The heroic Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) fighters operating in Easter Oromia, Eastern Harage zone have carried a sudden and coordinated attack on a TPLF led Ethiopian troops deployed in a camp in Qarsa town on December 14, 2010 killing 14 and wounding at least 7 a report we received from OLA Eastern Oromian command revealed.

Our freedom fighters have also confiscated military equipments from the enemy after the attack and made the property of the Oromo peoples’ struggle led by the OLF.

This surprise attack was carried by an “OLA Special Unit” during night time when the enemy troops are at sleep. The panicked enemy troops opened fire on each other leaving their camp in disarray in the middle of the night. Later after the first round of sudden attack ended, the enemy troops got help from another area but they were unable to drive away the OLA unit.

As was always the case in the past, the enemy troops, angered by the attack of the OLA Special Unit, have forcefully called the local population for a meeting and have intimidated them for alleged support of OLA and to “retaliate” on them (the civilians).

It is to be recalled that OLF News has reported on December 11, 2010 that OLA has killed 8 and wounded at least 3 in Northern Oromia, Northern Shoa Zone, that on November 21, 2010 OLA has killed 53 and wounded 38 others in Eastern and Southern Oromia, and that on November 25, 2010 that OLA has made 82 enemy troops out of action in Western Hararge zone, Bookee Xiqqoo County.
