Sources close to ESAT disclosed that the TPLF regime in Ethiopia is prepared to carry out deadly attacks that mimics the work of terrorists in cities across the nation and use that as an excuse to squash the growing popular resistance against the regime in the name of fighting Al Shabaab terrorists.

The sources said the TPLF intelligence and security has selected five locations – Adama, Dire Dawa, Gondar, Bahir Dar and Shashemene – to target public places and higher institutions of learning. The plan was to use Somali speaking individuals from the Ethiopian Somali region to carry out attacks at the selected locations, according to the sources.

The sources also said the regime hopes to garner support from Western allies posing as a regional peacekeeper and fighter of terrorism in the Horn of Africa.

Last year there were a number of explosions at colleges in the Oromo region during ongoing protests in the region and at the Grand Anwar Mosque in Addis Ababa as the Ethiopian Muslims staged a protest rally. The government had blamed what it called terrorist elements but failed to corroborate its claims. A bomb blast in the Bole area of the capital killed two in 2013. In 2011 the regime said it had foiled a planned bomb attack by Eritrea at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa.

Its past records show that the Ethiopian regime has a habit of using deadly tricks of throwing grenades at public gatherings and institutions and put the blame on resistance groups and neighboring Eritrea, in a futile scheme to get them labeled terrorists.

Regarding the 2006 explosion in Addis, the Wikileaks Ethiopia file exposed the diplomatic cable from the US Embassy in Addis reported that “The GoE announced that the bombs went off while being assembled, and that the three dead were terrorists from the outlawed Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) with links to the Oromo National Congress (ONC). An embassy source, as well as clandestine reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been the work of GoE security forces.”

The regime at the time reported that “the bombs were part of a coordinated terror attack by the OLF and Sha’abiya (Eritrea) aimed at disrupting democratic development,” according to the cable.

The cable published by the Wikileaks at the time quoted Dr. Merara Gudina as saying that “thedeceased had not died while constructing a bomb, but rather at the hands of GoE cadres. Dr. Merera said that the men had been picked up by police a week prior, kept in detention and tortured. He said police then left the men in a house and detonated explosives nearby, killing 3 of them.”

Not coincidentally, political observers believe, the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) issued a report on Monday warning that terrorist attacks from Al Shabaab were not just confined to Somalia but also threatens neighboring countries.

It should be noted that the regime in Ethiopia is a leading member of the regional body, IGAD and the Security Sector Program that launched the 53 page report is led by Ethiopian regime officials.

It remains to be seen if the regime, which is hit hard by ongoing public resistance all across the nation calling for its demise, would once again use its deadly trickeries knowing that its deceits in the past were exposed widely.

Previous same tactics:

  1. Ethiopia Bombs Itself, Blames Eritrea – Foreign Policy Journal – Wikileaks
  2. Bombings Blamed on OLF Possibly the Work of Government of Ethiopia – Wikileaks

  1. But, whom to deceive ? The Ethiopians, whom it is killing, or the Western countries, which raised up the bad wild boys to kill its people ?
    Alas ! Deceiving the Oromos and Amharas is like a monky which is hiding its burned ass from its friends. For the Western countries, already they know that the boys (TPLF) which they helped to grow have developed dementia beyond being healed, let alone cured.

    Whatever the paranoiac regime try to do won’t heal the already thoroughly infected wounds than backfiring to make the matter worst. Also, waiting peace from the mentally infected Nazi-styled group will be naivity. Therefore, holding the already kindled torch high and running through the whole country is the best of all to narrown the standing space for TPLF. TPLF is on the brink of its grave, but, there is no doubt that it will take thousands of lives with it into the grave. But, peoples are ready to pay the precious price, in order to gain back their robbed freedom, diginity and properties.

    Unity and equality together make the unresistable Steel-pillar !

  2. Alert alert alert oppressed people in Abyssinia ( TPLF )

    Don’t forget and never trust USA and west gealt they created those massmorders wayane agama settelers
    And committed to defend them as long wayane kontinuing killings Oromia and Somalis mainly
    The west don’t care by killing Amhara or gambella in addition…. They call it collateral damage !!!?
    The main target are oromo and Somalis
    Like Syria Iraq …. The list goes on we all same fate
    To massacre Muslims in their homes is the best and easiest way to become hero western leader
    And fake wayane settelers admistration understand that….So it not surprising that wayane planted bombs themselves with the help of CIA of course
    Remember USA planted flask evidence to dirtoy Iraq
    The wayane are paid per head Muslims ( how many Oromo & Somalis) they murded
    For the last 25 years

    The rest massacres TPLF committed in other parts Abyssinia are irrelevant for the west and seen as collateral damage

    Oppressed people of east Africa must raise up fight for their freedom….like Vietnam did ….se today their smiling faces…….and se grime pictures of ours old and young

    The only difference between us and Vietnam is that Vietnam is clean from westren puppets and influence
