Djibouti accuses Eritrea-hired ‘mercenaries’ of crimes

Djibouti on Sunday accused neighboring Eritrea of using mercenaries to destabilizing the situation in the country.

“Armed mercenaries serving the Eritrean government are terrorizing civilians in northern Djibouti on the border with Eritrea,” Interior Minister Hassan Omar Mohamed said in a statement.

He accused these “mercenaries” of stealing food from Djiboutian civilians at gunpoint and blocking roads to prevent medical and humanitarian supplies from reaching the affected areas.

Mohamed went on to accuse the militants of kidnapping young Bedouins in northern Djibouti and forcibly taking them to Eritrea where they would be recruited against their country.

Djibouti, the minister said, will not allow its social peace to be undermined by a group of “saboteurs.”

The Anadolu Agency could not immediately obtain comments from the Eritrean government on the claims.

Relations between Djibouti and Eritrea have been tense since 2008 when they two neighboring came to the brink of war over control of Ras Doumeira, a border region.

Eritrean eventually pulled out from the area after mediation from Qatar, whose peacekeepers have since been deployed in the area.

    • Dear tes
      You are just a lair with no credit. You are putting your mind in two legs. You oppose in xxawate.com now you support here. Are you out of your mind? Where is the sovereignty issue.

  9. Instead of blame shifting why don’t you address the real problem facing your country. Your people are drawing
    and freezing in the Mediterranean sea. How many countries Eritrea has invaded in 25 years ? all four of its
    neighbors And Djibouti is yet to invade any country since gaining its independence. The real enemies are not
    your African neighbors, but poverty and ignorance which is fueling these conflicts.

    • Abdi stop hallucinating talk about the topic or are you high as a kite on khat like your infidel leaders keep disgracing your self, get real get a life!!!

  10. I always find it amusing how the Anadolu Agency (Turkish media) always has access to Djiboutian, Ethiopian and Somali officials that love nothing more than to scapegoat Eritrea for their numerous internal issues that predate Eritrea’s independence (such as this rebel group in the story) but this agency never has access to Eritrean officials.

    Let’s call this article for what it is: A slanderous hit job. It was written intended to hurl mud at Eritrea’s name. The reporter didn’t even inform its readers that Djibouti has been battling this rebel group because of ethnic Somali Isaa clan political dominance that has marginalized the Afars. Nor did they inform its readers that this rebel group was established before the independence of Eritrea.

    Really ashamed of Turkish media in the region. It’s very anti-Eritrean due to Ankara’s political, religious and economic objectives in the region.

  11. Tiny Djibouti is learning the blame game from its giant handlers. But it is going to be suicidal for it in the long run! When all those handling it now are gone, there will always be Eritrea next door. You might have some short term satisfaction by sabotaging Eritrea for the benefit of outsiders but in the long term, you better be ware tiny-mini djibouti. You will reep what you are sowing. Along with your handlers of course!!

  12. kikik as if eritrea is agiant country,,,amed beduket yiskal ale ethiopiawi,,,,,u life time enslaved fellwo u will be vanished slowly byt surely,,,,djoubuti is coming to its motherland slowly,,,,,and i know what makes u mad ,,,,,the gimel atetubet things has hurted u very well,,and that is good ,,and will continue that way

  13. I always wondering those Eritrean who support the a thuggish government of Isayas Afworki. A government don’t care for the death and suffering of his own people. The people of Eritrea are dying in the Sea, Sinai, Libya and other corners of the world that they are trying to liberate themselves from slavery in their country. Instead of working hard how to get out of this saddening moment you are trying to play politics to cover the crime of your dictator. When an individual, group or government is working hard to destabilize others, his house will burn down to ash. That is what is happening in Eritrea. Wake up before it is to late!!!!!

    • Tesfa, I bet you work for the UN, how did ?I know, because you shedding a croc tears!!!
      If you are Eritrea if you think a thug is running your country? you must be stupid to run away from a thug instead of confronting but how can you, you don’t courage or what we call in Eritrea “maanta yelan” just hide behinde your wife’s skirt and troll the web!! what else can you do?!!

      • Wedi Nakfa,

        • betre talk is cheap your country is ruled by what you call thugs and you run away!! what a looser go and hide behind your masters skirt!!!

  14. Eritrea is actually setting up another terrorist organizations like Alshabaabi. Eritrea recruiting Ethiopian Djibouti militants to wage a proxy war against these two state is shortsighted. These militant groups, which Eritrea has no control of after they trained and dispatched, will end up being a terrorist organization just like Alshabaabi. Governments of Ethiopia and Djibouti will pin down these militants. When these groups are pinned down they clutch to anything on their way to survive to the point where they go to far to be a terrorist cell. At this point of east Africa region history setting up any militant group is a very bad idea. Eritrea is recruiting a terrorist cell in the name of a rebel group that needs to be stooped now.

  15. wedi nakfa and the other eritreans gim..and gone crazy..instead of talking about there own country problem they worry about others peaceful nation..ethio-djibouty are grown -there ppl live in peace and harmony..while this lemagn italian slaves flood there city with shirmutina and lmena…..in the midst of all this i wonder why the world is silent while the eritreans drown and sale there kidneys in the desert because of one man..i love him…tho…esayas is the best thing ever happen to this ..qitignam ppl..its sad now they have to come to addis and …qitignachewun yaragfubinal..gimoch…yetebedu…ahiyoch…
