Sloppy Journalism at its Worst

In its “February 12” publication entitled Tigray, Ethiopia”, US-based Magazine, The Week, carries a defamatory story on Eritrea that was apparently cobbled together from dubious sources without minimal verification for factual accuracy and veracity.The article states: “When Abiy (Ethiopia’s PM) sent troops to Tigray to quell what he said was a political rebellion, thousands of Eritrean troops unofficially joined the fight on the side of Ethiopian government forces”.
First off, this portrayal is a gross distortion of the perilous events that unfolded in Ethiopia in the first week of November last year. As it is well known, the TPLF launched on November 3, a pre-emptive, multi-pronged, and massive attack on the entire positions and bases of Ethiopia’s Northern Command. The TPLF’s goal was to neutralize this largest contingent of the Ethiopian Armed Forces and seize its entire weaponry which constitutes almost 80% of Ethiopia’s ordnance.
