"Never Again," which has been adapted by the UN General Assembly after WWII in 1948, has been violated with the genocides in Cambodia and Rwanda. And here we go again, as the world is witnessing genocide by the fascist Abiy Ahmed and the dictator Isayas Afeworki against ethnic Tigreans in the 21st century with bombardments on innocent civilians, children, women, and elders, which is heartbreaking to see.

 

The international community and the world must recognize that the time is now to take action for the rule of law and respect for human rights in Tigrai. The indiscriminately barbaric and brutal massacres at Mai Kadra, killing of children and teenagers in Mekelle, Tembens and shire should be investigated by independent agencies.

 

The war is between the minority Tigreans for democracy, justice, and equality for all nations and nationalities in Ethiopia in one hand and to crown fascist Abiy Ahmed and dictator Isayas Afewrki on the other hand. Fascist Abiy has no military capability to win the war against Tigrai. He was frustrated and did not leave any unturned stone to get military help not only from countries in the region, but also from the Arab world as well.

 

Half a million military invaders from four countries - Eritrea, Somalia, Ethiopian federal, Amara - and drones from UAE are currently participating in the war against Tigrai. Nonstop fighter jets, helicopters, artilleries and drones are bombarding day and night in cities, villages and innocent civilians are losing their precious lives every single day. On the top of that, electricity, water, telephone lines and internet have been cut off by the fascist Abiy for over a month. 

 

Moreover, humanitarian aids have been blocked by the fascist Abiy; as a result, many have lost their lives due to starvation. More than 1.5 million have been displaced from their homes and 60,000 of them are in shelter camps in Sudan. Their homes have been destroyed and properties including from the well reserved date in the 10th century Abraha we Atsbaha in wukro and from St.Gabriel in Mekelle Churches have been looted. Additionally, more than 120,000 civilians, including military personnel who had been serving under the UN mission in Somalia and Sudan, are in concentration camps in Addis Ababa because of their ethnicity.

 

Finally, facist Abiy Ahmed and Isayas Afeworki are responsible for war crimes against humanity committed in Tigrai and be tried before international criminal court to protect genocides will never happen again.
