Air Strikes by The Fascist Oromo Regime of Ethiopia Kill 108 Civilians In Tigray

💭 An accelerating wave of Ethiopian air strikes in Tigray region has killed a reported 108 civilians, jeopardizing fragile peace talks and further damaging an emergency aid effort that is already on the verge of ending because of blocked supplies.

Western leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have been pushing for humanitarian aid and peace negotiations to end the 14-month-old war in northern Ethiopia that has killed tens of thousands of people. But the latest volley of air strikes and the rising civilian death toll have angered Tigrayan leaders and hampered the aid effort.

The United Nations human rights office, in a statement on Friday, said the air strikes could constitute a war crime if the perpetrators had not verified whether the targets were military objectives.

“We are alarmed by the multiple, deeply disturbing reports we continue to receive of civilian casualties and destruction of civilian objects resulting from air strikes in Ethiopia’s Tigray region,” said Liz Throssell, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

She cited reports that the air strikes have killed 108 civilians and injured 75 in the past two weeks. The air strikes have reportedly hit a refugee camp, a training institute, a flour mill, an airport, a private minibus and a camp for internally displaced people.

The deadliest strike was last Friday at the Dedebit camp for displaced people, killing at least 59 people and injuring dozens of others. Another strike, on Monday, caused devastation at a mill where farmers had gathered to grind their grains into flour. The air strikes are believed to be inflicted by Turkish, Chinese and Iranian drones, imported by Ethiopia’s military in recent months.

Fisseha Tekle, an Ethiopia researcher for Amnesty International, told The Globe and Mail that the warring parties must “stop indiscriminate attacks” that hit civilians and civilian infrastructure. He called on the Ethiopian government to allow access for international and independent investigations of the air strikes.

Last week, as Ethiopia celebrated Orthodox Christmas, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced the release of several imprisoned opposition leaders, including some from the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). He called for an “all-inclusive national dialogue” and a peaceful solution to Ethiopia’s problems.

But the air strikes have undermined the prospects for peace. A spokesman for the TPLF, Getachew Reda, tweeted last week that the Prime Minister’s rhetoric about peace was contradicted by “his daily routine of denying medication to helpless children and sending drones targeting civilians.”

This week, Mr. Getachew noted that a drone strike had hit Tigray just minutes after the departure of the African Union’s diplomatic envoy, former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo, who had been discussing peace measures with Tigrayan leaders in the regional capital Mekelle.

Mr. Trudeau, in a quiet diplomatic campaign, has held repeated telephone talks with Mr. Abiy and other leaders in the Horn of Africa in recent weeks, including a conversation with Mr. Obasanjo on Thursday. His office said he had welcomed the envoy’s efforts, but “expressed concern over challenges in ensuring unhindered access to and delivery of humanitarian assistance for those affected by the conflict.”

The drone strikes are another obstacle to the desperately needed supply of aid in Tigray, where the UN estimates that 90 per cent of the population needs emergency assistance. Some aid agencies have already been forced to suspend operations in the area where the air strike hit the displaced people’s camp, because of the continuing threat of further drone attacks, the UN says.

Many humanitarian workers have been killed since the beginning of the Tigray conflict in November 2020. One aid agency, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), says it is still trying to understand how three of its staff workers were killed in an apparent execution in Tigray last June. The three bodies were found within 400 metres of their well-marked MSF car and “their injuries showed that each suffered multiple close-range gunshot wounds,” the agency said in a statement this week.

This shows that the attack was an intentional killing, MSF said. It said it has asked the Ethiopian and Tigrayan authorities to provide information about the presence of their armed forces in the area at the time, but it is still awaiting answers.

A major UN agency, the World Food Programme, warned on Friday that its food assistance in northern Tigray is “about to grind to a halt” because intense fighting has blocked the transport of fuel and food.

No convoys of WFP aid have reached Mekelle since mid-December, the agency said. Stocks of nutritionally fortified food for malnourished children and women are now exhausted, and the last of its cereals, pulses and oil will be distributed next week, it said.

“We’re now having to choose who goes hungry to prevent another from starving,” said WFP Eastern Africa director Michael Dunford in a statement. “We’re on the edge of a humanitarian disaster.”

Across northern Ethiopia, the WFP estimates that 9.4 million people need humanitarian food assistance – the highest number recorded so far, and an increase of 2.7 million in the past four months.

The World Health Organization’s director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who is himself from Tigray, said this week that the Ethiopian government is denying food and medicine to its own people in the region.

“Nowhere in the world are we witnessing hell like in Tigray,” he told reporters. “Imagine a complete blockade of seven million people for more than a year. And there is no food. There is no medication, no medicine. No electricity. No telecom. No media.”

After his comments, the Ethiopian government said it had sent a letter of complaint to the WHO, accusing Dr. Tedros of “misconduct” and interference in Ethiopia’s internal affairs.

