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.
