Eritrean Salvation Front Attacks A Government Garage In Asmara

In a statement issued today, March 13, 2015, of which Gedab News received a copy, the Eritrean National Salvation Front (ENSF) announced that its armed unit attacked a government garage in Qohawta neighborhood, southeast of the capital city Asmara. ENSF is an Eritrean opposition organization.

According to the statement, the attack was carried out at 8pm on Wednesday March 11, 20015

The attacked garage serves heavy trucks owned by the government’s land transport companies and concerns which are mainly used to haul gold and other minerals from the mining area, mainly from Bisha, the largest mining concession in the country.

The mine is operated by the Bisha Mining company which is jointly owned by the Eritrean government and the Canadian Nevsun Resources. It is not known if the latest attack would hamper its operations.

ENSF stated that its elements destroyed some trucks and retreated to their places safely with one of the attackers sustaining light wounds. It also stated that it has “made all necessary preparations to shift its activities and place of operation to confront the regime inside Eritrea.”

The statement described its latest operation as “a response to the looting of national resources by the regime, including its aggression on the Eritrean people in Arbaate Asmera and Tselot, and suffering it inflicted on the people of Adi Keih lately.” It further explained the ENSF “doesn’t target the helpless Eritrean army but the regime and anyone who supports it.

The statement concluded with a call to the Eritrean Army to “defend its people and protect their resources by standing up to the PFDJ government.

Gedab has not yet confirmed the news independently.

And that many of those whom we instinctively feel sympathetic towards, like the Ethiopian king Emperor Haile Sellassie, were actually world-class tyrants whose transgressions would normally be cases in the World Court.

  • Nitricc

    This was written by some individual and when I read back then in 2012; a knife was going through my heart slashing it. Within a couple of years who finished and who? Slowly and maturely Eritrea is digging herself out of what it seemed the end. PIA is claiming out of it.

    “”Will Meles finish Issaias in 2012?
    There is no doubt that ato Isaias Afeworq is in big trouble, diplomatically lonely, militarily weak and under UN embargo, not able to buy any armaments, tanks and spare parts to defend his sovereign kingdom.
    ato Isaias have lost everything, including 250 thousands of battle hardened young Eritreans who had abandoned him in the last ten years alone. ato Isaias is lonely and desperate on a suicide mission. At this time, there are seventy five thousand young Eritrean refugees in the Afar and Tigrai region of Ethiopia. Another forty thousands are in Israel and one hundred thousands in Sudan.
    Isaias will die a heart broken man, just like Gadaffi. Twenty years ago in 1991, the Americans begged him to be the leader of Ethiopia instead of separating with tiny Eritrea of 3 million people and the the two ports. Isaias could have become ten years ago the king of the Horn of Africa and the king maker of the Arabs with 90 million Ethiopia, billions of aid money, Ethiopian resources and the two great Eritrean ports and the resourceful Eritreans well known in Ethiopia . But Isaias is the worst enemy of himself and he will die as a simple footnote in history.
    Ato Issaias went to the bushes to “liberate Eritrea” in 1966 but Meles joined in 1975. Isais did most of the heavy lifting for 25 years and he carried Meles on his back to the Minelik Palace in Addis but ato Isaias got zero and history will soon forget him. This is call bad political calculation. In politics, one has to cease the moment and ride it fast but Isaias was not smart.
    He lost the political game, soon he will die broke of power, army and a nation.
    Meles is hitting shabbia at the most important crop seeding season Kremt time, because of the complete army mobilization Eritreans will not be able to seed any crops. This will certainly exacerbate the starvation and the already weak food security of Eritrea. By the end of 2012, Eritreans will abandon the Shabbia army in thousands, provided that Meles move in ten and twenty kms inside Eritrea dismantling the notorious shoot-to-kill Eritrean border guards.
    This is called politics. If you do not play it right and do not respect your own brothers and sisters, you lose everything. There is no second opportunity in politics. Soon, Meles will finish Isaias ones and for all.
    Recently, Meles had trained five thousand Ethiopian Afars in a military camp outside of Samara in Dubti who will take over the police and security of port Asab as “Eritrean Afars”. Meles has sent two years ago 200 Ethiopians, mostly Tigraians, to india, china, sweden, britain and USA for military naval training on top of what the Naval college in BahrDar is training to take over as new Ethiopian Naval Forces (ENV) based in Asab in
    the Red Sea. Overall, meles is ready for action but will Meles finish Isaias soon?””

