The burden of Ethio-Eritrea conflict was heavy on some families. Families have lost loved ones as more than 80,000 people were killed on both sides during the two years war. But there were also families who were condemned to live separately until the rapprochement initiated by the prime minister Abiy Ahmed brought about peace between the two countries after twenty good years of stalemate.

Husband and wife were separated. Children and parents were separated. It happened after Meles Zenawi’s government decided to deport Eritreans who happened to vote for the independence of Eritrea following the breakout of war between the two countries.

Here below we have presented you unforgettable and historical pictures from Ethio-Eritrea peace deal where the wall got broken with love and unity.

We, here at Habesha Times want to salute our beloved leaders Dr. Abiy & Wedi Afom (Esu) for building the bridge between these two great nations of the horn.
