Study the Facts and Truth on the Levels of Conflict Disasters and Victims: In the Case of Amhara and Afar-Ethiopia
The objective of this study was to investigate the facts and truth about the levels of displaced, damaged, and victims of the current Ethiopian conflict in general and the Amhara and Afar Regions in particular. The investigations mainly used exploratory qualitative methods and a combination of primary and secondary sources of data. Field surveys, figures, photographs, and cause and effect (fish bone-diagram) analysis supplemented the qualitative data. 382 responses were considered for these investigations from the target area. The study shows that many civilians were killed in the current conflicts between TPLF forces and the Ethiopian government in the Amhara and Afar regions of northern Ethiopia. The investigation shows that the TPLF has killed many innocent people, including civilians in the Amhara and Afar regions, and others have been seriously injured. Due to the TPLF-led forces, the elderly, women, youths, and children might be the first victims of the current situation in Amhara and Afar regions, considering their especially vulnerable position. Damaged and pillaged institutions, towns, and other public organizations such as churches, mosques, market places, educational centers, health centers, and manufacturing industries are affecting Amhara and Afar from all walks of life as well. Because of the distraction of various public institutions, government organizations, and public service centers, millions of Amhara and Afar people faced unemployment and social disruption. This study also shows the various causes, results, and outcomes of the current conflicts from scientific viewpoints using the cause and effect diagram. Finally, the conclusion and the recommendations of the study were incorporated into this study.