    When someone irresponsible one forces you to break the bottleneck, all is sane and so is this action taken inside Asmara. Destroying the economical roots of PFDJ is the only means to destroy its financial back-up. And those investors, should be reminded for what they are doing by exploiting the already enslaved people. They are paying zero to the owners of the land except the PFDJ junta. Every single action taken in this regard is a warning for their unholly business engagement with the PFDJ junta.

    I appreciate for thise brave people who risk their life but started to to teach a lesson. We were proud for what we did at the airport during the Derge Hunta, Opereration 18 minutes and this is also a sign towards that end-goal. Economic institutes of PFDJ are nothing but exploiters of the Eritrean people and need to be destroyed.

  • T..T.

    “hope” – you made the word hope a difficult word to define. From where you stand today, you do have big evil wishes against the Eritrean people and not against the enemy of the people.

    Indeed, there is no difference between a child and a politically confused person or group of persons. Yesterday, you “hope” along with “selam” were describing the opposition as toothless for not taking action against the enemy of the people, Isayas. Now, you “hope” and “selam” should recognize your confusions in that when the opposition strikes and shows it has teeth and can use them to grind the enemy of the people, you are flipping the truth to tell that the abuser is a politically important person and, therefore, should be untouched.

    Shame, yes shame on you:

    For calling the youth enslavers to be untouched and protected

    For disagreeing with the UN’s and the whole world’s condemnation for all causes of the governmental infanticides at the high seas

    For wanting Isayas’s equipment and machinery to keep running and be used in the trade of the innocent Eritreans’ harvested organs and other illegals

    You just proved that you’re not the hope that gives hope to those people who are shaken day and night by transient waves of hardships and disasters that cannot even be endured for a minute.

    • Hope

      TT,
      If destroying unattended and unguarded Trucks is the way to bring change,you are a lost soul,and
      if you believe that Terrorism of any kind will bring a real change,you are a messenger of hopelessness.
      Good luck !

      • T..T.

        FYI, what Isayas fears the most is the unguarded spots. Because his (Isayas) laws require all the civilians including those over 70 years to carry guns, it is believed there is no any unguarded spot, unlike those days of the Ethiopian occupation. The history of the Eritrean revolution reminds us that the enemy had superiority most of the time. But the liberation forces had to rely on surprise and quick attacks that enabled them to strike the enemy on weak and sensitive points (unguarded) in order to score a winning blow without losing lives. Very much the same like one you are condemning, which in fact deserves to be commended for being carried out without collateral damages.

      How come i find some one with T..T. is blaming me for his conference failure in adi weyane for 15 years.

      I would love to see any of these mining companies to stop and get out from Eritrea , as i believe they do not benefit the Eritrean people, but I can not fall to news that are more of a propaganda news .By the way this news does more help for PFDJ to stay in power. There is still credibility issue also , do you believe on such news ?

      Here is what i do know is true , these opposition groups i mean the armed one, have killed Eritreans on the border that is true and these fallen soldiers families have been noticed on that i say it happened and that is true.

