We are very concerned about the ethnic killings of Amharas in Horo Guduru Wellega Zone, West Wellega Zone and in Kellem Wellega Zone Oromia from June to September 2022:
Amhara survivors of the latest round of ethnically-targeted killings in Wellega, in Oromia region are under siege and afraid for their lives. OLF-Shene regained control of Jardega Jarte Wereda on September 24, 2022; 60 Amhara civilians were burnt alive, 200-500 were killed and more than 20,000 have been displaced.
HRC 50 : Incidents targeting the Amhara community
We are deeply concerned about the mass-scale massacres of civilians in war and non-war zones in Ethiopia as recently reported by Human Rights Without Frontiers.
There is a war in Ethiopia. It started with TPLF attacking the Ethiopian Defense Force of the government of Abiy Ahmed.
In this conflict, Amhara women and children are being killed and their villages are looted both by TPLF and governmental forces.
