War in Ethiopia expands to Sudan border – New Business Ethiopia

The ongoing war between the national defense for of Ethiopia and the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) has expanded its area to the western front around Wolqait and Ethiopia – Sudan border.

“The TPLF clique, which can not survive without war, has launched an invasion in the direction of Wag, Wolqait, and our border areas with Sudan (Amhara region). Our heroic national defense force are defending this invasion with full preparedness and resolve,” said Government Communication Service of Ethiopia in its statement released an hour ago.

The statement recalled that the Government of Ethiopia has been “valiantly defending the attacks launched by the TPLF via Eastern Amhara.” “The TPLF has continued utilizing its worn-out human wave strategy that places children, youth and the elderly people of Tigray as sacrificial lambs,” the statement said.

It is recall that fighting between the sides has been taking place in the areas around Kobo and Zoble mountain, among other places, for the past few days. Videos released by TPLF a few day ago show that the Front is using child soldier carrying guns and marching towards the war front.

Despite the fact that the act is against international and domestic laws, no international media, human rights organizations or UN agencies has yet to react to the video footage showing child soldiers by TPLF.

“TheInvasion of Kobo and the surrounding areas by the TPLF on the Eastern side of the Amhara region has not gone as the group planned; due to the concerted response effort of our heroic defense forces and the local communities. It has rather expanded its belligerence in other areas,” said the Ethiopian Government in its statement.

“The Government of Ethiopia while responding steadfastly to attacks launched by TPLF in various directions, has still not closed off the option for peace,” it said.

“We continue to urge the international community to do what it can to pressure the belligerent group for a peaceful resolution of the conflict. We call on the people of Tigray, who are our people, to free themselves from the suffering caused by the tyranny of TPLF and condemn the belligerence,” the Ethiopian Government statement noted.

This is the culmination of cruelty by the group, which deserves the wrath from every human-loving group in the Globe. #DisarmTPLF #childrennotsoldiers #TplfIsWarCriminal @hrw @unicefchief @UNICEFEthiopia pic.twitter.com/k8YYAgfY3z