    i agree with you who this Eritrean National Salvation Front doesnt matter BUT what they stand for, DOES MATTER. Would you support them or any other group if their goal is to oust Esayas and continue the same dictatorial rule without mandate from people? I dont think so. Same thing, whether this group or that, what change are their to bring, beside keeping esayas in house arrest. Will they they release the prisoners and fill the jails with others who oppose their rule? Will they continue fighting and bullying neighbor countries like esayas did with ALL neighboring countries? Will they continue the Tigrinya dominance on ALL other minorities? Will they keep telling others what ” biheir” they belong to or not belong to? Will they continue ignoring the plight of our rwfugees specially those who lost their villages and land dince 1967 and onward massacres by commandos and Tor Serawits or do they have practical and honest plan of repatriating our refugees to their villages? Do they believe in decentralized governance of awrajjas with smaller central government or continue the ever reaching hand of Asmara into every thing of people’s life including what food they should it or what language they should teach their kids? Will they continue occupying my properties and yours because we dont have ” mehway gibri” to pay for the years of mengistu nationalizing property from 1975 to 1991. And plus they may come also with additional ” MEHWAY GIBRI” for the years those buildings occupied by sha3biya regime? Will they continue the indefinite national service? Will they keep the status quo as is except for removal of esayas and his cabinet? For these questions and others, we MUST be clear to what this group or others stand for. Yes. Nothing come come worse than esayas regime but coming like esayas regime is a possibility, with players change and few decorations here and there; while the dictatorship continuos for another 2 and half decades. NOW is our time to support THE REAL groups who we believe will meet our minimum demands and expectation. I like this operation, at least it avoided human casualties. As for the trucks hauling gold? Hmmmm. Do we have golds of QAROON in Bisha that needs heavy duty trucks to transport on? If so, we’ll the richest country in the world.

    What a gratifying piece of news in a while from the heart of a wounded nation. Congratulation to the members and fighters and leaders of the Eritrean National Salvation Front. Despite many hurdles and actually sabotages that have been facing it, this organization has proven its role on both political and operational levels. If there was any practical action against the intelligence agents of the regime, or political tasks regarding the national umbrella (ENCDC), its record is, though modest, on the walls to see.
    The fact of the fact of the matter concerning this organization is that it has in its ranks dedicated career-long fighters who refused to abandon their devotion to the cause of their people. Some of them passed away while still struggling such as the late Eyob Biserat, Abed Gebrezadiq, Ahmed Nasser and Dr. Beyene Kidane among many others just to name the recent once. Those who promised to continue their missions have not reneged, and the gallant fighter who did the Asmara operation are just some of them.
    Let me thank Awate.com and other web site for highlighting this opener event.

      Did you say a gratifying news?
      Sir,
      This IS ABOUT DESTROYING AN ECONOMIC INFRA-STRUCTURE,NOT THE security apparatus OF THE PRISON SYSTEM OF THE PFDJ.
      BTW,
      This is a classic case scenario of Terrorist Activity, at least per my understanding or from Eritrea’s situation.point of view.
      Those cowards should do something better but apparently,they cannot get their allowance from the TPLF unless they achieve some bad home work assigned to them by their teachers in Mekele.

            Get lost ya akhber Horrible Parasite and under-cover TPLF ill-wishers of Eritrea and Eritreans!

    the other good news is the heroic olf has blown a bridge in southern ethiopia and many soldiers have died. i think this is a tit for tat approach between those who want to make chaotic eritrea and ethiopia.
    this days one feels depressed hearing news of violence and unrest around the world. if one goes by these reports it seems we human beings only know to hate one another. the world is in flames because of bad politics and politicians . while the ordinary person just only wants to provide bread to his family and live a decent life. be it religious ideology or ethnic they don’t top priority of the average person.
    what is this awate?

    • Kokhob Selam

      I have the same feeling except to PFDJ gangs. why is that? May be it is because they don’t have any reason to be in this world. there are dirty politicians and of course most of politicians are dirty. but they have reason, say it religious, national etc. that they consider it as reason. But PFDJ is against nature so they are not suppose to be in this universe. I might be wrong but that is me. if there is someone who thinks they have some sort of reason, let him explain to me kindly.

      • sara

        ato kokob, say what you want do what you can but there is nothing i can say to you , except alah yehdik/ye’efik wo yekfrlek.
        abi is a proud ethiopian and he at least is honest and tells us both pros and cons of his country and i respect him for that.— but you no..no, i want be like you and say thing that is not appropriate to an elderly person..

