Ethiopia: Self Organized Rebel Group says Armed Struggle Only Option

Amara rebel group say they have been forced to picking up arms because of TPLF’s policy of destroying Amhara and the Christian Orthodox Tewahdo Church.

By ESAT News,

A leader of a self organized armed group says Ethiopians have no option other than waging armed struggle to free themselves from the TPLF’s brutal misrule.

Gobe Melke, in an exclusive interview with ESAT, said his forces have engaged regime forces last week and inflicted major damage in Northern Ethiopia in a gun battle that lasted for five hours.

Melke said his group works in tandem with Patriotic Ginbot 7, an armed group operating from its base in Eritrea. PG7’s military companies operating inside Ethiopia have also been fighting regime forces in recent months.



A spokesperson for PG7 confirmed that the two forces cooperate in their fight against TPLF.

Head of political affairs and spokesperson for the group Mengistu Woldeselassie also confirmed to the Voice of America that PG7 had last week engaged regime forces in Gondar where one of its military commanders have reportedly killed himself instead of surrendering.

News of the death the commander, Maj. Mesafint Tigabu, continued to take the headlines in the Ethiopian media with the Ethiopian regime claiming its forces killed him and others in a fight and arrested dozens while PG7 said the senior commander shot and killed himself to avoid falling in the hands of his enemies.

Melke’s interview refuted claims that Gobe’s forces only represent and fight for the freedom of the Amhara. Melke said his group is fighting to free Ethiopia of the tyrannical regime and would work with any group that has the resolve to fight the regime.

Ethiopian regime officials continue to give contradictory statements on the widening conflicts in the northern part of the country.

The regime initially denied any fight was underway with freedom fighters in northern Ethiopia but the state media later in the week said “some elements sent by arch foe Eritrea were defeated and that Maj. Tigabu was killed in the fight.”

The spokesperson for PG7 says that the regime is pandering lies as part of its desperate propaganda ploy.

  1. Unless they inflicted major damage on twitter, we have never heard of any so called Amhara militia or gun fight in Gondar. One can’t help to wonder, tegaru has heavy military presence eyeing shabo already, why would you want to come and face Agazi with less than 20 sneaker wearing idiots? Unless you entire plan is getting captured just to grab a headline or two? Making Ethiopia once again look like we are in some kind of civil war or hoping other Amharu would join your shenanigans. I have never seen such pathetic leader like Birru Nega in my entire life. The other part that should make people wonder, why does shabo allow these people to cross and bring all the heat towards your dying economy? Unless the thinking is, we have already lost, what’s the worest it can happen? It’s just baffling to say the least.

    1. Even TPLF Government admits battles with Patriotic Ginbot 7 and Amhara militias

      and yet you said,’
      we have never heard of any so called Amhara militia or gun fight in Gondar.’
      What are you smoking?

    2. I swear you are mentally retarded; this is war, not a joke dude. Seriously my IQ has dropped a few points from reading you nonsense comments. I should have heeded Adal’s warning….

      1. Brother Kaleab, I told you before he is a STUBBORN LIKE A MULE, UNTOUCHABLE LIKE A HEDGEHOG!!
        Before we had ASS’ running Ethiopia and now the MULES are at the helm !!lol

      2. LooooooooL
        Kaleab, You know what is scary? Sentiko is even dumber in person, because you can’t Google Ugumesh Little Brain fast enough for a normal discussion 🙂

        If you have children under 7 years old or have a child relative, Here is my trick, but please keep it secret and do not share it with anyone:-)

        Pass your smart phone or LapTop to under 7 years old child to respond to Sentiko. That seems to work for me.

          1. That is actually good advice. You know what, you can not argue with a lying, cheating, shape-shifting, reptilian weyane. How do you know when they are lying? When they start talking.

    3. What ever you need to tell yourself but you can’t change the fact happened in Ethiopia because it happened in broad day light and the whole world was watching. there is no need to tell the world about Ethiopia is in civil the truth is everybody knows Ethiopia is in civil war in fact Ethiopia always been in civil war.

    4. You seem a brainwashed imature TPLF cadre.try to come out of their box and think freely with conscience and provide comments from your heart, it is not good to live in denial.writing plausible and factual comments as much as you can would help readers get a lesson, if you give a coment which you yourself does not believe is credible, doing it to strengthen for the message you wanna address to oudience, simply attracts negative feedback from others as you can see the reply to your coment.

    5. Sentiko, now what is going to say your friend Ana Gomez in EU about the imprisonment of dr. Merara Gudina? kalas weyane kullu fah ilukum eh..Nehna ma qemza terià zeleqa, quch ilka merày terah..wey push-push megbar

    1. I gues they have to release him for their advantage, otherwise his detention could retriger mass riot in oromia region of ethiopia.

  2. Compare the people in the video Woyane just released saying they apprehended to the background image for the above video. You can at least see 4 guys in both. For me either this confirms the opposition in Eritrea is failing and it is incompetent or both sides are just playing and using same stupid people for their own propaganda. Either way, people are tired of this bulshitt.
