By TesfaNews,

Eritrea said it killed more than 200 Ethiopian TPLF troops and a further 300 wounded following the regime’s surprise attack on June 12, 2016 along the Tsorona Central Front, Eritrea’s Information Ministry said today in a statement on its website.

The statement also adds, Eritrea quashed the Ethiopian attack and forced the troops to retreat beyond where they initially unleashed the attack.

There was no mention of any prisoners of war but the ministry says these tolls are “conservative estimates”.

In an interview with VOA’s Horn of Africa Service, Ethiopia’s Communications Minister Getachew Reda suggested the figures are inaccurate but stopped short of denying them.

“A retreating army and an army in disarray under normal circumstances does not have a sense of what happened,” he said.

He also said Ethiopia has no interest in disclosing its assessment of damages during the battle.

Eritrea accuses Ethiopia of sparking the fighting and said the purpose and ramifications of this latest attack are not yet clear.

The Ethiopian Foreign Ministry instead accused Eritrea of the attack and said retaliatory, rather they call it “proportional”, measures were taken and seriously weakened the Eritrean army.

News of renewed border attack raised fears that the two countries could be sliding once again toward an all-out war.

Eritrea has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to condemn what it called a military offensive by Ethiopia.

The African Union this week has urged Eritrea and Ethiopia to exercise restraint and avoid any actions that could further endanger regional stability.

The Horn of Africa nations should “refrain from any statement and action likely to aggravate the situation,” African Union Commission chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said late Tuesday in a statement.

“A deal brokered by the African Union that was agreed on by the two nations 16 years ago hasn’t been fully implemented,” Dlamini-Zuma said. The continental body is ready to help Ethiopia and Eritrea “address the challenges at hand and normalize their relations,” she said.

Eritrea Press Release – Update

Picture taken after Eritrea quashed the attack and controlled Ethiopia’s initial position

By Shabait,

The Sunday attack of June 12, 2016, launched through the TPLF regime on the Tsorona Front was quashed on Monday (13 June) morning entailing heavy losses to its troops.

TPLF troops were compelled to retreat to locations beyond from where they initially unleashed the attack.

In this reckless attack whose ultimate aim is difficult to comprehend, more than 200 TPLF troops have been killed and more than 300 wounded. These are conservative estimates.

Why did this callous bloodshed happen? And, for what purpose?

Those who have instigated this reckless act have attempted to provide the TPLF with political, media and diplomatic smoke-screen, both before and after the attack. They have also deceitfully tried to apportion equal blame to the aggressor and the victim. The Government of Eritrea will address these dimensions of the attack in subsequent statements.

Why Ethiopians Stand With Eritrea this Time 

Member of the Patriotic Ginbot 7 Council and Head of Foreign Affairs of the External Leadership, Ato Neamin Zeleke, told the Washington based Netsanet Le Ethiopia radio that the majority of the Ethiopian people wants to live in peace, as a good neighbour with Eritrea and support no war or attack of any kind on Eritrea by the minority ruling TPLF regime.

If push comes to shove, Ato Neamin said, Ethiopians will stand by Eritrea and fight back to free themselves from the clutches of the unpopular Ethiopian regime.

  1. BREAKING: General Deriba Mekonen reportedly defected to Eritrea from Tsorona front. በርካታ ወያደሮች በጄነራል ድሪባ መኮንን እየተመሩ እጃቸውን ለግንቦት ሰባት ሰጡ። Details will come soon ….

    1. Thank you Tesfa News Selam ksefen eyu nhzbitat msraqawi Africa,sala eti wufuy hezbi Ertra.
      Awet nHafash zkhri nswuatna.

    2. Could the war have been started because of the defection of the General … Trying to kill the General, his soldiers and their military secrets, before they end up with the opposition in Eritrea?

    3. ዋርሳይ…..ዋርሳይ፡ ውላድ ሳዋ ….ኣብ ጾሮና ኣብቲ ተሓምበል እምበኣር ውዒልካ! Warsai, Wulad Sawa, you where there in the middle of the TEHAMBELA in Tserona. ዋርሳይ…..ዋርሳይ፡ ውላድ ሳዋ , what kind of gallantry and what kind of brain do you posses to crush the those who dared to cross the border. Here they are; you left them in disarray with 200 dead and 300 wounded with no ኣግላይ and ፈንጂ-ረጋጭ to hide their dead.

      Then again, ዋርሳይ…..ዋርሳይ፡ ውላድ ሳዋ ኣብ ጾሮና ኣብቲ ተሓምበል እምበኣር ውዒልካ! Warsai, Wulad Sawa, can you help it for your older brother YIKEALO was there with you in the middle of the TEHAMBELE.

