We at, are getting a very disturbing news from West Hararghe Zone that 20 children have perished as a result of long starvation campaign by Oromo Police and an ethnic mob in Oromia Region. These horrrific and inhumane concentration and stranding of innocent Somalis is happening as we speak in Wartaadara, Haroo Algee, Milqaayee, Sorooro, Dhaaba in Daru Lebu district and Koorker, Gamoole, Hoyaade, Kora, Ta’oo Ibsaa in Hawi Gudina ditrict.

These same victims’s livestock and their other belongings have been robbed in illegaly by a consortium of Oromo Police and ethnic mob in West Hararge Zone and thier houses burnt to the ground and has no place to turn to. This is very sick! it hast to STOP immediately.

These people who are held in Nazi-like concentration camps and any emergency help in terms of food or medicine has being systemically restricted.

After this long starvation campaign of Somalis in West Hararghe, now the perishing of 20 children who are all under the age of 10 won’t come as a surprise.

This is an unfolding humanitarian catastrophe, we urge the Federal, Oromia and Somali Regional governments to act quickly so as to put this humanitarian mess that has dragged far too long to an end.

These Somali citizen’s human and constitutional rights have been trumped too long with impunity and there is no end in sight. They have been slaughtered in massacres, dumped their bodies in mass graves, raped and depreciated their women, their livestock and belongings confiscated illegally, arrested and tortured while even the children, the elderly and women are not spared.

On the same day the news of this tragedy of the death of 20 kids out of hunger and starvation has reached our news room, we were also getting reports that another 4 innocent Somalis were killed by Qerroo and Oromia police in Hoyadee and Kore localities of Hawi Gudina district in West Hararghe Zone of Oromia Region.

We are also getting reports that the Federal Army was in Hoyadee and Koraa locality but it is not clear why they didn’t act to prevent this to occur and only showed up after the massacre of these innocent Somalis.

The names of the victims killed in Hoyadee and Koraa are:

  1. Shamsi Abdilahi Bile
  2. Omer Aw Mohamed
  3. Harbi Mohamud Mohamed
  4. Khalil ABdulahi Bile

Editor’s Note to all of our steemed readers: JJH is working tirelessly to unearth the human side of these tragic massacress of Somalis in Oromia Region like this and dispell the false notions and narratives created around these victins of ethnic violence.
