Tigray Emergency Coordination Center Operational Update, 21 July 2023



The update from this week has several missing sections, most notably the nutrition cluster failed to report. Key takeaways are that the food suspension is causing more displacement in Tigray and while the JEOP has completed data collection for new targeting, the WFP is struggling to make progress. The IDPs from Endabaguna have not received any food. 

Highlights from the Update:


  • A draft accessibility map shows that some areas in the Southern and Northwest Zone are considered accessible now, but the supply routes into Tigray are all suspended except for the Semera to Mekelle corridor. 

Food Cluster

  • Food suspension is contributing to more displacement in Tigray and the 37,000 IDPs in Endabaguna have not yet received any food. 
  • Areas of the Tigray are still inaccessible including in the Eastern Zone (Erob, Zala Anbesa, Gulo Mekeda), Central Zone (Egela), and the Northwestern Zone (Dima, Tahtay Adiyabo).
  • There are still informal taxation (shake downs) happening along the routes into Tigray.
  • Reports that a new targeting system is being rolled out. The JEOP appears to have completed data collection in the Central, Eastern, Southeastern, and half of the Southern Zone. WFP is still at phase 1 of 3.
  • Mentions a collective effort to “monitor the situation,” verify unconfirmed death reports, and clarify any misinformation.
  • Reports increased begging observable in major towns, children are being exposed to exploitation while trying to work for food.
  • Notes that malnourished mothers and their babies are at greater risk during childbirth, but it does not provide any information about how this has impacted mothers and babies in Tigray. 
  • Reports that lack of food assistance is a major factor in low school enrollment and attendance.
  • Reports that some farmers are being forced to sell their draught animals and breeding stock for food.
  • Reemphasizes that food assistance and agricultural inputs are urgently needed to facilitate returns of displaced people from agricultural areas in time to plant. 

Agriculture Cluster

  • Only 42% of the total cultivated area in Tigray is planted.
  • Only 19% of fertilizer and 12% of crop seed needed have been received in Tigray.
  • Pest infestations are present in 34 woredas, in most cases there are no chemicals to control.
  • Agricultural inputs are critically needed and in short supply.

Education Cluster

  • School feeding programs have been cut by WFP for summer break, still ongoing in other sites for 7,634 children.
  • Report from visit to Adigrat showed that 3 of 4 schools were still being used to house IDPs. Classes are being held alongside IDP living areas in some cases.

Health Cluster

  • Reports that around 75% of health facilities are reporting now, which is still below the national average, this includes 100% of Southeastern and Mekelle facilities; 99% of Central; 80% of Northwestern; 77% of Eastern; 50% of Southern.
  • Reports major outbreaks of Malaria and Acute Respiratory Tract Infections (believed to be COVID 19); possible measles outbreak in Ofla, Hawzen, Adi-Gudom, Asgeda, Adi-Haki, Shire, Hintalo, and Axum town.
  • Reports Whooping Cough (Pertussis) outbreak in Endamekoni.
  • Reports no Cholera cases. [NB this is alarming due to recent reports of 13,000 cases of cholera and 100 deaths in Tigray]

  1. Taking Action to Safeguard Tigrayan territories and ensuring an early return of all displaced Tigrayans: Moving Beyond Words

    July 29, 2023 at 11:29 am

    It is vital for all Tigrayans to show their dedication to protecting entire land of Tigray against attacks from Fannos and mercenray eritrean army during these trying times. While expressing one’s patriotism is important, it is also crucial to put one’s efforts and zeal into practice rather than relying only on mere words. if peaceful conversation and negotiation remain unyielding , adequate measures should be taken by the ENDF according to the peace agreement .Giving people who occupy Tigrayan territories more time may unintentionally increase their grasp while gradually weakening standing of Tigray . Tigrayan leaders thus act quickly and cooperatively, using diplomatic techniques to retake control in a way that protects the integrity of all land taken by fanno genociders.Fannos are Proxy warriors, instigators and Puppeteers who can’t directly engaging in confrontations, they manipulate situations to trigger conflicts and grab land by genociding children , elders and women . Tegaru may demonstrate their commitment to the cause while also empowering themselves by moving decisively toward resolution. Remembering that deeds speak louder than words will helpTigray to pursue justice with tenacity, which will not only achieve the restoration of Tigrayan territories but also encourage others to support the same cause. Don’t forget that amhara synod members will cooperate with fanno as usual to reclaim and consolidate their ecclesiastical territory, parish church, like abba Diokorios or other, and they will steadfastly provide financial support to fanno to help strengthen their good grasps of western Tigray diocese, which they refer to as part of amhara fandox church territory or property and through which they generate a sizable income. Amhara Church makes significant financial contributions to maintain their revenue stream. Tigrayans are dying every day from hunger and in the hands of enemies and Tigrayan leaders are waiting ENDF to save Tigrayans . How could these be trusted as they were killing Tigrayans for 2 years and some of them are supporters of fanno . These paid soldiers prioritizes their own safety over the well-being of others, displaying a lack of courage, selflessness, and dedication to their duty as a soldier. Their actions betray a mindset driven by self-interest rather than a commitment to protecting and safeguarding those in need. Unless they are working with help of TDF , it will be watching Tigrayans killed in the presence of ENDF. Tigrayans are under heavy presence of armed and unarmed fannos who are constantly smuggled in to western Tigray on a daily basis and showing their satanic tactics which people call demographic engineering. Demographic engineering, population manipulation, or population invasion are terms used to describe the practice of smuggling people into a country in order to change its demographics and perhaps claim territory by individuals or groups from elsewhere. All have to be sent back where they come from!Tigray belongs to Tigrayans.