        • Kokhob Selam

          My words against PFDJ hurts you but PFDJ’s crime didn’t hurt you. so you pray for me “aalah yehdik/ye’efik wo yekfrlek. ” thank you. but what kind of Alah do you believe, is your Alah that accepts all those crimes of PFDJ? My Allah even don’t allow the illegal marriage leave alone the illegal national leadership.

          Sara that is why Allah said “say Lekum dinekum we leye din” you have your own belief and I have my own. you don’t worship on what I worship and I don’t worship in what you worship.

          My question is why is PFDJ there? what the hell has brought this group? if we don’t answer it we can solve the main reason and we will keep saying IA make this and that and try to reform which is nothing. We must take responsibility and say the truth why the group was created ( the worst enemy of nature ) ALLAH YESAMIHIC why you are not understanding me?

      • Ted

        Kokob Selam,” if there is someone who thinks they have some sort of reason” if anything they keep “Eshi goytay” mercenaries at bay until we Eritreans got our act together to fight PFDJ mano a mano.

        • Kokhob Selam

          I still didn’t get the answer from you. I don’t know who is “Eshi goytay” but if there is, he must be in between this nature looking something. my problem is PFDJ why is still around? why did we make such a big mistake to create such extra devil group. just give me one reason what nature will benefit from present of this group if any. I am only asking kindly, with out blaming others, some one getting responsible for creating such a mess. I know they are burning their own body and most of them are not around and some have saved their life blaming one man IA while they were the once who create it and build it.

          The people are trying to eliminate this group fastest possible but even if they don’t nature can’t hold against it soon or later they will disappear (some genuine people might be paid ) . evidence count the leaders in prison, those outside the country and those who are killed by their own party. the reason is because PFDJ is against nature. I am not talking about religion, not tribe or Ethnic or any thing that is within the nature. I am talking about devil and beyond. Devil has been allowed till the day of judgement (according to all religions). But why PFDJ has to be around? what did we do to face this fate? why?

          • Ted

            Kokob, You are getting nearer to the answer . Why why why? there are more questions. The million dollar question is why Eritreans in the country allowed this to happen, and equally worth question, why why why the opposition is comatose ( can’t communicate with the silent majority).”phobia of change” wrong wrong wrong. There is no such a thing “phobia of change” in Eritrea but fear of the unknown. Our people is not equipped with the knowledge what now and what next. There are over 30 opposition groups coming and going with their own mission with ” i want this list” . Do you blame the silent majority for getting confused let alone the harestay in the country whole livelihood depend on the existence of functioning government..

            ” I don’t know who is “Eshi goytay”” they are the same people who confused and frustrated Eritreans. Them aside, the most important thing is “Eritrean perception” meaning- the way that Eritreans understand the current political land escape. Eritreans perceive they are the victim of weyane invasion. They perceive weyane unlawfully occupy their territory, they perceive weyane work to weaken Eritrea. Politicians use peoples perception and some times, easy said than done, try to shape perception for their advantage. The Eshi Goytay people went against this common knowledge , the Eritrean anti-weyane perception, by joining Weyane group, a lot of them.

            That is why Eritreans live the way they are. They perceive the world is conspiring against them including their own who claim to lead them to freedom. I have my own ? Why why why Eshi Goytay?

          • Kokhob Selam

            so I am getting nearer and yours may help me asking “Why why why Eshi Goytay?” just to find my self frustrated no where to find “Eshi Goytay” except PFDJ supporters. Okay, if that will help.

          • Ted

            kokhob,” except PFDJ supporters.” are you try to hurt my feelings. You are the supporter of PFDJ by default. Eshy Goyay are the gift from heaven keeps on giving for PFDJ. It is classic case of self deception illness which must be cured first and foremost. There are many in this forum who where the pioneer of this perpetual self deception who sat next to the throne of late MP Melese Zenawi, looking down on Shaebia with sadistic grin ” we got you by the balls”. Little did they know, they are offending and hurting the Eritrean people( the golden goose) for their vindictive and shortsighted ambition. The rest is history. Ask them they may have a thing or two helpful pointers for your illness, as they have the bruises and scars to prove they were in your predicament.

