Q Garowe Online |Nov 20, 2006 Garowe Online service desk confirm the surrender of about fifty members of the EPRDF military stationed in the town of Babili. The fifty soldiers are reported to have surrendered to the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) fighters who waged a surprise attack on the EPRDF military garrison in Babili.

In related news, specially trained ONLF commandos carried out an operation in the city of Awaare. It is confirmed that this operation netted ten men one of whom is the chairman of the city of Awaare.

Reports from elsewhere in Ogaden indicate an increase in the number of operations where ONLF forces attack the EPRDF military and its affiliated militias within their main garrisons. In one such incident in the town of Qoreyga, ONLF forces are reported to have attacked and killed fourteen members of the Ethiopian military. It is not known whether there were casualties on the ONLF side.

Recent ONLF operations have been felt throughout Ogaden. The speed, accuracy and the boldness of these operations, since they take place within the EPRDF military garrisons, is said to have demoralized many members of the EPRDF military.

    People, we have to see these problems in a broader way. I ofcourse hate what woyane did to our democracy and people back home. But still ONLF isn’t a solution for Ethiopia in its program and beliefs currently. They have their own Agenda. They don’t care for other Ethiopians who’r a victim of Meles regime. They have their own narrow program around ethio somalis( they don’t even consider them as Ethiopian)they call them Ogadenian. I also understand that meles is taking advantage of this situation. But we shouldn’t be quick to Viva The ONLF until they come to the understanding where all ethinic groups and tribes in Ethiopia are a victim of the current regime including Tigreans.We have to work together for a democratized one Ethiopia.
    Peace to all Ethiopians ( from the tip of Ogaden to the west border of Gambella, from the border of moyale to the tip of Eritrea)

    ONLF do not try to exploit the situation. Ethiopia got a lot of enemies their goal is only one and one to erase “ethiopia” out of the map and creat
    weak ethnic based staes. ONLF is one of them.I hate MELES I hate ONLF to.
    ONLF is a weapon of Jihadist narrow minded group.

    Long live ETHIOPIA

    All we agree Woyane is our enemy. But why we say bravo!!! we should think what is their agenda’to create a great Somali land’. The recent collaberation with OLF, CUD AND SLF is realy to bring democracy for Ethiopian. We have to wait before say bravo!. However, Our enemy(Meles and his colques) stand at the grave we should shove them.
