It was on this day last year, when the parishioners of Mariam Deneglat were celebrating this especial holiday, that Eritrean troops committed a grisly massacre of the parishioners and its guests. Mariam Dengelat remembers its 150+ martyrs today. 2/n invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=A3LlcwmU…

Similarly, the Tekeze Haydro Electric Dam was bombed yesterday with the clear purpose of destroying the only source of light and power for Tigray. Tigray is now in complete power blackout. It was also bombed at the beginning of the war. 2/n

The dying Regime of #AbiyAhmed has in the early morning hours of 30th of November has bombed the Tekeze Hydroelectric Dam. That the Regime in Addis Ababa will do what it can to destroy anything that could benefit the people of #Tigray is nowhere more clear. #TigrayShallPrevail!

Last year today (28 Nov, 2020), ENDF and allies attacked Mekelle from four directions firing at least 49 heavy artilleries to the city. Many people got killed & many are left disabled. Tigray TV speaks with some of the survivors. 1/n invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=3RpxAc57…

Following the attack on Mekelle, a great confusion followed with residents fleeing southwestward. It would take weeks before they return. Journalist Weyni Abraha wrote her testimony in Tigrinya which @Teklai_Michael translated. 2/n tghat.com/2021/01/04/mekelle…

A video from Tigray TV of the drone strike.
The Ethiopian government used drones to bomb this home in the city of #Mekelle, in Tigray region. A family with 5 kids lives here, including a 3 month old baby. This is pure evil. #TigrayGenocide #WarCrimes
