ETHIOPIA CALLS FOR FULL MOBILIZATION IN ATTEMPT TO STOKE CIVIL WAR

A sense of desperation is setting in among the Ethiopian government.

On August 10th, Nobel Peace Prize-winning Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed issued a statement calling on all Ethiopians capable of wielding a weapon to enlist in the military and crush the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

He said that “now” was the right time for all capable Ethiopians “who are of age” to join the Defense Forces, Special Forces and militias.

The purpose for this is for citizens to show their patriotism, and fight against other citizens of their own country.

The statement also takes aim at some in the international community, blaming them for the “machinations of foreign hands” in the nine-month war that has spilled from Tigray into the neighboring Amhara and Afar regions.

The call by Ahmed furthermore reinforces the idea that the unilateral government-imposed ceasefire has entirely failed, after being openly mocked by the TPLF.
