ONLF: We will work with the Ethiopian Opposition Groups to fight against the regime

ONLF Fighters



By Ahmed Abdi

The Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) will increase its military and diplomatic efforts in part of liberating the occupied land of Ogaden region, we really congratulate our army for their victory over the Ethiopian Security Forces, ONLF Chairman , Mohamed Omar Osman said Sunday.

Speaking at an annual executive meeting in the United Kingdom, Mr. Osman said we are planting "tree of the freedom" for our blood and sent his condolence to the families who are losing their sons and daughters especially the fallen heroes among the Ogaden national Liberation Army (ONLA).

He said Ethiopia could not solve the conflict of the Ogaden militarily and she understood that for long, she wanted to sit with the ONLF in a bid to end the conflict through dialogue, but instead kidnapped the same men that were facilitating the talks.

He reiterated that ONLF would continue to fight until a political solution for the Ogaden cause is reached.

ONLF deputy head of community and Ethiopian affairs Hassan Moalim said Ethiopia will disintegrate up to 15 nations very soon as it follows the same fate of Yugoslavia.

Attending 4-hours meeting via Skype Mr. Moalim explained the current situation of Ethiopia in details and recommended the ONLF leadership to strength the relations that the group has with the Ethiopian opposition groups including Oromo Liberation Front, (OLF) Sidama Liberation Front, ( SLF) , Benishangul People's Liberation Movement (BPLM), Afar and Gambella liberation fighters.

" It is our obligation to work with all Ethiopian Opposition Groups to speed up the change that our nations need," said Moalim. " And we will offer the kind of support they need from our side." "When we cooperate with each other , the outcome is beneficial for either parties."

Recent ONLF military gains

Fighters from Ogaden National Liberation Army or ONLA engaged with the Ethiopian Security forces early this week ahead of planned Ethiopian Defense visit.

The fighting took place at Sagag District and Suban-balal and Bod'ano, the outskirts of the Southern Ogaden town of Gode. The Ethiopian Minister of Defense Siraj Fegassa along with Ethiopian Generals, who was on visit in the region particularly Gode summarized their visit and immediately departed the region.

According to Ogaden portals, ONLF fighters wounded dozens and killed 42 Ethiopian Security forces better known as Liyuu Police or Special Police including three Shaleqa, i.e. majors, this rank is acquired only after the proven performance of many killings.

Residents of Gode were reportedly forced to bury the deceased Security forces and civilian cars were also confiscated to transport wounded Ethiopian soldiers to the Gode town.

Another fighting erupted today at Eelo-Obo, in the province of faafan aroundthe Capital city of Jigjiga.

Today's fighting is said the rebel fighters captured Eelo-Obowithout much resistance. But casualties of today's fighting yet remain unknown, according to local news site , Qorahay Media.

The ONLF lost an army commander , Mustafe Haybe, and several fighters in the fight as well as IleysTV journalist , who was a former Radio Xoriyo also known as Radio freedom reporter named Mohamed Dawil.

Government-run site published images of killed journalist and his cameraman. The images appeared to show the use of severe torture.

It is not clear the strategy behind ONLF's recent full-scale offensive against Ethiopian soldiers positions-more than 5 provinces in Ogaden ,however, it wascontrary to what Mr. Fegassa was told by regional President Abdi Mohamoud Omar (Abdi-Qawane),to Mr. Fegassa, who showed asight of dismay before his departure.

The Ogaden conflict is regarded one of the longest wars in the history of Africa. More than 500, 000 people have died, and more than a million have fled from the region.There are 100,000 Ogaden refugees in Kenya and 3,000 in Yemen, of whom 2,500 are registered with UNHCR in Sanaa. Around 100 families from Ogaden live in Al-Kharez Refugee camp in the South of Yemen, registered with UN as refugees from Somalia.

Human rights Watch has accused the Ethiopian government of systematically cracking down on media ahead of the may 2015 election.

ONLF was founded in 1984, and it has been engaging army struggle with the Ethiopian troops stationed in Ogaden since 1994, after the Ethiopian government cracked down its members following after the first ever legitimate Ogaden Parliament overwhelmingly voted yes for self-determination.

Ogaden borders Djibouti,Oromia, Kenya and Somalia . The people are predominantly ethnic Somali and Muslim. The region was Italian and English-colony but in 1954, the English handed over to Ethiopia.

