‘70% Health Facilities In Ethiopia’s Tigray Destroyed’ | This is GENOCIDE

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 15, 2021

😈 ይህ 100% የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ (ሰይጣናዊ) ሥራ ነው😈

እንዲህ ያለ አስቀያሚ ጭካኔ እና እንዲህ ያለ አረመኔያዊ ድርጊት በኢትዮጵያን የሶስት ሺህ ዓመታት ታሪክ ሰምተን አይተንም አናውቅም፤ ከውጭ ጠላቶች እንኳን።

በኤም.ኤስ.ኤፍ (MSF) ቡድኖች የተጎበኙ እያንዳንዱ አምስተኛ የጤና ተቋም በወታደሮች ተይዘዋል። በአንዳንድ ሁኔታዎች ይህ ጊዜያዊ ነበር ፣ በሌሎች ውስጥ ደግሞ የትጥቅ ወረራው ቀጥሏል። በምሥራቅ ትግራይ ሙጉላት ውስጥ የኤርትራ ወታደሮች አሁንም የጤና ተቋማቱን እንደ መጠለያ እየተጠቀሙ ነው። ግማሽ ሚሊዮን ነዋሪዎችን የሚያገለግል በማዕከላዊ ትግራይ በአብይ ዓዲ የሚገኘው ሆስፒታል እስከ መጋቢት መጀመሪያ ድረስ በኢትዮጵያ ኃይሎች ተይዟል። 😢😢😢

በአብዛኛዎቹ አካባቢዎች የሚገኙ የጤና ተቋማት ተግባራዊ እንዳይሆኑ ሆን ተብሎ እንዲበላሹ የተደረጉ ይመስላል።„ 😢😢😢

በማዕከላዊ ትግራይ በአድዋ ሆስፒታል የአልትራሳውንድ ማሽኖችን እና መቆጣጠሪያዎችን ጨምሮ የህክምና መሳሪያዎች ሆን ተብሎ ተሰባብረዋል። በዚሁ አካባቢ ሰምማ ውስጥ ያለው የጤና ተቋም በእሳት ከመቃጠሉ በፊት በወታደሮች ሁለት ጊዜ ተዘርፏል የተባለ ሲሆን በሰብያ የሚገኘው ጤና ጣቢያ በሮኬት ተመቶ መውለጃውን ክፍል አጥፍቷል።” 😢😢😢

በትግራይ ገጠራማ አካባቢዎች የሞባይል ክሊኒኮችን የሚያካሂዱ የኤም.ኤስ.ኤፍ ሠራተኞች በአምቡላንስ እጥረት ፣ በመንገዶቹ ላይ በተፈጠረው የፀጥታ ችግር እና በምሽት ሰዓት እላፊ እገዳው ወደ ሆስፒታል መድረስ ባለመቻላቸው በወሊድ ምክንያት የሞቱ ሴቶች እንዳሉ ይሰማሉ። ይህ በእንዲህ እንዳለ ብዙ ሴቶች መደበኛ ባልሆኑ የመፈናቀል ካምፖች ውስጥ ንፅህናው ባልተጠበቀ ሁኔታ እየወለዱ ነው።” 😢😢😢

ግጭቱ ከመጀመሩ ከኖቪምበር 2020 (...) በፊት ትግራይ በኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ካሉ እጅግ በጣም ጥሩ የጤና ስርዓቶች ካሏት ክልሎች አንዷ ነበረች ፣ በጤና ጣቢያዎች በየመንደሮች ፣ በጤና ጣቢያዎች በየከተሞች እና በሆስፒታሎች እንዲሁም ህሙማንን ወደ ሆስፒታል ከሚያጓጉዙ አምቡላንሶች ጋር አገልግሎት በመስጠት ረገድ ጥሩ ሥራ ይሠራ ነበር። ዛሬ ይህ የጤና ስርዓት ሙሉ በሙሉ ወድሟል ማለት ይቻላል።” 😢😢😢

😈 This’s 100% the satanic work of the Antichrist.😈

We have never heard and seen such an ugly cruelty & such a barbaric act in Ethiopia’s three thousand years of history. Even from foreign adversaries.

Every fifth health facility visited by MSF teams was occupied by soldiers. In some instances this was temporary, in others the armed occupation continues. In Mugulat in east Tigray, Eritrean soldiers are still using the health facility as their base. The hospital in Abiy Addi in central Tigray, which serves a population of half a million, was occupied by Ethiopian forces until early March.„

Health facilities in most areas appear to have been deliberately vandalised to make them non-functional

In Adwa hospital in central Tigray, medical equipment, including ultrasound machines and monitors, had been deliberately smashed. In the same region, the health facility in Semema was reportedly looted twice by soldiers before being set on fire, while the health centre in Sebeya was hit by rockets, destroying the delivery room..

