Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 20, 2021

አንድ የኦርቶዶክስ ቄስ በታህሳስ ወር ከኢትዮጵያ ጋር በሚያዋስነው በሱዳን በሚገኘው ቤተክርስቲያኑ ፊት ለፊት ይሰብካሉ

👉 ፋሺስቶቹ አብዮት አህመድ አሊ እና ኢሳያስ አፈቆርኪ ከአረብ ረዳቶቻቸው ጋር በማበር፤

የአንበጣ መንጋን ተገን አድርገው

ዝናብና ብርድ የሚቆምበትን ወር ጠብቀው

የሰብል ምርት የሚሰበሰብበት የመኸር ወቅትን ጠብቀው

በአሜሪካ የፕሬዚደንት ምርጫ የሚደረግበትን ዕለትን ጠብቀው

ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ ሚስቱን እና ልጆቹን ወደ አሜሪካ ከላከ በኋላ

በምስኪኑ የትግራይ ሕዝብ ላይ በፌስቡክ ጦርነት አወጁበት። ምን ዓይነት ቆሻሻ፣ አረመኔና ዲያብሎሳዊ ቢሆኑ ነው? እነዚህ አውሬዎች ያሉበት ቦታ ሄዶ የሚቆራርጣቸው አንድ ጀግና እንዴት ይጥፋ? የወታደራዊ ሥራ ልድምዱ ያላቸው ሕወሀቶች እንደ እስራኤሉ ሞሳድ ጠራጊና ደፊ ኮማንዶ በአዲስ አበባ ሳያዘጋጁ እንዴት ወጡ? ይህ የብዙ ወገኖችን  ሕይወት ሊያተርፍ የሚችል ኮማንዶ ሊሆን ይችል ነበር።

Just when people were harvesting crops in early November, the federal army launched an offensive against forces of the former local ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), whom it accused of insurrection.

Thousands died and more than 300,000 fled their homes during battles and air-strikes, creating a humanitarian crisis in the already poor region of about 5 million people.

The people are terrified, they have suffered a lot,” Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) emergency programme head Mari Carmen Vinoles told Reuters as the medical charity made first forays into rural areas near towns including Adrigat and Axum.

MSF said there was barely any healthcare provision beyond Mekelle and a handful of towns, meaning people were dying without life-saving help for conditions such as pneumonia or childbirth complications.

In Adigrat, MSF found doctors and nurses struggling to keep “hungry patients” alive, Vinoles said. The main hospital’s ambulances had been stolen.

Every time we reach a new area, we find food, water, health services depleted, and a lot of fear among the population. Everybody is asking for food,” she added.


The United Nations’ children’s agency UNICEF said on Monday that malnutrition was the leading cause of death in clinics in the town of Shire, where the situation was particularly grave.