Other WHO officials, however, have made similar comments to those of Dr. Tedros. The agency’s director of emergencies, Michael Ryan, said this week that the lack of access to basic medicine in Tigray is “an insult to our humanity.” He warned of “catastrophic, imminent health consequences.”

Air Strike Of The Fascist Oromo Regime of Ethiopia in Tigray Killed 56 People,Including Many Children

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 8, 2022

💭 የፋሽስቱ ኦሮሞ አገዛዝ በትግራይ ባካሄደው የአየር ጥቃት በርካታ ህጻናትን ጨምሮ ፶፮/56 ሰዎች ተገድለዋል።

😈 አረመኔው አብዮት አህመድ አሊ ቶሎ ካልተደፋ ግፉና ውንጀሉ ይቀጥላል! ግራኝ ዛሬውኑ ይደፋ!🔥

At least 56 people have been killed in an air strike at a camp for internally displaced people in Ethiopia’s northern region of Tigray, according to Reuters.

There were at least 30 others injured, two aid workers told the news agency, citing local authorities and eyewitness accounts.

The workers sent Reuters pictures of people wounded in hospital, including many children,

The government has been accused of targeting civilians in the 14-month conflict with rebellious Tigrayan forces – which it has previously denied.

Military spokesman Colonel Getnet Adane and government spokesman Legesse Tulu did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The aid workers, who asked not to be named because they did not have permission to speak to the press, said the number of casualties was confirmed by local authorities.

The camp that was hit by the strike is in the town of Daedaebeet in the northwest of the region, near the border with Eritrea, they said.

Joe Biden Must Hold Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed Ali Accountable | Bloomberg

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2022

💭A Nobel Peace Prize should not shield the prime minister from sanctions for war crimes and rights abuses.

👉 Courtesy: Bloomberg

Could Joe Biden become the first American president to sanction a Nobel Peace Prize winner for war crimes and human-rights abuses? As the U.S. steps up efforts to end Ethiopia’s bloody civil war, it must reckon with credible reports that the government of the 2019 laureate Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed instigated the conflict and covered up gross abuses.

Biden’s envoy for the Horn of Africa, Jeffrey Feltman, arrives in Addis Ababa today to advocate peace talks between the Ethiopian government and rebels in the northern region of Tigray. Now in its second year, the war has claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions. It is in a stalemate, with Abiy at a slight advantage: His federal forces have regained territory lost in early November but are unable to make headway into Tigray. The rebel leadership claims to have made a strategic retreat and has indicated a willingness to hold peace talks.

Abiy has ramped up air strikes, using drones acquired from Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, which have killed scores of Tigrayans. A land offensive would be much bloodier, for both sides. But the prime minister will likely want a thrust deep into Tigray before agreeing to any meaningful parleys. For one thing, this would give him the upper hand in any negotiations. For another, having portrayed himself as a military leader — in the time-honored fashion, he visited the frontlines dressed in fatigues — he needs something that at least looks like a victory.

Feltman’s first order of business should be to restrain Abiy. The prime minister has thus far been immune to persuasion and to punitive economic measures, such as the suspension of European aid and the blocking of duty-free access to the U.S. market. But these, in effect, punish all Ethiopians for the actions of their leaders.

More targeted measures are called for. Biden has threatened to use sanctions to end the fighting, but has only imposed them on the third party to the conflict — the government of neighboring Eritrea, which entered the civil war on Abiy’s side. It is time to call out and sanction Ethiopians, on both the Tigrayan and government sides, who have enabled or committed crimes and abuses.

Despite the hurdles put up by the government, human rights agencies and humanitarian groups have been tabulating offenses by all combatants. Even as officials in Addis Ababa talk up war crimes ascribed to the rebels, they have suppressed information of wrongdoing — including mass rape and the recruitment of child fighters — by government forces and allied militias. Fislan Abdi, the minister Abiy tasked to document abuses, told the Washington Post last week that she was told to sweep inconvenient facts under the carpet. She resigned.

That brings up the question of Abiy’s culpability. His government claims the rebels sparked the civil war when they attacked a military base, but it is now becoming clear that the prime minister had been preparing an assault on the northern region long before then. As the New York Times has reported, Abiy plotted with the Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki against the Tigrayans even as the two leaders negotiated an end to decades of enmity between their countries in 2018 — the deal that won Abiy his Nobel.

The prime minister was apparently counting on the Peace Prize to draw attention away from the preparations that he and Isais were making for war against their common enemy: the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. Although the Tigrayans are a minority in multiethnic Ethiopia, the TPLF ran the government for the best part of three decades before Abiy’s accession to power. The Eritreans blame the TPLF for the war between the countries. Abiy is from the Oromo, the largest ethnic group, which was long denied a fair share of power by the Tigrayans.

Since he became prime minister, Abiy has systematically marginalized Tigrayans in the central government. The civil war has provided cover for crimes by government officials and forces. In the most recent example, says Human Rights Watch, thousands of Tigrayans repatriated from Saudi Arabia have been subjected to abuses ranging from arbitrary detention to forcible disappearance.

