TPLF destroys thousands of health facilities in Ethiopia within 5 months and WHO is quiet

 

ADDIS ABABA, DECEMBER 13, 2021 - Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) has destroyed more than three thousand health facilities during its occupation of parts of Afar and Amhara regions in the past five months. In Afar, it destroyed 60 health centers while 40 hospitals, 453 health stations, 1,850 health posts, 4 blood banks and 1 oxygen factory were destroyed in Amhara region.

Dessie Specialized Hospital was established 80 years ago to serve 10 million citizens from Amhara, Tigray and Afar regions. It was the only specialized hospital in east Amhara. Unfortunately, it was looted and destroyed by the TPLF terrorists.

"They have stolen expensive equipment worth millions such as the ventilators used in ICU. We had seven of them. They have stolen all of them. The warehouses were looted. They have taken our anesthesia machines and we cannot conduct surgery anymore.", said Dr. Haymanot Ayele, Director of the Dessie Specialized Hospital.

"We receive 450,000 patients in a year. This was last year's report. We received about 100,000 people for inpatient care. There were 50,000 patients who got emergency care. All of the people's treatment go through laboratory checks but now we do not have the equipment carry that out", added Dr. Haymanot Ayele.

"The enemy invaded eight zones on which it damaged 82 government health offices in addition 40 hospitals, 453 health stations and 1,850 health posts in eight zones, four blood banks and one oxygen factory were made nonoperational. The enemy after stealing what it wants, it destroyed anything that it left behind such as medicines and electronic machines. It was also using the health centers as a trench from which they would attack others", said Abdulkarim Mengistu, Deputy Head of Amhara Health Office.

The Ethiopian Pharmaceuticals Supply Agency also said its Dessie branch which served 27 hospitals and 303 health stations was looted. It said the terrorists looted maternal and child immunization inputs, cold rooms and anything they found in the main warehouse.

Dr. Liya Tadesse, Minister of Health, said last week that more than 2,219 health facilities have been destroyed and said the numbers could grow as new areas get liberated from the terrorist group. She said the Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the regions and other stakeholders, is making an effort to rebuild the damaged health facilities. She also called on all those that are concerned to involve in the reconstruction.


Despite such destruction on health facilities, the World Health Organization (WHO) has remained silent even though it had been outspoken when it comes to health facilities in Tigray. Many are, therefore, led to believe that the Director General of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom, who was one of the founders of the TPLF, is dearly attached to the his TPLF colleagues and is shying away from denouncing their atrocities in Amhara and Afar regions.

"The wanton destruction of Dessie Hospital in Amhara region glaringly testifies that TPLF cruelty has no limits. Razing to the ground a Hospital? This is the most unforgivable crime.We shall remember not only the wicked acts of TPLF but also the deafening silence of the WHO", said Taye AtsekSelassie, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Ethiopia to the United Nations.

EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Tedros’ Misconduct Defiles The WHO & Disrespects His Compatriots

This objective observation alone should be enough to relinquish him of his duties. The longer that he remains in his role, the worse that the WHO and its UN parent organization’s reputation will become. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed an official objection to the misconduct practiced by World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. They drew attention to how he’s consistently abused his high office to meddle in his homeland’s internal and foreign affairs. He’s also accused of continuing to remain a member of the terrorist-designated TPLF that’s responsible for bringing untold suffering upon millions of people in northern Ethiopia as a result of the war that it started in early November 2020. Furthermore, the objection details other examples of Dr. Tedros’ misconduct. For instance, he’s accused of inflating the emergency level in Ethiopia in order to warrant a humanitarian interven

EXCLUSIVE: The Nobel Committee Has A Mistaken Assessment Of PM Abiy’s Commitment To Peace

With all due respect to this prestigious organization, the Norwegian Nobel Committee needs to reassess its understanding of the ongoing situation in Ethiopia. It’s the TPLF, not PM Abiy, that’s responsible for continuing the war. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee Berit Reiss-Andersen said in a statement to AFP that “As Prime Minister and winner of the Peace Prize, Abiy Ahmed has a special responsibility to end the conflict and contribute to peace. The humanitarian situation is very serious and it is not acceptable that humanitarian aid does not get through sufficiently.” This is a mistaken assessment that’s inconsistent with the facts. PM Abiy has consistently worked towards peace in his country but it was victimized by a US-led Hybrid War of Terror waged by TPLF proxies who wanted to seize power at all costs. Even so, the Ethiopian leader still recently made enormous strides towards that end following the TPLF’s c

"The official talk is as if we were in postwar period. But as we speak now TPLF is again brutally attacking our people in Raya and Mai-Tebri. I have received reports that TPLF soldiers massacred civilians in Waja and Addis-kegn villages of Raya", said Belete Molla, Minister of Innovation and Chairman of the opposition party National Movement of Amhara (NAMA). Brook Abegaz, another opposition figure who ran in elections independently in Wollo, said that TPLF forces have already captured northern part of Raya and Wag and he said they have already started building trenches.
