Ethiopian Leader Says Tigray Blockade Deliberate

According to Simon Marks, a journalist who focuses on the Horn of Africa, Abiy Ahmed, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, has on Friday told UN Secretary-General António Guterres that the blockade on Tigray will continue until after the “TPLF withdrew forces that crossed Tigray’s borders into neighboring states”.

Although humanitarian workers and members of the international media had always known Abiy forces have been deliberately obstructing the delivery of aid to Tigray, prompting them to use the term “de facto blockade,” this is the first time the leader has conceded the blockade is deliberate and that its lifting is conditioned on the “TPLF withdrawing from Afar and Amhara”.

It is not clear what the Secretary General’s response to the Ethiopian leader’s concession of deliberate starvation of millions of Tigrayans was.

    Abiy Ahmad must bring to justice he can’t lead a country he is a criminal layer dangerous for East African

  3. You are already blocked in your thinking

    You are already blocked when you establish ethnic borders. It doesn’t matter if Abiy is there or not. The Amhara will not allow you to cross their border and feed the very enemy they have had in this planet.

    From day one it’s clear that the regime in Addis is committed all the horrendous crime and continue doing it. The international community is babysitting the regime for a long time and partly I believe they will share the responsibility for not doing their part to take strong measures. Tigray has paid its loved kids to control the so called areas and will continue to stay until the regime change. Tigraway lives matter!
