“Those who rush to aggression are those who do not know what the life of people means,” Eritrean Information Minister Ali Abdu told the BBC.

Ethiopia said it attacked three military bases where rebel groups were being trained. Continue reading »

NAIROBI, Kenya — The Eritrean government said Friday that an attack on its military outposts by neighboring Ethiopia was carried out with the help of the U.S. and meant to divert attention from a decade-old border dispute between the two countries.

Ethiopia said Thursday it carried out a ground assault on the outposts because Eritrea was training “subversive groups” that carried out attacks inside Ethiopia. Continue reading »

 The Ethiopian minority regime (Weyane) launched yet again another open aggression on Thursday 15, 2012 over the southeastern territories of Eritrea, and on Saturday over the northwestern sections near the illegally occupied town of Badme, under a pretext of retaliation for what it termed as Eritrea’s subversive actions. A couple of months ago tourists in the Afar territory of Ethiopia were attacked in a cross fire between Ethiopian troops and an Afar rebel group called ARDUF. ARDUF has been battling the Ethiopian regime for more than two decades for marginalizing the Ethiopian Afars. Its sporadic confrontation has become at times deadly, especially in areas where tourists visit the volcanic marvel of the northern and northeastern Afar territories. Among many of their complaints, lack of equal sharing of the resources of the region and the monopoly of the tour companies by Tigrayans are stressed. Continue reading »

Rome (dpa) – The Italian government on Friday condemned an attack by Ethiopia on neighbouring Eritrea, and appealed to the two Horn of Africa nations to refrain from other violent acts against each other.

Ethiopia said on Thursday it sent troops 16 kilometres into Eritrean territory to attack camps run by “subversive groups.” Ethiopia often accuses Asmara of aiding rebel groups hostile to Addis Ababa. Continue reading »
