Terrorist TPLF obstructing humanitarian supports to Tigray


ADDIS ABABA – Terrorist TPLF group has been continuing to obstruct humanitarian supports to the Tigray State, Government Communication Service (GCS) said.

GCS stated its yesterday’s statement that the Ethiopian government enforced a unilateral ceasefire in Tigray to deliver humanitarian relief, allow farmers in the region to take advantage of the winter rains, and speed up aid distribution. Following this, the terrorist TPLF invaded the Amhara and Afar states, exhibiting its anti-people and anti-peace  sentiment in public.

“Due to the government’s unwavering support for humanitarian relief to the people of Tigray, daily aid has been sent directly to the state. Since July 12, 2021, the government and people of the Afar state have facilitated humanitarian supplies donated by partners for the Tigray state, which were delivered by 1,010 trucks in response to a central government order and out of the Afar people’s and regional government’s fraternal love and collaboration.”

According to the statement, the terrorist group, TPLF, on the other hand, is cruel for utilizing the people of Tigray as a political trade platform. Evidence reveals that the group is using the 1,010 trucks that traveled  into the state to deliver humanitarian aid as military logistics in its current attack of neighboring Amhara and Afar, rather than returning them.

The statement indicated that wheat and other food and non-food products were plundered from government and private warehouses in Kombolcha and other regions where the terrorist group had briefly overrun.

To make matters worse, the group invaded the Abala line, which is a gateway to the Tigray area for humanitarian assistance, and began fire with heavy artillery, restricting aid shipments, as to the statement.

It was learnt that the Ethiopian Government is regularly discussing with stakeholders and implementing different corrective steps to guarantee that the people of Tigray get uninterrupted aid.

“The government is making all 118 World Food Program trucks fully operational, recognizing that there are 1,010 vehicles in the state that have yet to return. With this and more, the Ethiopian government expresses its dedication in resolving continuing issues and streamlining the delivery of aid. Furthermore, offering complete security for drivers during the procedure.”

The statement called that the international community and allies to denounce the TPLF’s terrorist operations and announce that the Ethiopian government will continue to do everything possible to guarantee that aid is delivered to those in need.
