The following video reports are clear evidences how much Egypt is meddling in Ethiopia’s internal political affairs for her own interest in the waters of the Blue Nile. Ethiopia is not that stupid not to know her own internal and external enemies that are prepared to dismantle her history and national integrity! EGYPT, HANDS OFF ETHIOPIA!!!

BIBLICAL PROPHESY:
“A sword shall come on Egypt, and anguish shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt; and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down…” (Ezekiel 30:4).

Blind and hateful politics and racial/tribal bigotries of Ethiopian political movements won’t benefit Ethiopia… It would probably lead the country to another worse catastrophic political chaos and bloodshed like to the ones we had been witnessing in the neighboring Somalia and the South Sudan which had caused tremendous loss of lives and human sufferings for decades…! Ethiopia needs not ongoing wars and conflicts but rather political stability and economic and technological developments for its peoples that had suffered for so a longtime from a chronic poverty and developmental and technological backwardness!

Pope appeals for end to violence in Tigray

Pope Francis has appealed for an end to violence and the restoration of peace in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, as the Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, announced an assault on the regional capital.

In a statement released by the Holy See Press Office this evening, (Friday) Pope Francis voiced his concern for the situation in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, and surrounding areas. Matteo Bruni, Press Office Director, said the Pope is following news of the conflict closely.

The statement reads: “Because of the violence, hundreds of civilians have died and tens of thousands of people are forced to flee their homes to Sudan. During the Angelus on 8 November, Pope Francis, referring to the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia, said: ‘While I urge that the temptation of an armed conflict be rejected, I invite everyone to prayer and to fraternal respect, to dialogue and to a peaceful resolution to the disagreements.’”

The Pope also lamented the worsening humanitarian situation.

“The Holy Father, in calling for prayer for this country, appeals to the parties to the conflict to stop the violence, to protect all lives, especially those of civilians, and to restore peace to the people.

Prime Minister Ahmed received three African ex-leaders working on behalf of the African Union. Joaquim Chissano of Mozambique, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and Kgalema Motlanthe of South Africa all arrived in Ethiopia for talks on Friday.

The African Union called for an immediate halt to hostilities on 10 November, but the conflict only spiralled further out of control. Now, Abiy’s army is currently poised for a final offensive against regional forces in the Tigray region. Three weeks ago, he deployed the national Army on an offensive against local troops in Tigray after accusing them of attacking federal troops.

He said the military would bring an end to the fighting in the region and remove its leadership, which his government regards as illegal.

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which holds control of the northern region, still refuses to surrender its rule.

Abiy’s forces are currently near Mekelle, a city of 500,000 people. The TPLF said its forces would stand firm, as soldiers dug trenches and prepared fortifications.

Over the last few weeks, thousands have died and more than 30,000 refugees have fled to Sudan. Reports suggest this conflict is already spilling into Eritrea and destabilising the wider Horn of Africa.

On Friday, the UNHCR said nearly 100,000 Eritrean refugees in Tigray could run out of food as early as next week if supplies cannot reach them.

The UN are hoping to raise US$200 million to cover food, shelter and the other urgent needs of refugees, with plans to help 200,000 people over the next six-months.