MSF staff conducting mobile clinics in rural areas of Tigray hear of women who have died in childbirth because they were unable to get to a hospital due to the lack of ambulances, rampant insecurity on the roads and a night-time curfew. Meanwhile many women are giving birth in unhygienic conditions in informal displacement camps.„

Before the conflict began in November 2020, Tigray had one of the best health systems in Ethiopia, with health posts in villages, health centres and hospitals in towns, and a functioning referral system with ambulances transporting sick patients to hospital. This health system has almost completely collapsed.„

Health facilities across Ethiopia’s Tigray region have been looted, vandalised and destroyed in a deliberate and widespread attack on healthcare, according to teams from international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Of 106 health facilities visited by MSF teams between mid-December and early March, nearly 70 per cent had been looted and more than 30 percent had been damaged; just 13 per cent were functioning normally.

In some health facilities across Tigray, the looting of health facilities continues, according to MSF teams. While some looting may have been opportunistic, health facilities in most areas appear to have been deliberately vandalised to make them non-functional. In many health centers, such as in Debre Abay and May Kuhli in the North-West, teams found destroyed equipment, smashed doors and windows, and medicine and patient files scattered across floors.

In Adwa hospital in central Tigray, medical equipment, including ultrasound machines and monitors, had been deliberately smashed. In the same region, the health facility in Semema was reportedly looted twice by soldiers before being set on fire, while the health centre in Sebeya was hit by rockets, destroying the delivery room.

Hospitals occupied by soldiers

Every fifth health facility visited by MSF teams was occupied by soldiers. In some instances this was temporary, in others the armed occupation continues. In Mugulat in east Tigray, Eritrean soldiers are still using the health facility as their base. The hospital in Abiy Addi in central Tigray, which serves a population of half a million, was occupied by Ethiopian forces until early March.

“The army used Abiy Addi hospital as a military base and to stabilise their injured soldiers,” says MSF emergency coordinator Kate Nolan. “During that time it was not accessible to the general population. They had to go the town’s health centre, which was not equipped to provide secondary medical care – they can’t do blood transfusions, for example, or treat gunshot wounds.”

Ambulances seized

Few health facilities in Tigray now have ambulances, as most have been seized by armed groups. In and around the city of Adigrat in east Tigray, for example, some 20 ambulances were taken from the hospital and nearby health centres. Later, MSF teams saw some of these vehicles being used by soldiers near the Eritrean border, to transport goods. As a result, the referral system in Tigray for transporting sick patients is almost non-existent. Patients travel long distances, sometimes walking for days, to reach essential health services.

Many health facilities have few – or no – remaining staff. Some have fled in fear; others no longer come to work because they have not been paid in months.

Devastating impact on population

“The attacks on Tigray’s health facilities are having a devastating impact on the population,” says MSF general director Oliver Behn. “Health facilities and health staff need to be protected during a conflict, in accordance with international humanitarian law. This is clearly not happening in Tigray.”

Before the conflict began in November 2020, Tigray had one of the best health systems in Ethiopia, with health posts in villages, health centres and hospitals in towns, and a functioning referral system with ambulances transporting sick patients to hospital. This health system has almost completely collapsed.

MSF staff conducting mobile clinics in rural areas of Tigray hear of women who have died in childbirth because they were unable to get to a hospital due to the lack of ambulances, rampant insecurity on the roads and a night-time curfew. Meanwhile many women are giving birth in unhygienic conditions in informal displacement camps.

In the past four months, few pregnant women have received antenatal or postnatal care, and children have gone unvaccinated, raising the risk of future outbreaks of infectious diseases. Patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and HIV, as well as psychiatric patients, are going without lifesaving drugs. Survivors of sexual violence are often unable to get medical and psychological care.

“The health system needs to be restored as soon as possible,” says Behn. “Health facilities need to be rehabilitated and receive more supplies and ambulances, and staff need to receive salaries and the opportunity to work in a safe environment. Most importantly, all armed groups in this conflict need to respect and protect health facilities and medical staff.”

USAID – with an annual budget of over $27 billion and operating in over 100 countries – is notoriously intertwined with covert operations run by the CIA.

An ominous development underway in Ethiopia’s devastating civil war is the intervention by the United States under the pretext of humanitarian relief.

The U.S.’ international aid agency – USAID – announced last week it has deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) in the northern Tiggrai region where millions of people are facing starvation.

A humanitarian crisis has been created in Ethiopia after the central government in Addis Ababa launched a military offensive against the Tiggrai region in November last year. Heavy fighting continues between Tiggrai militia and the Ethiopian National Defense Force. The Ethiopian government forces are being assisted by Eritrean troops which have invaded Tiggrai. There are reports of widespread violations against civilians.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in a phone call on February 27 to open up Tiggrai to humanitarian access and he expressed deep concern over possible war crimes. Washington then promptly deployed the USAID intervention apparently without authorization from the Ethiopian federal government.

