Addis Ababa, October 24, 2022 (FBC) – To offset significant losses on the battlefield, media outlets under the control of the TPLF group have been attempting to influence the diplomatic front with allegations of civilian deaths, stated Ethiopia Current Issues Fact Check.
With the certainty that the harm and death of vulnerable groups, especially women and children would elicit int’l outrage and condemnation and it would help meet their objectives, Current Issues Fact Check’s statement reads.
The mission and target of the ENDF is to debilitate the military capabilities of TPLF and liberate the civilians it uses as shield.
All units have undergone sufficient training in protecting civilian populations in conflict zones and have proven disciplinary track record.
There are many documented cases where, for the production of dramatized footage, TPLF places civilians in harm’s way and manufactures actual victims in the process, Current Issues Fact Check pointed out.
In other cases, we find photos in circulation that allege a strike has occurred where there’s demonstrably none, the statement concludes.