    Please look for the letter that Abba Diskorios and Abba Abarham sent to the leaders of the Fanno and the Amhara media, as well as to those who support the expansion of Amhara land through slaughter and robbery.

  4. A Law Went Forth From Zion(ህግ ይወፅዕ እም ፅዮን)- Amhara genocidal bishops must resign, including all those Oromo & Tigrayan bishops who still support them

    July 25, 2023 at 11:58 am

    Mahibre Seytan, also known as the Enat Anat Party, is once more crying for the outbreak of violence in the name of a single synod and patriarch. You can’t compel someone to join your demonic organization and take control of its finances; you’re a mafia who wants to pillage every region and every parish church under the guise of one church; etc.

    If you adhere to the concept of one church and one synod, you ought to have put an end to violence against Oromo and Tigray people who belonged to your one church, one synod. Without members, the church cannot exist. Please refrain from trying to preach to us because you are misusing the Bible to advance your personal commercial interests. All those who are crying along with you are either naive individuals or those whose financial interests and sources are in jeopardy as a result of Tegaru’s exit from your satanic, evil synod. It is vital and required that political leaders reconcile because their conditions, norms, and principles cannot be the same as those of religious leaders.

    Dismiss warmonger bishops, monks, and priests who do not want to repent and who covertly approach and misapply biblical verses and canonical laws to further their economic interest. Church leaders are not required by any doctrinal or biblical principles to work with those who worship Satan and are unwilling to repent. You are not devout Christians but mafia members, con artists, and blasphemers instead.
    ወተፈሣሕነ ፡ ህየንተ ፡ መዋዕል ፡ ዘኣሕመምከነ ፤ ወህየንተ ፡ ዐመት ፡ እንተ ፡ ርኢናሃ ፡ ለእኪት (Geʿez ፺:፩፭)
    ኵለን መዓልትታትና ኽንሕጐስን ባህ ኪብለናንሲ፣ ንግሆ ጸጋኻ ኣጽግበና።
    ብመጠን እተን ዘጨነቕካና መዓልትታትን፣ ክፉእ ዝርኤናለን ዓመታትን አሐጕሰና። (መዝሙረ ዳዊት 90:14:15)

    Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.(Psalm 90:15)

    No one needs mahibreseytan and fanno bishops and those who resemble them in their sinful act within the holy Axumite menbere Selama . It is not about politics or anything that you are trying to make it look like but about defending genuine religious tenets and Divine convenant handed down to us from our forefathers.
    We will not allow a traitor, genocidal, American bishop like abba Petros to dictate to us what to do and what not to do. When he obtained a foreign, US, citizenship, he pledged to possess weapons-bear arms .He shouldn’t defile the Christian Holy Cross with his hands full of the blood of innocent Tegaru, kids, priests, nuns, etc.

    Abba Petros gave big yes when asked “”To bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; and To perform noncombatant service in the U.S. armed forces when required by the law.[1]””

  5. Call to flag contents full of hate speech

    July 23, 2023 at 6:01 pm

    Mahibreseytan, Adebabay Media(Ephrem eshete- , Mahber Media- ማህበር ሚዲያ, Beteseb Media /ቤተሰብ are spreading hate speech on their YouTube channels against the people of Tigray and the Menbere Selama Kesate Birhane Orthodox Church of Tigray.

    Mahibre Seytan has a Tigrigna program, and its presenter is named Thomas Hadush (ቶማስ ሓዱሽ ), and the invited guest calls himself Hayle Araya (ሀይለ አርኣያ).

    Adebaby Media also invited Abebe Tesfay, a banda tigraway with the intention of brainwashing Tegaru in Addis or elsewhere, to defame Menbere Selam with a pretext of anti-TPLF rhetoric.

    We also have Bandatat who chose to become traitors, dissenters, and turncoats within the Amhara patriarchate head office in Arat Kilo, such as ንቡረ እድ ኤልያስ(ሆድ አደሮች  )

    Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. Philippians 3:19.

    We encourage  Tegaru  to flag  the content as a hate speech  on youtube  by following the steps below:

    Underneath the “Share” and “Save” options, click on the three vertical dots (⋮) icon.
    A drop-down menu will appear. Select the “Report” option from this menu.
    On the next page, you’ll see a range of options to report the video. Choose the reason that best fits the situation by clicking on it.
    Select the most relevant sub-option from the dropdown menu that describes the issue further, such as “Hateful or abusive content”.

    Once you have reviewed and completed all the necessary details, click on the “Submit” or “Report” button to flag the content as hate speech.

     Do not engage with the individual spreading hate speech. Responding to the hate speech can potentially escalate the situation or give it more visibility.

    Encourage others to report: If you come across hate speech, encourage others who may have seen it to report it as well. The more reports a specific content receives, the higher the chances that the platform will take action against it.

    If you show many of your friends all these simple steps listed above and give them templates to copy and paste on the comment box, or even simply flag the content without writing a request to support your claims, you will be able to stop hate speech and even disable the channel permanently, which has worked so far in some channels like Ethio 360. YouTube might need to receive alerts from different people. By doing so, we can still stop the hate speech that could save the lives of one or even more people.

    Instead of answering back with these thugs, just flag the entire YouTube channel or report that single comment composed of hate speech to YouTube.