Abiy is hardly the first Nobel laureate to have brought dishonor to the prize. But, for obvious reasons, American presidents are leery about deploying sanctions against those who have been ennobled as peacemakers.

George W. Bush considered sanctioning Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, joint winner in 1994, but eventually thought better of it. For all his recklessness, Donald Trump could not bring himself to sanction Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi, winner in 1991, for her government’s gruesome treatment of the Rohingya minority, and targeted only the country’s military commanders. (Ironically, those same commanders would go on to overthrow the civilian government and imprison Suu Kyi.)

Biden might do well to follow Trump’s example and target senior Ethiopian officials while giving Abiy a Nobel pass. Still, if the prime minister doesn’t take heed, he may well find himself in an ignoble category all of his own.

💭 Saudi Arabia Should Stop Deporting Tigrayan Migrants to Ethiopia

Thousands of ethnic Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia have been detained, abused or forcibly disappeared after arriving back home in Ethiopia, Human Rights Watch said in a new report Wednesday.

The ethnic profiling and mistreatment of returnees detailed by HRW took place as the federal government fought Tigrayan rebels in a grinding year-long war that has cost thousands of lives and pushed many more people into famine.

Tigrayans repatriated from Saudi Arabia, where hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians have migrated to seek work over the years, were singled out and held in Addis Ababa and elsewhere against their will upon returning, HRW said.

Others were prevented from returning to Tigray, the northernmost region of Ethiopia, after being identified at roadside checkpoints or airports and transferred to detention facilities, the report said.

“Ethiopian authorities are persecuting Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia by wrongfully detaining and forcibly disappearing them,” said Nadia Hardman, refugee and migrants rights researcher at HRW.

The rights watchdog interviewed Tigrayans deported from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia between December 2020 and September 2021, during which tens of thousands were repatriated under an agreement between the two countries.

Some of the Tigrayan deportees detained after arriving in Ethiopia reported suffering physical abuse, including beatings with rubber or wooden rods.

Others were accused of colluding with the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which ran Tigray before the start of the war, and is now considered a terrorist group by Addis Ababa.

Two deportees told HRW they were taken with other men from migrants centres by police and bused to coffee farms, where they were put to work in terrible conditions for no pay and little food.

Many were denied contact with family, and feared their relatives thought they were still in Saudi Arabia.

“The Ethiopian authorities’ detention of thousands of Tigrayan deportees from Saudi Arabia without informing their families of their arrest or whereabouts amounts to enforced disappearance, which also violates international law,” the report said.

In late 2021 the United States and its allies called on Ethiopia to stop unlawfully detaining its citizens on ethnic grounds under a wartime state of emergency declared in November.

Ethiopia’s own state-affiliated rights watchdog estimated that thousands had been caught up in sweeps that appears to target Tigrayans on their ethnicity alone.

Strip Evil Abiy Ahmed of the Nobel Peace Prize & Give it to The Brave Filsan Abdi

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 31, 2021

👉 ገብርኤል 👉 ማርያም 😇 ኡራኤል 👉ጊዮርጊስ 👉ተክለ ሐይማኖት 👉 ዮሴፍ 👉 መድኃኔ ዓለም

😈 Shame on you, callous President Sahelework Zewde!

😈 Shame on you, ignorant minister Dr. Liya Tadesse!

😈 Shame on you, traitor Journalist Hermela Aregawi!

😈 Shame on you, the heathen Bishop Abune Ermias

👉 Look at Filsan, Y’ALL!

She Was in Abiy Ahmed’s Cabinet as War Broke Out. Now She Wants to Set The Record Straight.

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed took a sizable risk when he chose her as the youngest minister in his cabinet: Filsan Abdi was an outspoken activist from the country’s marginalized Somali community with no government experience. She was just 28.

Like so many, she was drawn by Abiy’s pledges to build a new Ethiopia, free of the bloody ethnic rifts of the past — overtures that built Abiy’s global reputation as an honest broker and helped win him a Nobel Peace Prize.

Then the opposite happened.

Less than a year into her tenure, Ethiopia was spiraling into an ethnically tinged civil war that would engulf the northern part of the country — Africa’s second most populous — and as the head of the ministry overseeing women’s and children’s issues, Filsan found herself tasked with documenting some of the war’s most horrific aspects: mass rapes by uniformed men and the recruitment of child soldiers.

In September, she became the only cabinet minister to resign over Abiy’s handling of the war.

This week, Filsan, now 30, broke her public silence in a lengthy, exclusive interview with The Washington Post, in which she told of cabinet discussions in the lead-up to the war, official efforts to suppress her ministry’s findings about abuses by the government and its allies, and the resurgent ethnic divisions fracturing the country.

A spokeswoman for Abiy declined to comment on Filsan’s recollections.

