A terrible accident has just killed 9 innocent people and wounded 12 more. It occurred after soldiers made a tragic mistake!
According to CNN, Ethiopian soldiers accidentally killed 9 civilians and injured 12 others in a military operation targeting insurgent militants, state media announced Sunday.
The innocent civilians were mistaken for members of the Oromo Liberation Front. The military fired on the group, only to realize after that it was a mistake. The incident occurred in the Moyale area of central Ethiopia.
The causalities occurred due to "wrong information that members of the force received" and was the result of an "inappropriate measure," the Secretariat of the Command Post said.
The soldiers responsible for the event are currently being detained. Officials are investigating the incident and trying to understand exactly how this tragedy could have happened.
Please join us in praying for all the victims and their families. We ask that God's healing grace will comfort them through this time.
