As reported by Current Issues Fact Check, a government entity charged with investigating major national events, “it also dressed in Ethiopian fatigues several fighters who fled the battlefield and youths kidnapped in the regional states of Afar and Amhara.”

Uniforms made in the Almeda textile company, in Tigray were used, the fraud was filmed and the images were then sent to international media as a proof of the alleged surrender or capture of members of the National Defense Forces, the organization explained.

The video was widely disseminated almost on par with official information that reported the annihilation of 12 high-ranking officers of the TPLF in Bati and Kemise, two towns in Amhara.

A special operation dealt a severe blow to the group, the government spokesman, Legesse Tulu, announced, who added that “the dead Tigrian army leaders were wanted for treason.”

Tulu assured that “the enemies fled after a devastating defeat”, and called on the Tigray Front to lay down their arms and urged the population to remain alert “to denounce and confront the criminal actions of those who managed to escape.”
