@OromoProtests Wadessa near Ambo ( West Shawa). The conflict started three days ago in Galan-Wadessa village and spread to other vicinities. Soldiers began beating young men singing during Timket celebration chasing them through villages. Farmers asked them to leave their children alone. But the soldiers continued their harrassment into yesterday and shot 3 young men. Farmers then were enraged telling the military they won’t sit by and watch while they hunt their children like wild animal. This led to gun battle between farmers and local militia on one side and the Agazi forces on the other. Two farmers and three soldiers were killed. Also 4 soldiers and several farmers sustained wound. This is what has happened yesterday. It has not been possible to details of what has happened today except the conflict has continued and death toll from both side is expected to be much higher. Sources have reported seeing scores of military vehicles burned in Diki village located Galan-Wadessa and Ambo city. ( Similar conflict is going in Gindabarat, and I will get to you with details from there)
Note: this conflict might seem slowing down, but in reality its moving into a new phase. Unless the regime withdraws the military forces from villages and towns, the ongoing harassment of youth and sexual assault against women is going to fuel further escalation.
