Is the Ethiopian National Defense Forces (ENDF) less involved in atrocities in Tigray?

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.

Recent Stories of the War on Tigray: the Collective Agony Continues

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.

Tigray interim official says 100 billion Birr needed to repair destroyed EFFORT companies in eastern and central Tigray.

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

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 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.
