Crisis In Ethiopia: What The Media Isn’t Telling You About The War In Tigray
As journalist Rania Khalek of BreakThrough News details, Ethiopia has been in the headlines in recent months as the TPLF (Tigray People’s Liberation Front), a Tigrayan rebel group that ruled the country for three decades, violently seized the northern Ethiopian state of Tigray from the government.
As of early this week, the Ethiopian government had declared a ceasefire. However, the TPLF has continued fighting to expand its control over Tigray’s border areas and threatening to push the war into neighboring countries.
The Western media has largely cheered on the TPLF and demonized the Ethiopian government and its allies, with allegations of ethnic cleansing, intentional famine and even genocide.
The US has gone so far as to place sanctions on the Ethiopian government, a longtime US ally. But, as is usually the case with most wars in geostrategic areas of the world, there’s far more to the story than is being told and a whole lot of misleading information from the mainstream press.
