Drone Attacks and Violence Across Western Oromia

OLLAA has received disturbing reports about drone attacks being carried out by the Ethiopian government throughout Oromia in recent days, leading to the deaths of civilians.
On October 24, 2022, the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC) both released statements highlighting recent reports of drone attacks in the West Shewa, East Shewa, and East Wollega zones. The Addis Standard has reported that at least 68 civilians were killed in a drone strike that took place in the Cobi district of the West Shewa zone on October 23, 2022, and that reports are circulating on social media that another drone strike may have occurred on October 24, although they could not confirm those reports at this time.
A credible source has recently provided OLLAA staff with a list of 87 individuals who were killed during the recent drone attacks in the West Shewa zone. The full list is available for download from our Press Release linked below.
