toronto – Fresh fighting is reported between Fano forces and the Ethiopian Defense Forces in the eastern and western areas of Gojjam. Residents of both areas confirmed the news to the DW Amharic service.

Alemnew Mekonnen, a DW Amharic reporter based in Bahir Dar, spoke to residents of the Feres Bet and Dembecha areas of Gojam. In Zeleka, a rural village, at least four civilians were injured after the fighting. One woman was reportedly killed by shrapnel. The injured are taken to the “Wad” health center.

Fighting in the area began about four days ago, witnesses in the area said.

“The Defense Forces entered the Denbecha district, Zeleka Kebele, on the night (of May 26) and fighting began around 6 a.m. Heavy weapons were fired at the town and residents began to leave the town , so we slept all day,” residents told DW. Amharic reporter.

Another resident of Amanuel town, East Gojjam, said there was fighting in two directions on Sunday and Monday. There was an exchange of fire for two days. A government office was damaged in the area, but the report does not specify whether there were any casualties during the two days of fighting. The witness spoke to the source on condition of anonymity for security reasons.

A resident of Feres be in West Gojjam said there was a fight on Tuesday, but relative calm was later restored. However, neighbors indicated that there is still tension.

Massive government forces deployed in the region

This week, the Ethiopian government reportedly deployed more than 90,000 newly trained government forces, in addition to military support from regions, mainly from the Oromia region.

Fano forces in Gojjam imposed restrictions on vehicle mobility in an apparent move to disrupt the deployment of government forces in the area. Latest reports indicate that Fano forces have temporarily lifted the restriction because farmers need essential supplies for their agricultural activities.

The extended state of emergency will end in a couple of days. Contrary to government claims that Fano forces are no longer a threat, heavy fighting is reported in Gondar, Shewa and Wollo. Fano’s forces continue to release video footage that appears to indicate that government forces continue to lose battles. Ethio News reported on Thursday that the Ethiopian Defense Forces were conducting aerial surveys in many areas of the Amhara region.