      YIKEALO AND WARSAI, thanks for making me have a good night sleep!

    4. Just one general defected and his name is Deriba Mekonen.Isn’t that fascinating? Eritreans political maturity and the way they work to use political political disagreement is just a joke. Eritreans talk about what they wish to happen than thing that happened. It seems to me most of the regime supporters are old and still buried in the old way of thinking. Eritrea capitalized when ethiopia had internal problem during Derg era to become independent. Today ethiopia is much more stable and eritrea can’t manipulated the political situation in ethiopia since the country and ethiopian people are getting very mature about regional and international politics. Since ethiopia is more or less stable internally eritrea is trying to create internal chaios in ethiopia similar to 180 to 1990 so that eritrea can dictate what is going in ethiopia but there are very few ethiopians who have the stomach for that kind of issue in ethiopia and eritrea is doomed without poltical problems in ethiopia. Eritrea can’t will not deal with ethiopia without bringing some ethiopians to the table to help eritrea internal in ethiopia and that is not going to happen

      1. Absolutely Right !!!
        We should not have made a big deal for the defection of just a single General!!
        I have to admit, you are a special breed of High IQ Woyane.

      2. Sounds like Erta to me! Or, that level of mendacity is spreading. A cursory search on the internet will show your “POLITICAL MATURITY” with the altered fake attacks on Eritrea like the one on Bisha and the most recent example of weapons captured from the G7 in the Oromia region! One will find numerous pictures copied as they are to make readers believe that Ethiopia is “advancing” rapidly. The question any reasonable person would ask themselves is, for whose consumption this futile exercise is. Ethiopians living in Ethiopia are there to witness whatever the claimed “development” is! Ethiopians in the diaspora? They go to their country to see what is on the ground! Eritreans? We are not as gullible as you would like us to be, even those who have an axe to grind against the GOE. We also have means of verifying your lies! Besides, how many times have we caught you lying and what makes you we will believe whatever you report, whether it is about yourselves or about us?

        The question is, what are you trying to prove? You are so desperate to make others believe the fake image you have created for yourselves that you feel obliged to lie and the only method you have found is the IMMATURE copying and pasting on your websites and your newspapers. Even your ministry of information is unabashed when it claims pictures it posted claiming it is the picture of weapons captured

        was by “mistake.” What kind of mistake was that? What was that picture doing in the ministry’s hand in the first place? For handy situations such as the one it use it for?

        I could have cited many more examples, but for now it is enough. So much for your POLITICAL (IM)MATURITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5. That is exactly what I’m talking about woyane is like a rotten tree, all it needs is a little push. Woyane is good only to slaughter unarmed civilians. When the going gets tough they pee in their pants simply because they have no purpose and goal other than enslaving Ethiopians. Their days are numbered. Eritrea has started it, we will finish it.

  3. ኤርትራ ከ200 በላይ የኢትዮጵያ ወታደሮችን ገድላ ከ300 በላይ ማቁሰሏን አስታወቀች

    [ሰኔ ፱(ዘጠኝ) ቀን ፳፻፰ ዓ/ም ኢሳት ዜና] – የኤርትራ ማስታወቂያ ሚኒስቴር ባወጣው መግለጫ የህወሃት መንግስት ሰኔ 5 ቀን 2008ዓም በጾረና ግንባር ጥቃት መጀመሩንና ሰኞ ሰኔ 6 ጠዋት ላይ ለማጥቃት የተንቀሳቀሰው ጦር ከፍተኛ ጉዳት ደርሶበት ወደ ሁዋላ ማፈግፈጉን ገልጿል።

    በዚህ አላማው ግልጽ ባልሆነ የግድየለሽ ጥቃት 200 የኢትዮጵያ ወታደሮች ሲገደሉ 300 የሚሆኑ ደግሞ ቆስለዋል ብሎአል። የሟቾች ቁጥር ከዚህም ሊልቅ ይቻላል ሲል በመግለጫው ጠቅሷል። ይህን ደም አፋሳሽ ጦርነት ለማካሄድ ለምን ተፈለገ? ምንስ ለማግኘት ነው ሲል የሚጠይቀው መግለጫው፣ ይህን ሃላፊነት የጎደለው ጥቃት እንዲጀመር ያነሳሱ ሃይሎች ከጥቃቱ በፊትና በሁዋላ ለህወሃት የፖለቲካ፣ የሚዲያና የዲፕሎማሲ ሽፋን ለመስጠት ሞክረዋል ብሎአል። ጥቃቱን በጀመረውና ጥቃቱ በተፈጸመበት ላይ እኩል ወቀሳ መቅረቡንም መግለጫው አውግዟል። የኤርትራ መንግስት የጥቃቱን ስፋት በተመለከተ ተከታታይ መግለጫ እንደሚሰጥ አስታውቋል።

