Amhara Region News Today 

This week the Amhara regional administration claimed that more than five thousand Fano soldiers had surrendered after the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum for them. Since media and activists are unable to visit the location, the allegation has not been independently confirmed.

Nonetheless, Ethiopian local media sources report on ongoing military operations across the area. There have been reports of fierce fighting in Wollo, Gondar, Gojjam, and Shoa. Major military wins are being claimed by Fano troops.

There were also allegations of a gunfight on Friday in Bahir Dar, the provincial capital. According to a news report published on DW Amharic’s Telegram channel, city dwellers reported an hour-long firefight that broke out between 1 and 2 p.m.

There have been reports of heavy fighting in the Dega Damot district’s West Gojjam zone for many days earlier this week. Drone strikes were used by government troops. Residents of the region were referenced by VoA Amharic in a story published on Thursday, which claimed life due to a drone assault that occurred on Wednesday. The exact number of assault victims is yet unknown, however.

Numerous local sources have reported that there is active fighting going on in numerous parts of the Amhara region.

As it has done ever since declaring a state of emergency in August of this year, the Ethiopian Federal government remained silent in response to the most recent violence between Fano and his soldiers.

Human rights organizations have established that hundreds of people have died in the area since the conflict began around six months ago, and the Ethiopian government is suspected of committing crimes against humanity and war crimes.
