Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

The Central Union of Sudan Doctors –independent, non-government entity– announced on Saturday that its branches in Darfur confirmed that the casualties of the conflict in the region have risen to 248.

Under the cover of the military coup, armed militias and civil entities moved to carry out attacks against civilians, especially in the vicinity of Jebel Marra.

The Central Committee of Sudan Doctors in North Darfur state announced that 49 people were killed in the state as a result of the events that had transpired last October.

The committee stated that the difficulties faced by the population in accessing hospitals may be a reason for the lack of an accurate victim count.

The most severe attacks took place in the Kreinik area and claimed dozens of lives.

IDPs and Refugees Coordination entities have accused tribal components, supported by the Rapid Support Militia, of targeting the indigenous population in an attempt to seize their land.