“The war has polarized the country so deeply that I know many people will label me as a liar simply because I say the government has also done painful, horrible things,” Filsan said. “I am not saying it was only them. But I was there. I was in cabinet meetings, and I went and met victims. Who can tell me what I did and did not see?”

Disputed story lines

In the 14 months since Ethiopia’s war began, the world has largely relied on the scant access the government has granted to a handful of journalists and humanitarians for any kind of independent reporting. Tigray, Ethiopia’s northernmost region, where the war had been contained until June, has been subjected to a near-total communications blockade since fighting began in November 2020.

In the information vacuum, a propaganda war has flourished alongside the very real fighting that has claimed thousands of lives, and even the most basic story lines of the war are hotly contested.

Who started it? Who carried out the atrocities — massacres, summary executions, intentional starvation, mass rapes, hospital lootings, the arming of children — that people from across northern Ethiopia have recounted, either in their ransacked villages or in refugee camps? Is ethnic cleansing underway? Is Ethiopia’s government winning or losing the war?

In January, Abiy prematurely answered the last question by declaring the war over. He brought a group of ministers including Filsan to Tigray’s capital, Mekelle, which government troops had taken over from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, a well-armed regional political party resented elsewhere in Ethiopia for its outsize role in the repressive government that ran the country for three decades before Abiy’s ascendance.

Abiy accuses the TPLF of instigating the war with an attack on a military base, in which Tigrayan soldiers killed scores of non-Tigrayan soldiers. TPLF leaders say they were defending themselves. In any case, the conflict quickly metastasized, drawing in ethnic militias and the army of neighboring Eritrea.

In Tigray, Filsan was told to create a task force that would investigate widespread claims of rape and recruitment of child soldiers.

“We brought back the most painful stories, and every side was implicated,” she recalled. “But when I wanted to release our findings, I was told that I was crossing a line. ‘You can’t do that,’ is what an official very high up in Abiy’s office called and told me. And I said, ‘You asked me to find the truth, not to do a propaganda operation. I am not trying to bring down the government — there is a huge rape crisis for God’s sake. Child soldiers are being recruited by both sides. I have the evidence on my desk in front of me.’ ”

Filsan said she was told to revise the report to say that only TPLF-aligned fighters had committed crimes. And when her subordinates at the ministry wouldn’t release the full report, she chose to tweet that “rape has taken place conclusively and without a doubt” in Tigray.

Since then, even her childhood friends have shied away from being seen with her, fearful of the association. Colleagues in the ministry referred to her as a “protector of Tigrayans,” she said — implying that she was a traitor.

The task force’s conclusions have since been echoed by a slew of reports by human rights organizations, which have done interviews either with refugees or by phone because of access restrictions. A joint report written by the United Nations and Ethiopia’s state-appointed human rights agencies also found evidence that all sides in the war had “committed violations of international human rights, humanitarian and refugee law, some of which may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

Widespread allegations of crimes committed by Tigrayan rebels have piled up since June, when the force surged south into the neighboring Amhara and Afar regions, pushing back government troops and aligned militias and displacing hundreds of thousands of civilians. The five-month onslaught was recently reversed when the rebels retreated to within the borders of Tigray.

Filsan argues that the Ethiopian government could have avoided the wave of revenge rapes and massacres of the past months.

“If there had been accountability for the rapes that took place in Tigray, do you think so many rapes would have happened in Amhara and Afar? No,” she said. “Justice helps stop the cycle. But both sides felt they could just get away with it.”

Yes, I know the pain, too’

As the pendulum of momentum swings back and forth in the war, and a total victory seems more and more elusive, Abiy’s tone has shifted from the relatively straightforward anti-insurgency rhetoric of late last year to calling the war an existential battle against a “cancer” that has grown in the country.

In his and other official statements, the line between the stated enemy — the TPLF — and Tigrayans in general has increasingly blurred. And under a state of emergency imposed in November, Tigrayans around the country allege, thousands of their community members have been arbitrarily detained. Tigrayans crossing the border into Sudan recently recounted fleeing a final stage of what they say is ethnic cleansing in an area of Tigray claimed by the Amhara people.

Filsan recalled that before she resigned, she had been told first by a high-ranking official in Abiy’s Prosperity Party and then by an official in his personal office that all Tigrayans on her staff — and at other ministries, too — were to be placed on leave immediately.

“I said, ‘I won’t do it unless the prime minister calls me himself, or you put it in writing,’ ” she said, adding that subordinates of hers enforced the order anyway. “Many Ethiopians are lying to themselves. They deny that an ethnic element has become a major part of this war. They have stopped seeing the difference between Tigrayan people and the TPLF, even if many Tigrayans don’t support the TPLF.”

When she resigned in September, Abiy told her to postpone her decision for six months, claiming that the war was nearing its conclusion. But by then, she had lost trust in him. Even before the war, in cabinet meetings, Abiy had repeatedly implied that a conflict was coming and that the TPLF would be to blame for it, Filsan said. But she felt that peace had never really been given a chance, and that Abiy seemed to relish the idea of eliminating the TPLF, even though crushing dissent through brute force was a page right out of the TPLF’s playbook.