    The weyane ethnocratic style leadership easily could bring to this, I personally know ethiopia in two fashions, the derg one and the weyane as well. Analyzing both, i can state that the differences among the people been highlighted by weyane since she adopted the federal system based on ethnic line, i remember was easy to listen in addis-abeba raound in the cafè's new feelings of dominance of one's ethnic language against another. In bars when oromo programme was starting, the tigrayans and amharas was leaving the room..and viceversa..As an outsider was curious to see this scenes of people who once was used to see programmes together..

  5. Ethiopia and Ogaden Peace Talk Resumed Today in Nairobi, Kenya

    PEACE talks between the Ethiopian government and ONLF has officially resumed in Nairobi, said Abdirahman Mahdi, ONLF head of foreign Affairs.

    Speaking with the BBC Somali Service, Mahdi said the objective of their talk with the Ethiopian government is to end the conflict of the region and to get the Ogaden Somalis for their right of Self-determination.

    The Ethiopian delegation led by the defense minister Siraj Fegassa and ONLF’s led by Abdirahman Mahdi held a third round of peace talk on Monday.

    Former Kenya Defense Minister, Senator Yusuf Haji and Igad’s Ambassador Mohamed Abdi Afey are acting as mediators of the ONLF-Ethiopia peace-talk.

    Kenya-brokered peace talks between ONLF and Ethiopia stalled in October 17, 2012 following ONLF’s refusal to accept a pre-condition imposed by Ethiopian negotiation team, which was a violation to the initial agreement.

    The ONLF was founded in 1984 and it has been engaging with armed struggle against the Ethiopian troops stationed in Ogaden ever since the government cracked down its parliament members after they overwhelmingly voted yes for self-determination in 1994.

  12. Well said Banda Geday - the Fascist Boot licking Askaris will always be the humiliated ass and feet kissers of their Italian masters. It is this permanent humiliation that makes them see who they really are in the mirror that is Ethiopia they cannot stop themselves from looking. They hate Ethiopia with all their existence because they hate themselves for who they really are. Ethiopia will never disintegrate. ONLF is a paper tiger. Worthless in the battlefield and exists only because the internet exists. The internet that allows a few Ass-hat Askaris to pretend to be ONLF and spew useless wishful thinking of disintegrating Ethiopia and none existent military victories. The reality is that not only is Ethiopia in full control of the Ogaden, Ethiopia also runs most of Somalia proper. Why else would the residents of Hargeisa, Somaliland participate in the fund-raising for the GERD dam building on the Blue Nile? Why else is the President of Puntland Ethiopian. Why can't the Parliament in Moqadisho make a move without the approval of Addis Ababa? Ethiopia owns Ogaden but also runs Somaliland, Puntland, Galmudug, Jubaland and controls Moqadisho via a puppet government. To go even further... the President of Djibuoti is himself an Ethiopian, who has made it no secret his desire to politically, socially and militarily integrate Djibouti with Ethiopia. Dream on Askaris!! Dream on!! Eritrea is on the precipice of complete disintegration. Worry about your own!!

  15. The word Banda was given to thos who were soldiers when the Italians colonised Eritrea for over 60 years the is not new it was also the fate of the indians ...but what idn't get is do you also consider Atse Yohannes who sided with the English to kill Atse Tedros..a Banda? At least the Eritreans were colonised what is your " historical excuse? Jart?.

    What is also funny is people like you who call Eritreans Bandas forget the fact that it is the Eritreans who came to your aid when your TPLF needed a helping hand..ofcourse you can claim the same I dont have a problem with that...it is also the Eritreans who finished the largest army in Africa at the time...I for one is the witness to that..and help you to get into the helm of 4 kilo..fast forward few years it is all fogoten and you accuse us of everything under the sun....sory but we are what we are ..we are the cam do people and we are also not your enemy as you put it...we were once blood brothers
    .meaning the Eritreans blood spilled from shree to guna ask your relatives but now that is all history...worest yet your keens desecrated the the burial ground of thos samenheroes and heroines whom supported you in your fight to be free...but when you play with woth thos who are dead karma will get you...ill stop.here Jart wish you a nice life...and leave Eritrea alone otherwise history will repeat itself again.