    ኤርትራ የህወሃት መንግስት ጥቃቱን እንዲፈጽም ከጀርባ አነሳስተዋል፣ የሚዲያና የዲፕሎማሲ ሽፋን እንዲሰጠው አድርገዋል ያለችውን ሃይል ወይም ሃይሎች በስም አልጠቀሰችም። ይሁን እንጅ እስካሁን ድረስ ሁለቱ ተፋላሚ ሃይሎች ወደ አላስፈላጊ ግጭት እንዳይገቡ ማስጠንቀቂያ ያወጣች ብቸኛዋ አገር አሜሪካ ናት።

    ኤርትራ ያወጣችውን መግለጫ በተመለከተ በኢትዮጵያ በኩል እስካሁን የተሰጠ መልስ የለም። የመንግስት ቃል አቀባይ የሆኑት አቶ ጌታቸው ረዳ በኤርትራ ላይ ተመጣጣኝ እርምጃ ተወስዷል ሲሉ መግለጫ መስጠታቸው ይታወቃል። ወደ ዜና ከመግባታችን ትንሽ ቀድም ብሎ ደግሞ የተባበሩት መንግስታት ድርጅት ዋና ጸሃፊ ባን ኪሙን ሁለቱ አገራት ወደ ጦርነት እንዳይገቡ አሳስበዋል። የአልጀርሱ ስምምነት ተግባራዊ እንዲሆንም ዋና ጸሃፊው ጠይቀዋል።

    ከ15 አመታት በፊት በሁለቱ አገራት መካከል ተደርጎ በነበረው ጦርነት ፣ በኢትዮጵያ በኩል ከፍተኛ ጉዳት የደረሰው በጾረና በኩል ነበር። በወቅቱ ጦርነቱን እንደመሩት የሚነገርላቸው አቶ ስዬ አብርሃ በጾረና ግንባር ለደረሰው ከፍተኛ ጉዳት ወቀሳ ድሮሳባቸው እንደነበር በጊዜው ይወጡ የነበሩ ጋዜጦች ዘግበዋል።

    የህወሃት ደጋፊዎች የመከላከያ ሰራዊቱ በኤርትራ ላይ ሙሉ ጦርነት እንዲከፍት አሁንም ጥሪ እያቀረቡ ነው። ግጭቱ በተጀመረበት ሰኔ 5፣ በርካታ የህወሃት ደጋፊ ጋዜጠኞች “ ሙሉ ጦርነት ተጀመረ፣ አሰብን እናስመልስ” በማለት በማህበራዊ ሚዲያዎች ዘገባዎችን ቢያቀርቡም፣ በኢህአዴግ መንግስት በኩል ግን ተመጣጣኝ እርምጃ ወስደናል ከማለት ውጭ በጦርነቱ እንደሚገፋበት ፍንጭ አልሰጠም።

    የኢህአዴግ መንግስት ከኤርትራ ጋር ለመታረቅ ተደጋጋሚ ሙከራ ማደርጉን ይገልጻል። ባድመን ለኤርትራ ለማስረከብ ፈቃደኛ መሆኑንም ይናገራል። የኢህዴግ መንግስት ባድመንም ሆነ ሌሎች በሄግ ፍርድ ቤት ለኤርትራ የተሰጡ ቦታዎችን ለማስረከብ ለኤርትራ የሚያቀርበው ቅድመ ሁኔታ ኤርትራ በአገሯ የሚንቀሳቀሱ የኢትዮጵያ ተቃዋሚዎችን አሳልፋ እንድትሰጥ ወይም ከአገሯ እንድታስወጣ የሚጠይቅ መሆኑን የዲፕሎማቲክ ምንጮች ይገልጻሉ

  5. Meanwhile, I read the most idiotic, extremely bizarre, and musingly laughable statement ever coming from the Woyane mouthpiece Aigaforum. It reads :

    “In unprecedented move Ethiopia is prepared to demand Isaias Afeworki to leave Eritrea”.

    One can not make a head or tail of this moronic joke except to wonder with shock and amusement at the level of stupidity and arrogance of the retards leading the current day Ethiopia.

    1. They are good at talking not at walking at the walk. They have deceived very few in pseudo economic progress etc. Well a lie is a lie. We will soon see the demise of this cancerous evil woyane. Eritrea keep up the push, let burry them & asher a new era.