  • Semere Andom

    The patience of Eritrean people, the Eritrean opposition that dissolved its armed wing after independence, the peaceful and prophetic words of Seyoum O early on all attest to the peace loving people, the innate non- violent leaning of Eritreans. But when you are pushed to your limits, when your future is in danger then violence becomes one option. And the latest 3 military attacks are an indication of the angst of the people and the opposition.
    Every one, whether willing only paid criminals are serving the dictator and it is time that they sabotage the tyrant whenever they are. M, Gladwell in his latest book writes that sometimes “weakness” can be strength and “strength” can be weakness.
    Every civil servant, every guard, every solider, every nurse, every driver must sabotage the system this way the imagined danger can be averted and the real danger, PFDJ can be removed.

    To make the presence of BBC to the regime (Isayas) distasteful and to prove to the world that if it was not for the Eritrean opposition’s forbearance, internal wars in Eritrea can flare up any minute, any time.

    Suffice it that the regime has failed to pass the stress test conducted by the BBC (as reconfirmed by the 37 witnesses in the streets of Asmara).

    Suffice it that the opposition units proved to the BBC that they can walk in and walk out freely any time any place in Eritrea including Asmara.

    Suffice it that the opposition proved that it can defeat the regime through protracted war but chose to rely on the principle of isolating the regime and weakening it till it peacefully surrenders.

    Suffice it the turn of tides and chain of events this week starting from the confrontations of Adi Keyh to the Asmara’s Qohawta attack must have embarrassed the regime and frustrated its propaganda of change in its style of criminality.

    • Hope

      Dear Mr/Ms ill-Wisher T T,
      Where have these “Opposition Units” been for the last 23 yrs or so?
      What we need is NOT destroying an unattended/unguarded garage or killing an innocent Warsay sleeping in his Camp–if you have one(you seem that you have no warsay or Yika’lo victim at home)–,but targeting the real Target that needs to be targeted.
      Can you do that badly needed job,rather than fantasizing behind a computer in a comfort zone?

      • Saleh Johar

        HOPE, Eritrea is a small country with a small population.The degree of separation is probably three or four. Leaving your emotional blackmail aside, do you think there is no Eritrean except you who have a relative in Eritrea? Don’t you think everyone has a relative? If you do, why do you state, “it seems you have no warsay or Yoka’lo victim at home”! Now, all the warsay and Yikaalo are victims, right? How do you know about “killing an innocent Warsay sleeping in his camp”? Why are you surprised that a rope, however, strong, snaps, and finally there might be an all out civil war if the regime continues in its path? Not liking this scenario is not enough to prevent the tragedy. What do you have to say to the regime to prevent such escalation that might harm the general populace, not only warsay and yikaalo?

        • Hope

          Ustaz Saleh,
          Thanks for your kind advice.
          -Please check what that certain TT said about Hope!
          -No blackmailing here but expressing my serious opinion
          -I was just expressing exactly that no Eritrean to my best knowledge is spared from being a victim in all aspects but only those who are not victims one way or another would wish a direct civil war among Etitreans as we have had enough of it ….,
          -I categorically reject any kind of violence as a means of change in Eritrea including ” Destroying unguarded Civilian Garage and Killing or kidnapping a sleepy Warsay” in his Camp, under any circumstance!
          -thete is a better and safer way of targeting the targets that need to be targeted, not in a cowardly way!
          Beyond that, YES,indeed, what the so called the ” Salvation Front” did was a TERRORIST act’….

            Yes Hope, I guessed where you are coming from. Here is a question for you: considering what the PFDJ is doing to the people, (which I think you agree is more serious and more violent than torching a garage), would you be fair and say “the PFDJ regime is terrorist”? Your reply to that would help me if I have to engage you or just….

