More than 500 unarmed civilians, mostly Amhara slaughtered.

MAYKADRA (Mai Kadra) is located in the North of Gondar, the North Western region of Ethiopia. Even though Maykadra’s surrounding region was an integral part of Gondar over the millennia, it had been forcefully annexed by the TPLF (Tigray People’s Liberation Front) decades ago, upon its victorious overthrow of the Derg. Following TPLF’s instigation of war with the central government by launching a surprise attack on the Ethiopian National Defense Force, Northern Division, the Federal Government responded with a counterattack. The TPLF was using the Special Forces of Tigray Federal Region and local militia that it built to a formidable force over the last two years since loosing power in Addis Ababa. It is reported that TPLF’s ground forces outnumber the national ground forces. By using Tigrayan turncoats inside the army, TPLF was able to liquidate the unsuspecting Northern Division. In this instance also, TPLF agents selectively massacred Amhara members of the defense forces. The Northern Division has been stationed in Tigray for more than two decades, defending Tigray from a possible attack from the north.

In the Maykadra region, bordering North Sudan, TPLF forces were defeated, being forced to flee from the area. Before they left though, in a premeditated night attack, they slaughtered all non-Tigrayan, mostly Amhara civilian and unarmed residents of the small town. Over 200 bodies were recovered, according to reports. People were stabbed with knives, choked with ropes, beheaded with axes, sliced with machetes, or cut-down with spades.  Apparently, TPLF Special Forces were planning to use tractors to gather the bodies and dump them in a mass grave. They could not finish this task as the victorious army of volunteers and Amhara Special force closed in on them. Survivors of this genocidal attack on the Amhara reported that the killing was done by an organization called Samre that TPLF specifically organized for this purpose. Census data for the fake elections in Tigray were allegedly used to identify ethnicities of residents. There is a need for an independent investigation into this massacre.

The manner of killing (with sharp weapons) and the special unit organized for the purpose are both reminiscent of the Fascist Italian massacre in Addis Ababa. Axes and spades were the main weapons then and the special forces called the Chamisa Negra (Black Shirts) were the perpetrators. Both massacres were committed on unarmed civilians. No wonder the TPLF leaders are called grandsons of Banda (Ethiopian word for traitors/ Ascaris, Native mercenaries of Fascist Italy).


  1. I got this information from my Tigrayan neighbor and wanted to share it. The TPLF junta is preparing to showcase the Eritrean refugees as Eritrean army prisoners of war in Eritrean military uniforms. This misuse of refugees is in violation of human rights and international conventions.

  2. It is a national duty to restore law and order vs those fascist to restore their tyrant leadership. Probably this is one of the worst situation and a shameful act by Junta group, never in the world history. They should be shame of their arrogant act. Urgently, this junta group to be sued by International Criminal Court as they committed genocide & drives people of Tigray and Ethiopian people to unnecessary war.

    In mean time, Ethiopia government shall send a letter to WHO that they need to fire Director General, Ato Tewodros Adane as he didn’t represent Ethiopian nations and he is in a group of fascist TPLF. Immediate action needed.

    Long live to Ethiopia!!

  3. Attention!!!!!

    It appears that Debresion Gebremichael is hiding in a church. Please listen to his interview. In the background, one can clearly listen to “Kidase”.

  4. TPLF — the back Fascists — must be brought before the World Court like the Hutus who committed gruesome genocide on hundreds of thousands of Tutsis. Over their 27 years rule of Ethiopia millions of souls have perished in their hands directly or indirectly. Genocides were committed on Amharas, Agnuaks, Oromos, Somalis, etc. Of all these, the number of Amharas that went missing in a census stands out above the rest. It was reported by the Census chief in Parliament that 2.5 million Amharas could not be accounted for and it wasn’t investigated.