“It’s now been 100 days since the day we met, and it has only gotten worse. I knew it then, I knew it before then, and I know it now: He’s in denial, he’s delusional. His leadership is failing,” said Filsan.

The feeling that she was being drawn into the same ideology of ethnic domination that the TPLF had espoused when it presided over the country was hard to shake. As a Somali, she came from a community that had been trampled during those decades, and earlier, too, under communists and kings alike. Uncles of hers had been dragged from their beds and beaten; women she knew had to wear diapers after having been raped by soldiers; children were taught to kneel and put their hands up if confronted by a man in uniform.

“So, yes, I know the pain, too, I know the reasons people want revenge. But if we don’t back away from it, we are doomed,” she said. “One day we will wake up from this nightmare and have to ask ourselves: How will we live with the choices we made?”

Smyrna Catastrophe: Genocide of Greeks in Antichrist Turkey/ Asia Minor

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 20, 2021

💭 The Destruction of Smyrna: How The Turks Ended The Greek Presence in Their Territory by Burning a City

💭 ቱርኮች የግሪኮች ከተማ የነበረችውን ስሚርኔስ/ኢዝሚርን በእሳት አቃጠሏት፤ ከዚያ ግሪኮች ቱርክን ለቅቀው ወደ ግሪክ ተሰደዱ

ኦሮሞዎችም በሻሸመኔ፣ አጣዬ፣ ትግራይ ወዘተ ተመሳሳይ ወንጀል በመፈጸምና ክርስቲያኖችን በማፈናቀል ላይ ናቸው !

This year marks 99 years since the Catastrophe of Smyrna, the modern-day city of Izmir on the Turkish coast of the Aegean Sea, when Greeks were forced to flee the city due to a fire set by Turkish forces.

It was a cataclysmic event of such enormous importance for modern Greek history that it shaped generation upon generation after 1922, adding yet another unforgettable —and unutterably tragic — milestone to Greece’s long history.

Great Fire cause the Catastrophe of Smyrna

A terrifying blaze, called the Great Fire, destroyed much of the city, causing the majority of Greeks in Asia Minor to flee their homes and seek shelter primarily in Greece, but also in other countries.

Historians of the time period, taking countless eye witness and written accounts of the event, have agreed that Turkish mobs set the Greek section of the city on fire.

Turkey continues to deny this, claiming that it was Armenians, or even Greeks themselves, who set the city ablaze.

Smyrna was undoubtedly one of the wealthiest cities, not only in the Ottoman Empire, but anywhere Europe.

It was home to one of the largest populations of Greeks and Armenians in the Empire.

Together, they constituted the Christian community of the city, which lived peacefully side by side with the Muslim and the Jewish communities for centuries.

However, politics, and the competing interests of the main global powers, alongside the rising tide of nationalism and the outbreak of the First World War, were the factors that determined the fate of Smyrna and its citizens for the rest of the twentieth century and beyond.

As part of the Greco-Turkish War, which raged from 1919 to 1922, Greece’s armed forces went to Smyrna on May 15, 1919.

After major military and political errors made by the Greek government, the Turkish army regained control of the city on September 9, 1922.

Christian populations in Asia Minor in dangerous position

The future for the Christian population of Greeks and Armenians was perilous.

After a series of catastrophic events, the majority of them would end up dead as part of the Greek Genocide, which actually began with a series of confrontations in 1914 and would last until 1923.

Eyewitness reports state that the great fire of Smyrna began on September 13, 1922, and lasted for approximately nine full days, until September 22.

The fire’s results were catastrophic — the entire Greek and Armenian quarters of the city were completely wiped off the map.

Churches, ornate villas, and mansions of great architectural importance, as well as schools and entire market areas, were gone forever, without a trace.

Catastrophe of Smyrna has lasting impact

Official data about the number of the victims of the Smyrna Catastrophe and Greek genocide does not exist.

Experts believe that the number of victims lands somewhere between 10,000 and 100,000, while the number of refugees who were forced to leave Asia Minor numbered in the millions.

The city suffered such enormous damage to its infrastructure that much of it literally had to be rebuilt from the ashes.

But the Greek neighborhoods, which had the most beautiful homes, churches and other buildings — the entire 40 hectares of what was once the most elegant part of the city, and then became a hellish inferno — has no buildings whatsoever on it.

Today the area is an enormous park, known as Kültürpark in Turkish, which serves as Turkey’s largest open-air exhibition center.

There are no reminders there of the glory which once was Smyrna.

