War updates from Amhara Region, Ethiopia - April 30th to May 12th, 2024

May 16, 2024


In recent weeks, fighting between Amhara Fano freedom fighters (Fano) and Prosperity Party regime joint forces (regime forces) has continued in various parts of Amhara Region, Ethiopia. Joint regime forces include the Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF), state militias and riot dispersal forces. The situation in the Central Gonder and South Gonder Zones has been particularly volatile, with intense fighting on multiple fronts and reports of large-scale atrocities against unarmed civilians. Throughout the region, the regime is using increasingly brutal tactics to suppress the Fano movement, and civilians are bearing the brunt of the violence with reports of extrajudicial killings, physical assault, arrests and harassment. Mobilization by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) in areas bordering northern Amhara Region has also raised tensions in the area particularly following forced mass displacement of Amhara residents in North Wollo and Wag Hemra zones in April 2024. In recent, weeks regime forces have also continued profiling and arrests of ethnic Amhara residents and Orthodox Christians in Addis Ababa city.
