How far will Abiy Ahmed go with his operation in Tigray region? | Inside Story



Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has sacked the Army Chief, head of Intelligence and Foreign Minister.
The central government in Addis Ababa has launched a military operation in the northern region of Tigray.
The offensive comes after months of growing tensions between the federal government and Tigray’s governing TPLF party.
Abiy Ahmed has accused the TPLF of attempting to undermine his leadership and moved to dissolve its regional government.
But those in Tigray say Abiy Ahmed is not a legitimate leader since he postponed elections this year – due to COVID-19.
So, is there a risk of escalation?

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom

Guests:
William Davison – Senior Analyst for Ethiopia at International Crisis Group.
Mustafa Omer – President of Somali Regional State of Ethiopia and Executive Committee member of the governing Prosperity Party.
Mesenbet Assefa – Assistant Professor of Law at Addis Ababa University School of Law.

  1. Esayas + Abiy Ahmed & all their fellows are evildoers, serial killers!!!!!
    Their evil is beyond the measure & those who supports them are likewise➡ Romans 1:32
    "32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them."
    ሮሜ 1 (Romans)
    32፤ እንደነዚህ ለሚያደርጉት ሞት ይገባቸዋል የሚለውን የእግዚአብሔርን ሕግ እያወቁ እነዚህን ከሚያደርጉ ጋር ይስማማሉ እንጂ አድራጊዎች ብቻ አይደሉም።

  6. Is it too much to invite 1 representative of Tigray? Can't you understand that these crazy people are undertaking a Genocide? Can't you mention that Abyi's mandate ended one year ago? Can't you mention that Abyi cut of the electricity in Tigray for weeks by now? You are siding with a non elected government instead of siding with the people that are being bombed. What a shame Al Jazeera

  7. We are seething with anger making our blood boil and tears run down our cheeks thinking of the inhumane and the gruesome cold blooded assassinations committed from behind in the shadow of darkness on the brave Ethiopian Armed Forces, by the barbaric TPLF terrorist thugs; the very people the gallant Ethiopian Armed Forces were protecting and defending from outside intruders for over 20 years.
    “It is the day that will live in infamy,” for having left a deep seated dark scar engraved in our memories and a hole in our hearts of all Ethiopians for centuries to come.
    We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to families who lost their loved ones, and pray for the victims soul to Rest In Peace. Ethiopia shall stretch out her hands to the almighty God and will prevail.

  8. Tigray victim , Ethiopia fake leader. Show his real face finally. He’s a dictator ! Hope rest of nations recognise he’s dangerous for the peace. In Ethiopia. . Remove him asp . Forza Tigray

  9. the military leaders in Tigray are war criminals and they are responsible for many innocent lives killed in the last 27 years and also responsible for several ethnic cleasinings happened in Oromia, Benishangul and Southern regions of Ethiopia. so Abiy will go as far as all of the criminals brought to justice.

  10. We don’t need war because we know the consequences of war.
    This Aby Ahmed have no interest in his own people he only thinks is easy he don’t care how much human life destroying.
    We people don’t want war!
    We need peace!
    Aby & Issaias must go after these two east Africa will be going Peace.
    Stop war!!!
