February 10, 2021 (GADAREF) – The Sudanese Armed Forces regained control of about 50 thousand acres of agricultural land in the border area after expelling Ethiopian militiamen.

In a new development on the border between Sudan and Ethiopia, the government army clashed on Wednesday with the Fana militia members in Al-Fashaga area of Gadaref state.

“The Sudan Armed Forces and the Reserve Forces of the 2nd Infantry Division in Gadaref, after fierce clashes on Wednesday morning, managed to retake an area of ??50 thousand acres from the grip of the armed Ethiopian militias and other forces,” a Sudanese military source told the Sudan Tribune correspondent, on Wednesday.

Following several on the Sudanese army in April and June 2020, the head of the Sovereign Council ordered last November his troops to expel the Ethiopian farmers and militiamen from the Sudanese territory.

Ethiopian government officials, for the first time, contested the border agreement between the two countries saying the farmers and their militiamen actually were in disputed areas the two countries have to negotiate.

Sudanese farmers told the Sudan Tribune that these “areas retaken by the army served as a basis for the Amhara militiamen who targetted them.

Muahwiya Osman from the Greater Fashaga called on the army to reestablish its old bases in the area to deter further attacks by the Ethiopian forces.

Osman further added such a move would enable the farmers to cultivate the restored lands for the next season.

  2. Sudanese anti habesha sentiment are new in the region, unlike Somalis whose conflict with habesha is very old one, which is about seven hundreds yrs old or maybe longer.
    Habesha kings used to raid or invade ancient Somali cities, such as coastal city of Saylac/Saila. One of Habesha kings raided city of saylac in middle of 15 century, Saylac is a coastal city from north western Somalia. Probably oromo didn’t have yet conflict with habesha, when Somalis had beef with habesha. Conflict between Habesha and Oromo started after 16th c.

    And with Sudan, their issue with Habesha started during the mahdists era in 1880s, and it began with habesha ally with British against sudanes and other anti colonialist peoples in horn of Africa.
    Ever since sudanese are anti colonialist, anti empiralist, and other hand habesha folks are prodect of white colonialist and colonial leftovers.
    Expect more clash between them.