14 መስከረም፤ በቱርክ ግዛት በአናሳዋ እስያ የግሪኮች የዘር ማጥፋት ወንጀል የመታሰቢያ ቀን

የግሪክ ጭፍጨፋ1922. ታላቁ የሰምርኔስ እሳት በመስመር 1922 አብዛኛው የሰምርኔስ ከተማ (ዘመናዊው İzmir) የወደብ ከተማን ያጠፋ እሳት ነበር።

የዘመኑ የግሪክ ታሪክ ከሚያሳዝኑ በዓላት አንዱ በወታደራዊ ሽንፈት እና በመቶ ሺዎች የሚቆጠሩ ግሪኮችን ከትንሽ እስያ መነቃቃቱ ምክንያት የሆነው ትንሹ እስያ ግንባር መውደቁ ነው።

የነሐሴመስከረም 1922 ታሪካዊ ክስተቶች “ትንሹ እስያ አደጋ” በሚል ርዕስ ሙሉ በሙሉ ተመዝግበዋል።

1922 ሽንፈት ከ 1453 ጋር ሊወዳደር ይችላል እና በአይዮኒክ ምድር ውስጥ ለረጅም ጊዜ የቆየውን የግሪክ ማህበረሰብን ከሥሩ ነቅሎ ስለሄደ እንደ ትልቅ ሊቆጠር ይችላል።

በቱርክ ግዛት በአናሳዋ እስያ ግሪኮች የዘር ማጥፋት ወንጀል ብሔራዊ የመታሰቢያ ቀን መስከረም 24 ቀን 1998 በግሪክ ፓርላማ በአንድ ድምፅ ውሳኔ የተቋቋመ ሲሆን በየዓመቱ መስከረም 14 ቀን ይከበራል።

የአናሳዋ እስያ ድብቅ ውበት ወደ እናት ሀገር ግሪክ ለማዛወር የቻሉት አንድ ሚሊዮን ፣ 1.5 ሚሊዮን ስደተኞች!

እውነታዎች

እሳቱ በተነሳበት ቀን አመሻሹ ላይ ፣ ከሃቲስታሞው ጎዳና ጎን ለጎን ከሚገኘው ቤቴ ወጥቼ ፣ ምን እየሆነ እንዳለ ለማወቅ ወደዚህ ጎዳና ሄድኩ።

እሳቱ ወደዚህ ወረዳ ገና እንዳልተስፋፋ ልብ ሊባል ይገባል። እዚያ ከሁለት መቶ እስከ ሦስት መቶ የታጠቁ ቱርኮች ቡድን አገኘሁ። ፈረንሳዊ መሆኔን ከነገርኳቸው በኋላ ምን እንደሚፈልጉ ጠየኳቸው።

በሰፈሩ ውስጥ ያሉትን ቤቶች ለማፈንዳት እና ለማቃጠል መመሪያ እንዳላቸው መለሱልኝ። ከዚያ እነሱን ለማሳመን ሞከርኩ ፣ እነሱ ግን ‘ፋይዳ የለውም ፣ ሂድ!’ ብለው መለሱልኝ። እና በእርግጥ ከቤቴ እንደወጣሁ ብዙም ሳይቆይ ተቀጣጣይ ቦምቦች መውደቅ ጀመሩ። ጁበርት ፣ የዓይን ምስክር ፣ የፈረንሣይ ባንክ ጸሐፊ።

ይህ ጥፋት የተጀመረው የመጨረሻው የግሪክ ወታደራዊ ክፍል ከትንሽ እስያ ከተነሳ እና የቱርክ ጦር ከገባ በኋላ ሙስጠፋ ከማል እራሱ እና በከተማው ውስጥ የማይለወጡ ናቸው።

በቱርኮች ከተከበቡ በኋላ ሴቶቹ እና ሕፃናት መጠጊያ የወሰዱበትን የቅዱስ ኒኮላስ የአርመን ቤተ ክርስቲያን ፍንዳታ ተከትሎ እሳቱ መጀመሪያ በአርሜኒያ ሰፈር ውስጥ ተቀሰቀሰ።

ግሪኮች ወደ ቤተክርስቲያኑ ገብተው ለተከበቡት ውሃ እና ምግብ ሰጡ ፣ ነገር ግን በጣም ብዙ ቱርኮች በፍጥነት ተሰብስበው እንደገና ቤተክርስቲያኑን ከበቡ እና አፈነዱት።

ለቱርኮች (በቱርክ ሰፈር በማፈንዳት) እና ቱርኮች ቤቶችን በመርጨት ቤንዚን በሚመች ነፋስ እርዳታ እሳቱ ከሙስሊም እና ከአይሁድ ሰፈር በስተቀር ከተማውን በሙሉ አቃጠለ እና ከ 13 እስከ መስከረም 17 ቀን 1922 ድረስ ይቆያል። (በጁሊያን የቀን አቆጣጠር መሠረት ከነሐሴ 31 እስከ መስከረም 4)

