Seb-Hidri Tigray press release on the war on Tigray

What started as a political crisis ended up in one of the bloodiest wars in the world, and the first conventional war in African soil conducted with such a massive scale of high-precision fighter drone missile bombardment. To Tigray, the last 110 Days have been days of mass killings, rampant rapes, disappearances, internal displacement and migration, looting and destruction of health facilities and schools, intentional killing of domestic animals, burning of crops, blockage of humanitarian aid, communication blackout, electricity blackout in most parts of Tigray.

Eritrea’s Pragmatic Terrorism in Tigray

Given the vindictive nature of the Eritrean leader, that the Isaias regime would use any opportunity to inflict heavy damage on Tigray was not unexpected. It is rather the extent of its involvement and the barbaric nature of its troops—their utter depravity, brutality and irreverence—that have caught many by surprise.

That the war on Tigray is over is a myth, Getachew Reda

Whether to save Ethiopia or not remains to be up to the people of Tigray to decide, Getachew believes. “Our agenda right now, above all else, is to free Tigray from the invasion. Once Tigray is free, we will accept what the people of Tigray choose. I don’t have any substantive reason I can present to my supporters and opponents (in Tigray) whether Ethiopia should continue to exist or not,” he said.

A Tigrayan woman speaks truth to lethal power: responding to Ethiopian elders in Mekelle

As far as I am concerned what you are doing now is tantamount to breaking someone’s leg on purpose and then donating a wheelchair to aid with their mobility. Because it’s the same force that you blessed and sent who has come here to massacre us.

A glimpse into the much-hyped food aid distribution in Tigray

‘formal’ humanitarian aid has not reached the millions of people who are in dire need of food aid in Tigray. This has also been confirmed by government officials and humanitarian workers who are operating on the ground. In some towns, people were required to sign that they received more food assistance (grains) than they actually did. Use of starvation as weapon of war was the common thread in many of the testimonies received.

Debretsion’s Statement (Translation)

We are all aware that a genocidal war is being waged against the people of Tigray because they defied the fascistic decree of the clique led by Abiy Ahmed and held democratic elections as an expression of the right to self-administration, to ensure existence and security, for which the Tigrayan people have vigorously fought.

My heart breaks for my beloved Tigray, and my heart starts to hold a grudge. I know this is a feeling that many share, and I am scared that with the grudge, slowly creeps in the need for revenge and hate. I don’t want to see my beloved Tigray destroyed by hate and the need for revenge
