Sudan Accused of Stirring Hornet's Nest, Stealing Ethiopian Land

The military of Sudan has been accused of occupying large tracts of land, looting and killing civilians, in an ongoing border dispute between Ethiopia and Sudan. According to Dessalegn Tasew, the administrator of West Gondar Zone in Amhara, "the borders were entrusted to our Sudanese brothers when the special forces were mobilised to Tigray for the law enforcement operation. Instead they are now wreaking havoc in the region, driven by a feeling of expansionism". The Ethiopian government had sent the army to the Tigray in the north after the state held regional elections in defiance a federal directive to postpone polls. The war started on November 4, 2020.
