Twenty-One Days to War on Tigray
Honorable, I am writing to you as a member of your constituent—who cherishes the American values of life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness & would like to share my findings on how the war on Tigray started in chronological order. It is my hope that you will utilize these main points to revise the current U.S resolution on Tigray. If you would like the evidence to the points below such as admission by government officials, I would be happy to provide it. Oct 14: President Isaias visits the headquarters of the Ethiopian Air Force in Bishoftu, Oromia region. Oct 25: There were renewed efforts to transfer divisions & heavy arms of the Northern Command to regional commands outside of the Tigray region. Oct 27: Seyoum Mesfin, Ethiopia’s late former foreign minister, Eritrean military & security officials were already stationed in the recently established North-West Command located in the Amhara region capital. Oct 29: The newly appointed commander of the Northern Command, Brig. Gen. Belay, & his other deputy Brig. Gen. Seid Tekuye of the Ethiopian Defence force (ENDF) were “politely informed” in advance not to travel to the Tigray region to assume their new posts. Nov 1: Eritrea issues a menacing statement declaring it was “game over '' for the TPLF & claiming it (TPLF) is “quivering in its deathbed”. Ethiopian federal forces are abruptly withdrawn from Guliso District of West Wollega Zone in Ethiopia’s Oromia region. Ethiopian federal forces are observed being transported by bus out of the city of Shilaabo in Ethiopia’s Somali region. 2,500 soldiers from the neighboring Federal Republic of Somalia are transported by bus overnight from Eritrea, where they were being trained, to Ethiopia’s Tigray region. ENDF is ordered to be on “standby”. Nov 2: A statement is issued by the EU’s High Representative Josep Borrell, stating that all parties, as well as Ethiopia’s neighbors, should abstain from provocative military deployments. Nov 3: Sudan’s military leader Lt. Gen. Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan agrees to close the Ethiopia–Sudan border. According to Belgian NGO, EEPA, by this date, Eritrean troops are already present in the Tigrayan town of Gerhu-Serenay along the Eritrea–Tigray border. Brig. Gen. Mulualem Admasu of the ENDF reveals in an interview that on this date “tanks were readied, ammunition loaded & battalions deployed”. Aircraft with commandos landed in Mekelle, Tigray. Amhara region police commissioner, Abere Adamu, said in a public address that on this date “deployment of forces had taken place on our borders [of the Amhara region] from east to west. The war started that night after we had already completed our preparations”. Amhara region special forces Sergeant Tadilo Tamiru & his 170-man unit are already situated in a small town along the Tigray–Amhara border before fighting commences. They later join the battle that breaks out in Dansha. Thank you for your serious consideration of my concerns & look forward to your response & actions.