The American move came despite a row during a closed meeting at the UN Security Council last week when it is understood that Russia and China objected to U.S. intervention plans in Ethiopia, which they said was over-riding legal processes and issues of national sovereignty.

USAID said its disaster response team is “assessing the situation in Tiggrai, identifying priority needs for the scaling up of relief efforts”. Given the dire humanitarian and security situation in Ethiopia that provision is logically paving the way for a major U.S. military intervention under the guise of the “right to protect” (R2P) presumption which has been unilaterally invoked by Washington in other conflicts.

President Joe Biden has picked Samantha Power as the new head of USAID. The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a former national security advisor to President Barack Obama, Power is a stalwart proponent of R2P foreign interventions. Biden also wants to make Power a member of his national security council.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is, like Power, another staunch advocate of “humanitarian interventions”. They were senior members of the Obama administration who formulated American military interventions in Libya and Syria. The “humanitarian” remit is rightly seen as a cynical moral cover for what would otherwise be condemned as American military aggression to achieve Washington’s own political objectives, such as regime change.

USAID – with an annual budget of over $27 billion and operating in over 100 countries – is notoriously intertwined with covert operations run by the CIA.

The damnable thing about Ethiopia’s current crisis is that arguably it was provoked by the United States from its geopolitical ambitions to control the Horn of Africa region and in particular to cut out China and Russia from this strategically important global hub.

Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed worked previously as a top military intelligence officer in the Ethiopian army before he became prime minister in early 2018. A long-time bilateral security partnership between the U.S. and Ethiopia made Abiy an ideal CIA asset. He was involved in developing Ethiopia’s telecom spying network in a replication of the National Security Agency in the U.S.. He was also educated at a private American university.

Before Abiy’s rise to political power, Ethiopia had an independent policy on foreign relations, pursing strategic partnership with China for economic development. Ethiopia – the second most populous country in Africa and home to the African Union – was seen as a crucial link in building China’s new silk routes from Asia to Africa.

Oddly, Abiy was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize at the end of 2019 for a supposed rapprochement with Ethiopia’s northern neighbor Eritrea. The two countries fought a bitter border war in 1998-2000. In hindsight, the award was a travesty given how Abiy has invited Eritrean troops into Tiggrai to wage war against the civilian population there, committing horrendous massacres.

But the Nobel prize can be seen as part of Abiy’s image-building by his CIA handlers for their objective of reordering Ethiopia. Tellingly, the Western media during his early months in office gushed with praise about the “young democratic reformer” and “peacemaker”. How foolish and fawning those media look now in light of the mayhem and suffering that Abiy unleashed in Tiggrai over the past four months.

In truth the war was building ever since Abiy took office. Almost from the get-go, there was a campaign of low-intensity aggression directed against the Tiggrai region. (This author was living there.) This was while the Western media were hailing him as a “reformer”. Abiy’s campaign of hostility towards Tiggrai involved the central government cutting electricity, water and communications as well as political assassinations. The purpose was to wear down the region and the people’s support for the Tiggrai People’s Liberation Front which had been the previous dominant governing party before Abiy’s ascent. The Tiggrai region represented a bastion of opposition to the plan by Abiy and his CIA handlers to refashion and reorient Ethiopia geopolitically. The power struggle culminated in the full-blown war launched against Tiggrai on November 4, 2020, under false claims of being a security operation against a “terrorist junta”.

The terrible irony is that the war and humanitarian crisis inflicted on six million people in Tiggrai was predictable because Abiy seems to have been following an American imperial plan to destabilize Ethiopia for boosting its great power rivalry with China and Russia. The Horn of Africa is a geopolitical hotspot: it provides a commanding position for North Africa and Sub-Saharan mineral-rich countries, overlooking the vital shipping lanes of the Red Sea and Indian Ocean, and proximate to the oil-rich Arabian Peninsula. Russia last year opened a naval base in Port Sudan on the Red Sea, while China’s only overseas military base is located in Djibouti adjacent to Ethiopia.

Now humanitarian interventionists in the Biden administration are stepping in to “resolve” a mess that the U.S. was instrumental in creating. If the USAID mission is scaled up, as seems intended, then American military could be deployed in Ethiopia giving Washington an unprecedented foothold in a strategically vital region.

It is notable that while the Biden administration seems to be over-riding the authority of the Abiy regime in Addis Ababa, the American objective does not necessarily seek regime change on this occasion. The Biden administration is promoting itself as a mediator in Ethiopia’s civil war, even though this war would not have come about were it not for America’s covert manipulation of Abiy. Recently, the Tiggrai militia have appeared to be gaining the upper-hand against Abiy’s forces and their Eritrean allies. The American intervention seems prompted in part by concern in Washington to prevent the Abiy regime collapsing in defeat.