ምን ሆነ

የወቅቱ የአንደኛው ጦር አዛዥ አዛዥ ፣ ሌተና ጄኔራል ኒኮላዎስ ትሪኮፒስ ፣ እና የግሪክ የጉዞ ኃይል ከአፍዮንካራሳይሳር (በነሐሴ ወር 1922 አጋማሽ) ኃላፊነት የነበረው ግንባሩ ከወደቀ በኋላ እ... አብዛኛው የክርስትያን ሕዝብ (ግሪኮች እና አርሜኒያውያን) ወደ ትንሹ እስያ የባህር ዳርቻ በመነሳት ፣ ይህም በኢኩሜናዊ ፓትርያርክ ግምቶች መሠረት 250,000 ደርሷል።

እንዲሁም በሰምርኔስ ውስጥ በተለያዩ የአርሜኒያ ማህበረሰብ ተቋማት እና ቤቶች ውስጥ የተሰበሰቡ 15,000 አርመናውያን መጠለያ አግኝተዋል።

ሆኖም ወታደራዊ ቅሪቶችን እና ስደተኞችን (በቀን 30,000 ይገመታል) ወደ ሰምርኔስ ተሸክመው ባቡሮች ያለማቋረጥ መምጣታቸው ፣ እንዲሁም ስለ ግንባሩ አጠቃላይ ውድቀት ጠንካራ ወሬዎች የግሪክን ህዝብ ጥንካሬ እና ስጋት ጨምረዋል ፣ የግሪክ አስተዳደር ለ መነሳት ከእንግዲህ ስለ ቀጣዩ ልማት ትንሽ ጥርጣሬዎችን አይተውም።

የግሪኩ ከፍተኛ ኮሚሽነር አሪስቲድስ ስቴርጊዲስ ለቀድሞው የሌስቮስ ጠቅላይ ግዛት እና ለቺዮስ ጆርጅ ፓፓንድሬው ገዥ የሰጠው ምላሽ ፣ ሁለተኛው ስለ ግጭቱ ሕዝብ ወዲያውኑ እንዲያሳውቅ ሲመክረው።

አሪቲስስ ስቴሪያዲስ ለፓፓንድሮው “ወደ አቴም ከሄዱ ሁሉንም ነገር ስለሚገለብጡ ለማረድ እዚህ ቢቆዩ ይሻላቸዋል” ብለዋል።

የመጨረሻው የግሪክ ወታደራዊ ክፍል ነሐሴ 24/መስከረም 6 ሄደ። በሚቀጥለው ቀን ፣ በሰሚርና ታዋቂ የውሃ ዳርቻ “ኩዋይ” የተሰበሰቡ በሺዎች የሚቆጠሩ የግሪክ እና የአርሜኒያ ስደተኞች የግሪክ መርከቦች ወደ ጎረቤት የግሪክ ደሴቶች እንዲጓዙ በከንቱ ጠበቁ።

ሆኖም የአሜሪካው ቆንስል ገ / ሆርቶን ጠንካራ ጣልቃ ገብነት ከተከተለ በኋላ ሁለት የአሜሪካ አጥፊዎች ስደተኞችን እንዲያገለግሉ ተልከዋል። በማግሥቱ ነሐሴ 26/መስከረም 8 (1922) የስምርኔስ የግሪክ ባለሥልጣናት ሄዱ። እስካሁን ድረስ የስምርኔስ ከፍተኛ ኮሚሽነር አርስቲደስ ስቴርጊዲስ ለቆስጠንጢኖስ የእንግሊዝ የጦር መርከብ ተሳፈረ።

ለስምርኔስ ከተማ ቆጠራ ተጀመረ

ረቡዕ መስከረም 13 የህዝብ ብዛት ወደ 700,000 አድጓል። የቱርክ ወታደሮች መጀመሪያ በአርሜኒያ ሰፈር ውስጥ እሳትን አቃጠሉ ፣ እስከ እኩለ ቀን ድረስ በእሳት ነደደ። በእራሳቸው ወታደሮች ጥበቃ አውሮፓውያን እና አሜሪካውያን ዜጎቻቸውን ከስሜርና አስወጡ።

ሲጨልም እሳቱ በስደተኞች ተሞልቶ ወደ ባህር ዳር ተሰራጨ። እኩለ ሌሊት የእንግሊዝ አድሚራል ብሮክ የሕይወት ጀልባዎች እንዲላኩ አዘዘ እና በሌሊት በባህር ዳርቻው ውስጥ ያሉት ሁሉም የጦር መርከቦች በ 20,000 ሰዎች ተሞልተዋል።

