In the ongoing turmoil within Ethiopia, the Amhara region has become a battleground for Fano Fighters, who vehemently oppose the government. Simultaneously, the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) is struggling against the authorities in the Oromia region. Despite their shared dissatisfaction with the government, Fano and OLA are not aligned, each accusing the other of targeting their respective ethnic groups.

The Capture of Jal Marro’s Cousin

In a sudden turn of events, Fano Fighters seized the cousin of OLA Chief Jal Marro (also known as Kumsa Dirriba). Jal Marro, a significant figure in the OLA, has been actively involved in regional conflicts. The capture, however, took an unexpected twist when Fano Fighters, traditionally perceived as adversaries of OLA, demonstrated an unprecedented act of respect and humanitarianism.

Rather than resorting to hostility, the Fano Fighters safely transported Jal Marro’s cousin to Oromia unharmed. This unexpected alliance raises intriguing questions about the intricate relationships between these opposing factions. The act of sparing Jal Marro’s cousin suggests that, despite the conflicts, there might be nuanced alliances or understandings beneath the surface.

The Dynamics at Play

The capture and subsequent release of Jal Marro’s cousin shed light on the complex dynamics within the region. While the Fano Fighters are actively fighting against the government, their actions in protecting the OLA Chief’s kin showcase a layer of complexity not often seen in conflicts of this nature. It challenges preconceived notions about the rigid boundaries between these opposing forces.

One could speculate on the motivations behind Fano Fighters’ decision to spare Jal Marro’s cousin. It might be a strategic move to garner support, showcase a willingness to negotiate, or even express solidarity against a common adversary—the Ethiopian government. The situation emphasizes that alliances and enmities during conflict are fluid and can evolve in unexpected ways.


The capture of the OLA Chief’s cousin by Fano Fighters adds a fascinating chapter to the ongoing narrative of unrest in Ethiopia. As we witness these surprising alliances, it becomes clear that the complexities of the region’s conflicts extend beyond simple dichotomies. Stay tuned for further updates as we strive to comprehend the ever-changing dynamics within this challenging geopolitical landscape.