          • Semere Andom

            Ustaz/Memhir/Affendi/mualem. Astemari//professorre Saleh;
            Yes indeed/aman biaman the Eri people are suffering,but, BUT, lakkin/gn the answer to this suffering is not violence, the anwer/jewab/mels to suffering is zete and.Yesus/Jesus getta new so we have to be peacefull give the second check. Vi begts violence. SIMPLE. No erhab/terrorism gave way to SELAM, Eritean people need PEACE/SELAM that is why you see lots of girls my nieces are named selam.
            THis acct is cowardly!!!!! NO more no less()
            My nick is Hope and I am not going to HOP to terrorism , never? ever!. Things will solve themselves by zete, God/Allah the almighty is peaceful and merciful
            Ask this question? who dies, not PFDJ, but poor people, my cousins, yoru cousins, Sem Andom’s cousins(If he still has cousins in Eri), I heard he shipped them all to Dedebit that is why her writes all this CRAP after eating the Canadian crup

            Dear Mr.Dedebit Trained TPLF Cadre!
            Kab kedemkie entay kumneger keytizareb?
            Aren’t U the one and the one, who belittled the best,the strongest and the miraculous Liberation movementArmy in the world,which won against ALL Odds?
            And still discrediting the Vets of the vets and selfless Tegadelti, who sacrificed their entire lives,not just their Precious Youth age while U were enjoying the UNCHR provided rations and free Education at Khartoum University… and now , double-enjoying the Canadian provided comfortable life and still belittling the selfless Tegafelti,who knew and did nothing wrong but dying for others?
            Who the heck in his/her right mind( Eritrean) is going to take U seriously?
            Good luck with your stairs and jokes,Sir’

          • Semere Andom

            Come on now. Man up and take a joke.
            Also if I was trained in Dedebit when did I go to Uni of Khartoum
            And get some “libi” and do not use the word “kedemti”, what do you think you are doing in the USA, you are toiling and laboring (tikidem).But cus your PFDJ you have problems with language like they confuse the workd “jihad”. Next time you talk to cousin Sal, ask him what the word Jihad mean.
            Until you man up and wise up enjoy Nitricc and dawit

            Ustaz Saleh,
            I thought that is why we fighting the PFDJ!
            But your analogy would be unfair!,Sir!
            My point is clear:
            We or they should target the Terrorists,NOT the civilian infrastructure!
            Why R U twisting things here?
            My opinion,concern and comments are crystal clear with no ambiguity!
            Do you believe that or think that you are a better witness or a worse victim than the ORIGINAL ones?
            If so, U R naive!
            The armed Opposition Units should create a specially
            well trained elite Unit that is able to target the specific target that needs to be targeted, not a Unit that acts randomly like a Terrorist Unit!
            Did your friend SAAY use the term:” Surgical Removal”?
            I ‘m his student.,FYI!

          • T..T.

            Hope,
            You are for sure stupidifying our discussions and concerns about the sufferings of our people. You are on the wrong side.

          • Hope

            Sir,
            The most stupid people are those,who support the Terrorists and their Terrorist Acts of any kind!

          • guest

            Brother Hope..I didn’t read about killing a sleepy Warsay. Did you?

          • Hope

            Dear guest( can U and Guest change nicks?)
            Would u believe me if I tel U that I have a cousin and nephew ,who had that fate?

          • guest

            Sorry Hope. I meant on this report of garage attack…i didnt read about killing a sleepy Warsay..did you? Maybe in other website? But specifically on this garage attack?. If there did kill a sleepy warsay in the garage, you have my support.

          • Hope

            Dear guest,
            There was a solar news piece reported by Ghedeb news few months ago by a certain anonymous group claiming to be an Eri Armed Unit killing some Warsay around Eri-Sudanese border… when Haile TG congratulated the Group for attacking the only life-line of Eri Economy….as he believes that destroying the Economic Infrastructure of Eritrea is the main way of destroying the PFDJ!’

          • Hope

            Solar news should read as similar news,please!

