Aftermath Of War In Amhara Region's Historical Wollo Province

HAIK, ETHIOPIA - JANUARY 12: Bed frames sit in a room at the Haik Health Center damaged by artillery fire on January 12, 2022 in the Haik, Ethiopia. When the TPLF occupied the city, the Haik Health Center was looted and suffered significant damage. A health official at the Health Center stated ultrasound machines, x-Ray machines, computers, laundry machines, mattresses and the blood glucose machine were all removed and shipped back to Tigray during the occupation and that the cost of looted infrastructure and damage to the facility to date was 44 million Ethiopian birr ($887,167 USD). Haik is one of several towns and cities along the A2 road through the Wollo region that was occupied by the TPLF during its invasion of the Amhara region that started in July of 2021. Some of these cities were occupied for almost five months before they were liberated by unified forces of the Ethiopian Government as they pushed the TPLF back towards the boundaries of Tigray. The A2 road runs north to south and stretches from Addis Ababa to Mekele. In July of 2021 the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) invaded the Amhara and Afar regions after the Ethiopian Government called for a unilateral cease-fire after 8 months of war. As the TPLF invaded the regions, they committed numerous atrocities along with large scale looting and destruction of resources in particular in the Amhara and Afar regions. (Photo by J.
