Forty three TPLF Regime troops have been killed with dozens more wounded in fighting between Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) soldiers and regime forces over the last two weeks. The bulk of the fighting has taken place in northern Ogaden in and around the Nogob province. Significant amounts of ammunition and over two dozen rifles as well as communications equipment were captured during the engagements. One armored vehicle belonging to the regime was destroyed near Shilaabo town in western Ogaden during this period.


The TPLF regime continues to retaliate by targeting ethnic Somali civilians in Ogaden where arbitrary arrests and extrajudicial killings continue. The regime has also re-instituted the practice of holding open air military courts in remote villages which often sentence local villagers to death by hanging without due process.

    why should they stop so far every one coming in power didn’t respect humanright and they come in power with gun they are not elected leaders as you know and every body knows. Specially the present primitive TPLF are the worst off all, becasue they are savages, uneducated and full of hate and inferiority.
    So the strugle will continue untill a democratically elected government came in power. This show the tenacity and the comiiment to democracy and equality of the ethiopian ppls especially the Oromo ppls unlike the norrow mided Tigrees.