ሐሙስ ፣ መስከረም 14 ፣ ግማሽ ሚሊዮን ሰዎች አሁንም በውሃ ዳርቻ ላይ ነበሩ።

እሳቱ የተረፈውን አቃጠለ እና ከማል ከኦክቶበር 1 በኋላ የቀሩት ወደ ማዕከላዊ አናቶሊያ እንዲባረሩ ትእዛዝ ሰጠ።

ቅዳሜ ፣ መስከረም 16 እና እሑድ ፣ መስከረም 17 ፣ በሺዎች የሚቆጠሩ ግሪኮች እና አርመኖች በግዴታ ዕድሜ ውስጥ ገብተዋል።

እሁድ ፣ መስከረም 24 ፣ አዛ ጄኒንዝስ ከግሪክ መርከቦች ጋር ሰፊ የመልቀቂያ ሥራውን ጀመረች።

መስከረም 30 ቀን ቅዳሜ ከ 50 ሺህ ያላነሱ ስደተኞች የቀሩ ሲሆን የስምንት ቀናት ማራዘሚያ ሲኖራቸው ሁሉም ጥለው ወጥተዋል።

፱ ስለዚህ የዲያብሎስን ሥራ እንዲያፈርስ የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ ተገለጠ። ከእግዚአብሔር የተወለደ ሁሉ ኃጢአትን አያደርግም፥ ዘሩ በእርሱ ይኖራልና፤ ከእግዚአብሔርም ተወልዶአልና ኃጢአትን ሊያደርግ አይችልም።

፲ የእግዚአብሔር ልጆችና የዲያብሎስ ልጆች በዚህ የተገለጡ ናቸው፤ ጽድቅን የማያደርግና ወንድሙን የማይወድ ሁሉ ከእግዚአብሔር አይደለም።

፲፩ ከመጀመሪያ የሰማችኋት መልእክት። እርስ በርሳችን እንዋደድ የምትል ይህች ናትና፤

፲፪ ከክፉው እንደ ነበረ ወንድሙንም እንደ ገደለ እንደ ቃየል አይደለም፤ ስለ ምንስ ገደለው? የገዛ ሥራው ክፉ፥ የወንድሙም ሥራ ጽድቅ ስለ ነበረ ነው።

፲፫ ወንድሞች ሆይ፥ ዓለም ቢጠላችሁ አትደነቁ።

፲፬ እኛ ወንድሞችን የምንወድ ስለ ሆንን ከሞት ወደ ሕይወት እንደ ተሻገርን እናውቃለን፤ ወንድሙን የማይወድ በሞት ይኖራል።

፲፭ ወንድሙን የሚጠላ ሁሉ ነፍሰ ገዳይ ነው፥ ነፍሰ ገዳይም የሆነ ሁሉ የዘላለም ሕይወት በእርሱ እንዳይኖር ታውቃላችሁ።

፲፮ እርሱ ስለ እኛ ነፍሱን አሳልፎ ሰጥቶአልና በዚህ ፍቅርን አውቀናል፤ እኛም ስለ ወንድሞቻችን ነፍሳችንን አሳልፈን እንድንሰጥ ይገባናል።

፲፯ ነገር ግን የዚህ ዓለም ገንዘብ ያለው፥ ወንድሙም የሚያስፈልገው ሲያጣ አይቶ ያልራራለት ማንም ቢሆን፥ የእግዚአብሔር ፍቅር በእርሱ እንዴት ይኖራል?

፲፰ ልጆቼ ሆይ፥ በሥራና በእውነት እንጂ በቃልና በአንደበት አንዋደድ።

፲፱ ልባችንም በእኛ ላይ በሚፈርድበት ሁሉ፥ ከእውነት እንደ ሆንን በዚህ እናውቃለን በፊቱም ልባችንን እናሳርፋለን፥ እግዚአብሔር ከልባችን ይልቅ ታላቅ ነውና ሁሉንም ያውቃል።

👉 ወንድም ወንድሙን አያድንም፥ ሰውም አያድንም፤ ቤዛውን ለእግዚአብሔር አይሰጥም፥ ለዘላለም እንዲኖር፥ ጥፋትንም እንዳያይ፤ የነፍሳቸው ለውጥ ከብሮአልና፥ ለዘላለምም ቀርቶአልና። በልባቸውም ቤታቸው ለዘላለም የሚኖር፥ ማደሪያቸውም ለልጆች ልጅ የሚሆን ይመስላቸዋል፤ በየአገራቸውም ስማቸው ይጠራል። ሰው ግን ክቡር ሆኖ ሳለ አያውቅም፤ እንደሚጠፉ እንስሶች መሰለ። ይህች መንገዳቸው መሰናክላቸው ናት፥ ከእነርሱም በኋላ የሚመጡ በአፋቸው እሺ ይላሉ።

Is The International Community Failing Ethiopia?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 18, 2021

💭 UN approves independent investigation into suspected war crimes in Tigray conflict.

Ethiopia’s Nobel Peace Prize-winning Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed promised the conflict in Tigray would be resolved quickly.

However, 13 months later, the fighting has intensified amid multiple reports of torture, rape and other atrocities taking place in Tigray.

The conflict has created one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.

The UN’s Human Rights Council has voted to set up an independent investigation into war crimes.

Ethiopia’s government says it will not cooperate with investigators and has accused the council of being used as “an instrument of political pressure”.

Why are international efforts to stop the war failing?