          • guest

            Merhaba Hope Hawwey.
            first i’m relieved that NO A SLEEPING WARSAY was killed or targeted in this ” Government Garage Attack ” in Qohawta, Asmara. Though i dont recall of reading similar news in the past, i agree with you no Eritrean should be targeted by the opposition fighters just because that person happened to be serving in EDF. We all know they are rounded out of their houses and conscripted against their will. However, that doesnt mean they have free licence to kill or rape other Eritreans or shoot them at the back by the borders because some Eritreans tried to cross the border. In other words, the warsay life should be protected as mush as that warsay protects other Eritreans life. His/ her soul is not better or worse than any other Eritrean’s soul. Oppositions also will benefit if they can make clandestine communication with the high rank leaders of the soldiers and create some unwritten arrangements on how to avoid clashes in any intended operations. They know how to do it. They used to do it even in the 60s and 70s of last centuries. We have good examples of hoisting Eritrean flag in Expo Asmara in 1969, the confiscation of about 70 rifles from a police station in Asmara early 1970s without a single fire shot, and the liberation of prisoners from Senbel and Addi Khuala detention centers mid 1975, and many many other examples..Again..i agree with you Hope Hawwey, we have seen enough bloodshed of eritrean/ eritrean shauvanism since 1964 till today and that must stop, without blaming or exonerating one side over the other. And God forbid, if such incident happen, it should be dealt with as an isolated incident. It should never be business as usual. Enough is enough. And again, sorry for the loss of your cousin and nephew.They could have been relatives of anyone of us.

  • Nitricc

    hahahaha oh, oh, aren’t those the Muslim armed groups? okay now i agree with Eshi-Goytay crowd. TPLF needs to fuel their tanksn start heading north. The should be in Asmara ASAP. lol what did they do? burn a couple of out of service trucks?
    I don’t know it is true but i heard TPLF pays incentive to groups who claimed they attack the Eritrean government, that was when Bereket Simon was in charge of the good for nothing oppositions. hey may be this is just hype to get paid by the stupid weyane.

    • Kokhob Selam

      didn’t they say that is “a response to the looting of national resources by the regime, including its aggression on the Eritrean people in Arbaate Asmera and Tselot, and suffering it inflicted on the people of Adi Keih lately.” ?

      the question you will ask I thought was – are they coming from Dedebit? where is their base ,those toothless fighters?

    • Saleh Johar

      Nitricc, what’s wrong with you? Muslim armed group? What does that mean? I suggest you stay silent when you have the urge to comment on stuff you do not have a clue about. The current leader of the ENSF is Dr. Habte Tesfamariam, a vetarn of the struggle, if you care to know. Please be careful when commenting unless you have knowledge about the subject.

      • Hayat Adem

        And this note is to Nitricc, lol! He must have heard it before infinite times. It is him. He will keep on telling you the truth the way a truth-teller tells it. Nothing changes until something changes. “What is wrong with you?” ! What has ever been right with him?

        • Semere Andom

          Hayat:
          I said this kid must be skipped doing population census, and this comment of his proves me right

      • Semere Andom

        Hi Saleh:
        Please keep the kid in the leash. I am the beneficiary of Dr. Habte Tesfamariam’s work on a different area; Education.
        Dr.Habte is as you said a veteran and well-repspected Eritrean except of course by this kid and PFDJ. Dr. Habte is doing it again, struggling for freedom.
        This news and the others we heard before the start and slowly the fire “sowfa yeshteAl”, sorry this half Dedebit spoke a Muslim Eritrean language.
        I know we debate peaceful or armed struggle or whether Ethiopia should help or not, but you had a good answer for the former and you said to the effect of: “I cannot tell people use armed struggle and die while I am here, but I cannot give the second cheek.” , this means the people in the ground will decide, whether to follow martin King’s way or awate’s way

    good news but to the army time must be given to stand with people after that the army should be considered as enemy. Starting from the generals.

      A destroying an unguarded Civilian Garage is good news?

      • sara

        what do you expect from those pretending to be one of us “eritreans” if they can or their wish could be fulfilled they would be happy to wipe the whole populace . remember they used to say eritrean land but not its people. the good thing it it want happen as long as we remain steadfast against all evil towards our young country.
