Dawit Lijalem is currently a POW in a Tigray detention center. He says Fano Vigilante groups drawn from Dansha and Gondar went to Maikadra and massacred more than 600 ethnic Tigrayans. They returned to Dansha three days after and told ethnic-Amhara residents of Dansha that “MaiKadra is now free of Tigrayans” and that they can confiscate their houses and property. He says victims of the massacre were ethnic Tigrayans and rejects media reports that ethnic-Amharas were targeted in the massacre.