    1. Great poem, wonderful Raee. Indeed, woyane is a real cancer in our region, it won’t be long to pay their price.

  7. The heading “Eritrea Killed 200..” is not appropriate. Eritrea doesn’t kill.
    The proper heading should have been: “Invading Weyane troops suffered heavy losses!”

  8. wake up highlander · Edit

    I cannot believe the comments of joy on this web are from Tigrina could you be so happy by killing your brothers and sisters?this web must be of neftegna ginbot 7 and Eritrea is run by neftegna ginbot 7. by the way isayas is very loved by the neftegnas and only Eritreans know the reason for that.

    1. Wake up Weyanay!

      ወዴት ጠጋ ጠጋ?! In case you have not caught up with time, Eritrea is a country and its people are called Eritreans. For us, the Ethiopian people are our brothers, not the ethnocentric Weyane! We are happy because a destructive Weyane force that came to kill, maim, steal,

    2. Invaders could not be our brothers and sisters; just to let you know, in case your minority confused woyane dare to invade Eritrea, they including you will suffer like never before.

    3. Sworn enemy can’t be my brother. Do you know that Ethiopians are the most hated people in Africa because of their of sick minds So the joy is not only here but all over Africa.

  9. VIVA to the Brave ERITREAN DEFENSE FORCES and VIVA TO OUR GREAT LEADERSHIP and VIVA TO OUR GREAT PEOPLE, We have been patient with these Terrorist-tigray-tplf-beggars for over 25 years now, I believe that they have mistaken our patience with fear, But this time around they will never try something like this again, they are already busy going to Europe and USA and begging them to remove the Eritrean government for them, these Terrorist-tigray-tplf-beggars have no shame, ERITREA just kick their behind and they are begging their white masters to remove Eritrean government for them, there is no shame more than this in my book, Once again VIVA TO A FREE AND INDEPENDENT ERITREA FOR ETERNITY AND AWET N HAFASH, ZELALEMAWI KEBRIN MOGOSIN N KULOM SEMATATNA!!!

  10. I will give you credit for an excellent PR stunt and giving some hope to diaspora supporters. How come shabo doesnt say how many were killed on its side? While you were killing 200, thr Ethiopian Army was doing what exactly? All this to distract UN from taking the leaders to court? Very inappropriate as usual but we all know how this movie will end. Shabo days are numbered when its start reporting on border clash between us. We shall wait and see.

      How long do you think Woyane will last. I give them until December of 2016. There will not be Woyane past that date. May be even sooner. The minority ethnic apartheid regime’s days are coming to an end.

      1. I agree with you. Irs pleanty of time to finish all the projects Meles started. It gives us about eight years? Wait, hope you are not using Italian calander, are you? Ethiopian year is 2008, we can live with 2016.

    2. We don’t need PR you ጋዕጋዕ ወዲ ማይ ጠላሚት። Speaking the truth is our mods operand/. Of course you wouldn’t have a clue what “Truth” is for you were born to lie, cheat, deceive, deny and back stab.
      As to our precious causalities, who got harmed for no apparent reason by your criminal thugs, we do not issue that until the next of kin is formally advised, although it is none of your freaking business ያ ሳሕሳሕ ዋሒድ!

      1. Ata shabo, why didnt you tell the truth in 2012 when we came to kick your behind? Why all the sudden today? Deep down, you know the truth. While you are yapping, we just got the last country vote to join UN. Say a prayer, we are coming. Will tell the world the good news come next week.

    We have been wanting for so long time with patients EDF and our Government thanks very much and sorry if we thought even for a single time that you are not capable of returning getting and claiming back our territories occupied by the Evil Satan Woyane these even sums bulshit are hated by everyone in the region including the poor people of Tigray whom they destroyed our relationship with them and tried to enstigate hatred between us and Ethiopians and giving them false dreams about our Teretories like our second port Assab .Message to so called oppositions see what some of them said to feel shame of yourself es and to be real Eritreans stand with your Peoples and Government

  13. Let’s do the math. 500 TPLF troops out of action, in just 2 days. Let’s assume weyane tries a full scale war. That means, they’re finished in one year of fighting.

  14. These Eritreans kno how to fight, they are not afraid of death, they coming running to you while shooting at the same time, the Oromo and Ogaden rebels should take notice of the brave Eritreans armed forces, I’m sure if they follow EPLF ways then they can defeat TPLF regime, rem EPLF defeated mengistu which was backed by American and Russians, the TPLF is nothing compared to the regime of mengistu so the OLF can easily attack and kill TPLF bases in Oromo and re-arm it’s self.

  15. wow was there a war b/n Ethio and Eri. kana wuste newu …… enanite tebalu egna gin zara ena chandira: tikur fikir: yewubet esiregnoch …..eyayen torinet menorun alisemanim
