women and young girls are being raped. Improper house checks and raids. All types of machinery, cars and many other properties of Tigray have been looted and taken out of the country’s border, some are taken to central Ethiopia
The Ethiopian Orthodox Church based in Addis Abeba and its followers have been behind the war on Tigray. On 17 November, the patriarchate convened in response to Abiy Ahmed's call for all sections f society to support his war on Tigray.
Engineer Alula Habteab, Head of the Bureau of Construction, Road and Tarsport in the by-Abiy-Ahmed-installed puppet interim administration of Tigray says, in a press briefing, that Ethiopian Defence Forces, Eritrean Defence Forces and Amhara Forces have completely destroyed Tigray's 30-year development work.
