Ethiopian Government has been dreadfully carrying out successive and perpetual mass murder, rape, illegal arrest, displacement, burning villages, confiscation of livestock and commercial embargo against the Ogaden civilians after its unruly army defeated by Ogaden Liberation Army in the battle fields.

The Ethiopian regime has intensified its killing spree in Ogaden while the international community is focusing on the situation in Syria.

Ogaden National Liberation Front is condemning this cowardly innocent civilian mass murder in the strongest possible terms.

We are also calling for the International Community, International Organisations, Independent Media and Human Rights Watchdogs to attentively observe the predicament of the suffering Ogaden civilians in the hands of the Ethiopian military.
